Two awesome discoveries in one day? Damn, I’m on a roll. The man, the myth, the legend: writer/chef/host of the excellent Discovery channel series No Reservations, Anthony Bourdain has co-written a new graphic novel called “Get Jiro!” along with Joel Rose, with art by Langdon Foss. The story has been described as “…a gourmet slaughter-fest, sort of like ‘Fistful of Dollars’ meets ‘Eat Drink Man Woman’ and ‘Yojimbo’ meets ‘Big Night’ and ‘Babette’s Feast’; an ultra-violent slaughter-fest over culinary arcana.’ count me in!
The book will be released July 3, 2012, and you better believe I’ve already got that sucker preordered.
Seriously, the dude not only has one of the greatest job in the world — getting to travel the world and write about the food and culture he experiences — the DREAM job, in my opinion, but he also is writing comics now? C’ mon!
