Anthony Bourdain Will Dish Up A New Violence and Sushi-Filled Graphic Novel

Anthony Bourdain continues living the life most of us wish we could lead, hopping from one continent to the next, dispensing wisdom, and eating street foods across the globe that taste better than any single item on some high priced tasting menu you can find in the States. 

In 2012, Bourdain lived out another dream that many of us have probably harbored at one time or another in our lives: He wrote a hit graphic novel. Now Get Jiro!, Bourdain's bestselling story about Los Angeles food gangs doing battle with each other, is getting a very welcomed prequel.


As Vulture reportsGet Jiro: Blood and Sushi, which will be released this October, is coming out because Tony felt like he had some unfinished business from the first book. Teaming up this time with illustrator Alé Garza and cover artist Dave Johnson to show us the origins of the hero of his first book, Bourdain wanted to tell the rest of the story, but also wanted to have a good time: "I wanted to take the story back to its beginnings in Japan (albeit a slightly in-the-future, dystopic Japan), and indulge my own enthusiasms for both the place and the many classic genre films that have been made there. This is fun for me."
