Renowned chef, writer and TV star Anthony Bourdain has branched out even further with his first graphic novel, ‘Get Jiro!‘. This culinary satire, published by DC Entertainment’s Vertigo imprint, is a stylized send-up of food culture and society with undercurrents about America’s obsession with food.

The graphic novel, which was introduced at Comic Con, is set in a not-too-distant future L.A. and focuses on a sushi chef called Jiro. Master chefs rule the city like crime lords and people literally kill for a seat in the best restaurant. ‘Get Jiro!’ beat two Batman titles to take the #1 spot on the NY Times graphic novel bestseller list.
