Today at New York Comic Con, DC Comics imprint Vertigo officially announced Get Jiro!, Anthony Bourdain's graphic novel about ultra violent food nerds that battle over culinary arcana.

Bourdain will be working with novelist Joel Rose and it'll be illustrated by artist Langdon Foss. Vertigo's website described the graphic novel as a "futuristic action thriller that takes America’s newfound obsession with exotic cuisine to a manic, violent extreme. It takes place in a world where food and the secrets of how to prepare it are the source of all power leading master chefs to fight over Jiro, a mysterious top-notch sushi chef with ideas of his own."
