Bourdain's Graphic Novel About "Ultraviolent Food Nerds"

New, 2 comments
Still from Anthony Bourdain's Alternate Universe

The ex-cook-who-tells-stories and master of all mediums Anthony Bourdain is working on a graphic novel about "ultraviolent food nerds" with DC Comics. Last year, Bourdain made a series of animated cartoon shorts, and this is the logical next step.

Targeted for next year, it's apparently going to be called "Get Gyro." He told the Omaha World Herald. "It's about ultraviolent food nerds. It's a gourmet slaughterfest, sort of like Fistful of Dollars meets Eat Drink Man Woman."

He also told Now Toronto, "I describe it as Yojimbo meets Big Night and Babette's Feast, an ultra-violent slaughter-fest over culinary arcana."

So manga comics meets samurais meets Spaghetti Western meets luscious food porn, all while foodies get ripped apart in an epic, bloody gore-fest? We'll have two, please.
