Anthony Bourdain working on graphic novel about “ultraviolent food nerds”

Pin it

Anthony Bourdain has a new graphic novel.

Anthony Bourdain is and always will be more badass than you. Why? The dude cooks, drinks, smokes, sleeps with your sister, and sports an earring on his left ear, which everyone knows is the badass ear. And the list is only getting longer: Bourdain is currently working on his first graphic novel, titled Get Gyro.

As he told the venerable Omaha World Herald, his upcoming work will be:

about ultraviolent food nerds. It's a gourmet slaughterfest, sort of like Fistful of Dollars meets Eat Drink Man Woman. It's an ultraviolent slaughterfest over culinary arcana.

In summation, Bourdain loves ultraviolence and slaughter, knows the word "arcana," and is still more badass than you.

The graphic novel will be published by DC Comics in 2011.
