Anthony Bourdain’s New Graphic Novel Features Militant Vegans

Bombastic chef and author Anthony Bourdain’s latest literary foray is a graphic novel entitled ‘Get Jiro,’ about the intersection of food and crime, the two subjects he has previously written about.

The product of a collaboration with novelist Joel Rose and illustrator Langdon Foss, ‘Get Jiro,’ is set “in a not-too-distant future L.A. where master chefs rule the town like crime lords and people literally kill for a seat at the best restaurants, a bloody culinary war is raging.” The novel features two culinary teams, The Internationalists, who prepare foods from all over the world, against Vertical Farm, who prepare macrobiotic vegetarian fare. Jiro, a “ruthless sushi chef,” is known to “decapitate patrons who dare request a California roll, or who stir wasabi into their soy sauce.”

Unsurprisingly, Bourdain, who is famously antagonistic toward plant-based eaters, has included gory scenes featuring threats from militant vegans written in blood.

What do you think? Is Bourdain’s novel, as he says, good-humored satire? Or will it further the negativity toward vegans he perpetuates?

    threats written in blood? Where are vegans going to get blood? Would they use there own; that would seem a bit strange.

    Chefs who run the town? Really? Bourdain’s self-importance is pathetic.

They say bad news travels fast, but I’d race vegan news against it.

WHY ARE WE SO CONFUSED?

The desire to be consistent morally results in an illogical rationalization of this nonsensical belief that it’s okay to eat the animals we claim to love.

Compared to the modern world, it was much harder to be vegan in Ma‘arrī’s time and place due to the religious and social pressures.
