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.
