The graphic novel, Get Gyro, is “about ultraviolent food nerds,” says the 54-year-old Bourdain. “It’s a gourmet slaughterfest, sort of like Fistful of Dollars meets Eat Drink Man Woman.” Alternately, he describes it as “Yojimbo meets Big Night and Babette’s Feast, an ultra-violent slaughter-fest over culinary arcana.”
In short: awesome. Could Get Gyro be what brings the cooking genre from manga into Western comics?
The graphic novel is set to be released sometime next year, presumably through DC’s Veritgo imprint. No artist is mentioned.
