Don't miss this original graphic novel from Anthony Bourdain, renowned chef, New York Times bestselling author (Kitchen Confidential, Medium Raw), and star of the Emmy-winning hit travel show No Reservations and the brand-new series The Layover! Co-written with Joel Rose (La Pacifica, Kill Kill Faster Faster) this stylized send-up of food culture and society features the spectacular, detailed, and dynamic art of Langdon Foss. In a not-too-distant future of food obsessed L.A., where master chefs rule the town like crime lords and people literally kill for a seat at the best restaurant, Jiro, a renegade and ruthless sushi chef, arrives in town with strong ideas of his own. It's a bloody culinary war of epic proportions, and in the end, no chef may be left alive.
Born in 1956, Anthony Bourdain graduated from the world-renowned Culinary Institute of America. He began running New York kitchens at restaurants such as Supper Club, One Fifth Avenue, and Sullivan's. His extensive body of work has graced the pages of The Times, New York Times, Observer, the Face, and Scotland on Sunday. He is an ongoing contributor and authority for Food Arts magazine. Bourdain's fictional works include two crime novels - 1997's Gone Bamboo and Bone in the Throat in 1995. His book Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly was a bestseller, with an updated edition published in 2007. In 2002, the Food Network debuted what would become a twenty-two episode series featuring Bourdain circling the globe and feeding his adventure eating habit with the most extreme cuisine the world had to offer. The inspired bestselling book, A Cook's Tour In Search of the Perfect Meal, met with huge success in the United Kingdom and the United States.
