9781401265007: Get Jiro: Blood and Sushi

Acclaimed chef, writer and television personality Anthony Bourdain and Joel Rose (Kill The Poor) return for the follow-up to their #1 New York Times bestseller GET JIRO from Vertigo.

In GET JIRO: BLOOD AND SUSHI, Bourdain and Rose examine the origins of the mysterious Jiro and what made him into the chef he has become. Born the heir to a Yakuza crime family, Jiro never longed to travel the criminal path laid out before him, but instead chose to secretly study the rich culinary history of his homeland--something that would have significant repercussions if discovered by his gangster father.

As Jiro's interest in the culinary arts deepens, his ability to keep his artistic and criminal worlds separate becomes too great, triggering a great personal loss that will forever change Jiro's path.

Review:


Q&A with Anthony Bourdain

What made you decide to write a graphic novel? Were you always a fan of the medium and had this story on your mind for a while?

Anthony Bourdain: I've been a comics fan since childhood--when I was a serious collector of early Marvels (1960s, MAD, horror comics--later began collecting EC's, a few Golden Age, and late 60's West Coast Undergrounds). An early ambition was to be the next R. Crumb. Sadly, my illustration skills--while decent--were not up to anywhere near that standard. When Joel Rose brought the idea back up after an earlier discussion, I thought, "What red blooded American boy in his mid fifties wouldn't do a graphic novel if given the chance? Let's try! As long as we can do it right." The fact that Vertigo, very early on, was supportive of the kind of high quality art we were looking for made all the difference.

How have your travels across the world informed this story? Did you draw inspiration from anything specific?

AB: Well, I clearly love Japan--and am obsessed with hyper-fetishistic, uncompromising old school style sushi, and due to my travels, have been lucky enough to spend a lot of time there. But the book reflects a lot of my food obsessions (funky classic brasserie/bistro) and prejudices. Travel changes you. It exposes you to things. My love of street food is certainly a product of my travels.

Food culture as a whole has been a bit of a phenomenon in the media over the last few years, but not so much in comics. Was that part of your motivation for wanting to create Get Jiro?

AB: I think the explosion of interest in chefs and restaurants is certainly easy fodder for satire. But my motivation was really nothing more than to help tell a story that would be fun, extremely bloody, beautifully illustrated--and insanely detailed as to the specifics of cooking and eating. I'm a big fan of classic Japanese cinema, Hammett's Red Harvest, spaghetti westerns and food--so these were obvious elements.

Your co-writer, Joel Rose, and artist Langdon Foss have both done comic work in the past. What was it like working with them, and how did their experience with creating comics help shape the book?

AB: Joel is the very first guy in the world to have ever published me--back when he ran the legendary Lower East Side literary magazine, Between C and D. He's a friend, whose books I admire enormously, who's been supportive--an even instrumental--in my career since the beginning, for over two decades. It surely helped that he also worked on some of the most influential graphic novels of the last decades and that he had previous relationships with Vertigo. Most importantly, he knows how to tell a story. I care less about that. I'm all about dialogue and atmospherics. I think we complement each other's work nicely. I hope so.

About the Author:

Born in 1956, Anthony Bourdain graduated from the world-renowned Culinary Institute of America. 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 22 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 best-selling book, A COOK'S TOUR IN SEARCH OF THE PERFECT MEAL, met with huge success in the United Kingdom and the United States. 

Joel Rose's most recent novel is THE BLACKEST BIRD, which has been translated into 13 languages. Previous books include KILL THE POOR, KILL KILL FASTER FASTER (both of which have been made into films), and NEW YORK SAWED IN HALF. For DC Comics, he wrote the graphic novels LA PACIFICA and THE BIG BOOK OF THUGS.
