Kiivas kokki slaissaa myös sarjakuvassa. On näemmä itte tehny sarjakuvan (kirjoittanut tai ideoinut, tai myynyt nimensä), jossa "Bourdain lets his dark fantasy loose through a strong and silent sushi chef named Jiro in Get Jiro!, the DC/Vertigo Comics book out Wednesday in comic shops and next Tuesday in bookstores."Bourdain slices more than sushi in graphic novel
Edit: Bourdain osoittautuu jonkinasteiseksi sarjakuvafaniksi:
Bourdain found scripting a graphic novel similar to writing for TV — he's also scripting for the third season of David Simon's HBO show Treme. In addition to his TV duties over the years, such as hosting the travel-and-food series No Reservations, Bourdain is an award-winning food writer who also has penned a number of cookbooks as well as prose crime fiction.
When he was a kid growing up in the 1960s, comics were his go-to, especially EC horror books, Mad Magazine and assorted underground comics. R. Crumb was a favorite artist, but he was completely enamored with Will Eisner and his cinematic The Spirit comics.
"He was the Orson Welles of comic books and really ahead of his time. I was just choked with envy and horribly frustrated as a young would-be comic artist with my total inability to even approach that kind of work," says Bourdain, who realized his artistic limitations by his teenage years.
His illustrations these days? "I doodle. That's about it."
