Hallelujah! Anthony Bourdain to Publish Prequel to Graphic Novel Get Jiro

Remember how freaking bad ass Get Jiro was? Can you tell just how excited we are for a prequel?!

New reports say that Anthony Bourdain will publish the prequel, Get Jiro! Blood and Sushi, to his runaway hit of a graphic novel in October. And yes, this shit is getting sinister. According to a press release, the prequel will answer a very serious Bourdain question: “What if you were brought up in a family where murder is acceptable practice and making the best sushi on the planet is a shameful secret?”


The prequel will show Jiro’s backstory working for his father’s mob while becoming the world’s best sushi chef. Want to play catch-up? Read our review of Get Jiro here.
