Get Jiro

This graphic novel didn't come to my attention until the unfortunate passing of Anthony Bourdain. It's published by Vertigo and it's decidedly different from any other comics on the market. In this near futuristic society freedom of expression is limited to food, that is where advances are and that's all people seem to care about. Rival foodie gangs struggle for power and in this hell-scape Jiro sets up a small unassuming sushi shop where his insane talents are quickly noticed by the top two crime lords who will stop at nothing to get him and his talents. It was alright, definitely inventive but overall not really my cup of tea.
