Best Comics: Get Jiro!

Get Jiro! coverHave you seen Yojimbo by Akira Kurosawa? How about Sergio Leone’s A Fistfull of Dollars featuring a very young Clint Eastwood? Or Last Man Standing with Bruce Willis? It’s basically the same story but in ¬†different settings.

Well, now you can add one more ‘remake’ of the now classic story of a man who plays two rivals gangs against each other. And since this comic book version comes from the mind of Anthony Bourdain, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that all the protagonists are part of the food industry.

I highly recommend this beautifully drawn and sumptuously colored original graphic novel. But be warned : you shouldn’t read it on an empty stomach.
