TALK ABOUT A LIFETIME…
Time means nothing when you’re raiding that last dungeon. Well, it means nothing to *you*, unless you’re on a speedrun. For some reason bosses and parents are still sticklers for timeliness. So if you’re more likely to check your life bar than your watch, we have the solution: now you can wear your vitality right on your arm with this ThinkGeek exclusive watch, styled like a retro video game health meter! Three 8-bit inspired metal hearts, which can be repositioned along the watchband, surround the larger watch face heart. The bad news is: your health is already down a heart and a half. The good news? You’ve totally run a level on less!
On a dark, haunted night, a Russian oligarch dares a circle of international chefs to play the samurai game of 100 Candles--where each storyteller spins a terrifying tale of ghosts, demons and unspeakable beings--and prays to survive the challenge.
Inspired by the Japanese Edo period game of Hyakumonogatari Kaidankai, Hungry Ghosts reimagines the classic stories of yokai, yorei, and obake, all tainted with the common thread of food.
First course: With bad consequence, a ramen chef refuses to help a beggar, and a band of pirates get more (and less) than they were bargaining for after their encounter with a drowning woman turns ghastly.
Hungry Ghosts is cooked up by the infamous author and chef, Anthony Bourdain (Kitchen Confidential, Emmy-Award winning TV star of Parts Unknown) and acclaimed novelist Joel Rose (Kill, Kill, Faster, Faster, back again from their New York Times #1 best seller, Get Jiro!). Joining them this issue are stellar artists Alberto Ponticelli and Vanesa Del Rey, with amazing color by Jose Villarrubia, and a drop-dead cover by Paul Pope
