COLOR US HAPPY
We never played Rainbow Islands (either in the arcade or on the NES), but after reading about it we wish we had. Wait. We can drop a rainbow on a bad guy to kill him? Yes, please. We need that to happen in real life.
Presumably this 8-bit rainbow leads to an 8-bit Asgard or has Super Mario coins at its base. But right now, it’s on your head. Literally. This comfy, unstructured 6-panel black cap with black covered eyelets features a four color 8-bit rainbow embroidered on the front and has an adjustable strapback closure so even characters with those oversized 8-bit heads (we’re looking at you, Mario) can wear it.
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
