HELLO, MY BABY, HELLO, MY DARLIN’…
Emily Post makes it quite clear in her etiquette guide: you do NOT bring uninvited guests to the dinner table. Kane should have known better. Or perhaps he should have known better than to go into that chamber of eggs. Or perhaps he should have known better than to stare directly into an Ovomorph. However, we’ll follow Emily Post’s advice: “As discourteous as it is for someone to spring a surprise on you, be gracious.”
This black pullover hoodie features a chestburster in the appropriate spot. See, Kane may have been in a white undershirt, but we’ve seen your closet. Black is more your speed. So if you were to violate the quarantine procedure by being brought through the hatch into the spaceship without waiting the 24 hours for decontamination, you’d do it in something black.
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
