FIGHT THE GIANT DUCK
The Atari VCS aka the 2600, could really get into your head. You’d find yourself at school thinking about that stupid Pitfall! ragequit last night or how you could solve the whole Cold War problem with some strategically-played Missile Command. And don’t get us started on Space Invaders.
This Atari 2600 Cuff Beanie proves the VCS can get on your head, too. With vents printed on the cuff, this hat features the four-switch model console front. Just don’t go stickin’ any cartridges in that thing, k?
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
