DeLoreans aren’t the only modern marvels. Heat changing mugs are a marvel in their own right – especially if you put yours in the cupholder before you go all the way back to 1955. And then attempt to show how it works to somebody. It’ll blow their mind. We don’t recommend doing that, though. It took a lot of ingenuity for Marty to get back the first time, and we’re pretty sure your coffee would be cold by the time you arrived.
When this baby hits 88° F, you’re gonna see some serious stuff. Mostly Time Circuits that appear when the mug is hot (and disappear when it’s cold). Fortunately, the mug doesn’t need 1.21 gigawatts to work.
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
