A REFLECTION OF YOUR FANDOM
You are vengeance, you are the night, you are… probably in serious need of a comb right about now. After all, you’ve been out all night fighting crime on the streets of Gotham, but you’re expected to show up on time and presentable to an 8am board meeting at Wayne Enterprises, and you’ll have to do it all again tonight. Who has time to blow dry when you’ve got a megacorporation to run during the day and streets to clean up at night?
Check your teeth for spinach in this Batman Mirror before you rush out the door / hangar / batcave. Shaped like the familiar Batman logo, this acrylic mirror is perfect for a wall or nook where you need a little extra light reflected. It’s not a perfect mirror. You aren’t going to extract wayward eyelashes from your eye with this. But it is good enough to tell you if your cowl’s on straight. It’s classy and subtle; no wonder your secret identity hasn’t been discovered yet!
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
