CAPE NOT INCLUDED
One of the things we love about Batman is that because he has no superpowers (and because Bruce Wayne is rich), he ends up with all sorts of awesome gadgets. That’s what a utility belt is good for. However, the utility belt has only a limited amount of real estate, and sometimes Batman needs to rely on other means to schlep all his crime-fighting paraphernalia.
Enter this Batman Tactical Issue Backpack, which has enough space in it for all your various batarangs. Black and grey, it looks somber, not happy, just as a Batman product should. And much like Alfred, it’s already considered all your needs. Top handle so you can grab it and go when the Batsignal shines. Padding for your tablet or laptop. Side pockets for your water bottle so you can stay hydrated. And a reinforced bottom because the streets of Gotham are rough, literally.
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
