PROTECT YOUR LUNCH

Before they became the protectors of the Little Sisters, Big Daddies were the maintenance workers for the city of Rapture. In their big ol’ diving suits, armed with drills and rivet guns, they walked the sea floor to repair leaks, break new ground for the city, and complete construction projects. Until lunchtime, that is, when they might take a nice break on the support beam of an in-progress skyscraper. Is it a “skyscraper” if it’s underwater? Waterscraper? Oceanscraper? Whatever.

Kick back, relax, and open up your lunchbox tin high above the sea floor atop Point Prometheus. Just don’t offer to share your lunch with us, please. We’d really rather not know what Big Daddies eat for lunch.

Kitchen Nightmares!

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

Batman Logo Watch

What, you think Batman doesn’t have a watch to keep track of time? Granted, a Batwatch might have a laser cutter or something cool attached to it, but Batman for sure has places to be. He needs a watch to know when to be at the bank that Two-Face is planning on robbing. Might be a little embarrassing if he showed up late to that party. And possibly even worse if Bruce Wayne kept some Gotham millionaire waiting.

ThinkGeek’s 19th Anniversary Tee

It isn’t always easy to be a geek. Trust us: we have firsthand knowledge from our entire 8th grade year. Loving something, truly loving it, and putting that out there for the world to see makes you vulnerable. And that’s hard. 

Lion King Scar Lounger

All the lessons we learned as a child from The Lion King still apply to our adult life today. First, always listen to your father. A classic. Second, there’s the ciiiiirrrrrcle of life. Applies today and every day. Third, we learned that nothing beats the comfort of a lounger when you’re basking on a hot savannah day. (You remember that one, right? No? Must have been in the director’s cut.)
