Is it possible to love five people at once? If they’re a family, why not! Our hearts are set on the Belcher clan, and not just because they make burgers and we like to eat burgers (though that definitely is a factor). Our love runs deep. But no matter how much we love the Belchers, let’s be honest – they aren’t always super loveable. Bob talks to his turkey baster. Linda maybe drinks too much. Gene has musical farts. Tina loves butts and erotic friend fiction. And Louise… well, she’s an evil genius. She’s full time #lifegoals.
But this Bob’s Burgers hoodie with a pastel logo and burgers down the sleeves is flippin’ adorable. See, you flip burgers? And it’s flippin’ adorable? Yes, right. We’re moving on.
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
