Because mermaid or gorgon aren’t apparently enough on their own, Chad and Jared Moldenhauer had to mash the two up to create the most memorable boss of Inkwell Isle Three, Cala Maria. And also they had to make her gigantic. Only not really. Moving on.
This fleece throw gives you permission to bellow from the couch at all of your friends in the room, “You dared gaze at Cala Maria and now you must pay!” Hopefully they’ll pay in the form of soda and snack delivery so you don’t have to pause your game when you’re on a roll. Remember: you only have to convince one of them. Don’t abuse the power.
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
