THIS MATCH WILL GET RED HOT!
We’re not sure why Cuphead looks so dang happy. This ain’t an easy game, and his soul is on the line. And it’s not like it gets easier as you go. Plus, nobody’s happy to see him considering he’s basically the Devil’s bounty hunter for their souls.
And as a gamer, it’s hard to admit you’ve been defeated by a psychic vegetable. But, dang, it is rewarding when you get past it. Rewarding enough that maybe you should get yourself this shirt as a little reward for all your troubles.
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
