“ROB LOWE IS HERE?”
Deadpool’s relationship status is… well, “complicated” doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface, but thanks for trying, Facebook. He’s best characterized as a pansexual, having married the succubus Shiklah, flirted with Thor, and been in love with the cosmic-entity Death. (You have to admit: Thor’s hair IS fabulous.)
So when we say “Deadpool is love” we mean all sorts of love. Gay love. Straight love. Self love (lots of that). Unicorn love. The pure love of a man for a solid fourth-wall-breaking t-shirt with his own picture on it. Like this one.
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
