HERE COMES THE SON
Darth Vader and his loyal Stormtroopers carry the weight of the Galactic Empire, doing the Emperor’s bidding. Walking the corridors of the Death Star, the quartet come together for a moment evocative of the Beatles’ iconic Abbey Road album cover of September 1969. We’d like to think John Lennon and George Harrison live on as Force ghosts and would enjoy the tribute as much as we do.
The Death Star Road Tee features Darth Vader and three Stormtroopers in the classic Abbey Road “zebra crossing” pose on a heather grey 50% cotton, 50% polyester t-shirt. Machine wash cold. Gentle cycle. Tumble dry low or lay flat to dry. Imported.
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
