WITCHES DIG SCARS
Why did everyone always want to see the scar? Was that the most unbelievable thing about Harry’s tale? Not that he survived the killing curse, but that it left a mark on his forehead? Kids get scars all the time! We don’t get the same reaction out of our forehead scar from the time we fell headfirst through a glass table…. At least we got a lollipop out of it.
A silhouette of Harry’s glasses and lightning bolt scar on a black, 100% cotton, shirt. Machine wash cold. Tumble dry low. 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
