SAFE IN KITTY’S HOME
Looking for a safe place to stash your cash and cards? Look no further than the adorable White family home! They’re happy to hang onto your stuff for you and make sure that it’s well looked after. And you can bet they won’t tell anyone where it is… not having any mouths, and all!
Your bills, cards, and ID will all be safe as houses, zipped up in this Hello Kitty wallet. Featuring Kitty and her twin Mimmy on one side, and their Mama and Papa on the other, the whole White family is here, printed and debossed with applique details. The zippered top locks the house up tight when you want to keep others out, but you’re always welcome to come on in and help yourself to what you need out of Hello Kitty’s house. After all, isn’t that what friends are for?
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
