ORIGINAL AIRDATE – SEPTEMBER 18, 1982
On today’s exciting episode of Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends, Spidey catches another falling person! A Saturday morning cartoon staple for those of us who were kids in the 80s, this animated series even had narration by Stan Lee himself. “The Origin of the Iceman” shows us how Bobby Drake became an icy super and lets us watch him meet both Spidey and Professor X. It’s like our superpowers are time-travel and omniscience. Sweet!
This navy blue shirt features Iceman on his signature frozen ice slide and a rainbow stripe, in tribute to his coming out. As all the X-Men have repeatedly conveyed, it ain’t easy being a mutant, let alone a gay mutant. Different isn’t ever easy.
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
