POP AND LOCK IT
The year is 2002. The PS2 is two years into its reign as the console king of the time, and Lilo and Stitch just taught us the meaning of “ohana.” And then Square Enix releases some crazy looking game. One that combines JRPG elements with Disney characters? Sounds weird. No way that’ll work out. Right?
The Kingdom Hearts Cover T-Shirt features the iconic cover art of the original Kingdom Hearts games reimagined as cute Funko POP! characters. And we thought Donald and Goofy couldn’t get more adorable.
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
