HOT MUG OF HOT PANTS
What’s better than Wade Wilson, the Merc With a Mouth? When that merc has a long, luxurious ponytail of shiny blonde hair, keeps a tube of shiny lip gloss handy for that mouth, and goes by the name “Wanda.” The chromosomal cluster-hiccup that is Lady Deadpool is armed, agile, and a total nutjob recluse. But you’ll be fine just as long as you don’t cut this merc’s cable – she’ll get really mad if she can’t watch her shows. Guess they don’t have great streaming options in the Earth-3010 dimension.
Swinging into the action with a “BLAM BLAM BLAM,” this mug features Wanda Wilson and the Lady Deadpool logo. Pour in some nice piping hot… what does Lady Deadpool drink, anyway? Her tolerance is too high for alcohol, so probably not hot toddies. Tea? Hot cocoa with lots of marshmallows? Hot Tang? Whatever it is, pour that hotness into this mug and a skeptical Lady Deadpool appears (as if to say “Did you say ‘Hot Tang?'”), as well as Earth-616 Deadpool to join in the fight and coo “Heyyy Baaaeee.” Whew! That’ll warm up your innards.
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
