WHICH HORSE DO YOU WANT TO TAKE OUT?
Time to call up an old friend for some classic gaming. No, not Bob who eats all but one of the Doritos and then leaves the bag as if he hasn’t just emptied it. Epona (who will never eat all your Doritos, but you might run out of carrots)!
Epona’s rearing up on her hind legs on this shirt, ready to face whatever evil Link encounters in rescuing Hyrule (again). Even better, Link and Epona’s silhouette is made from dozens of tiny familiar symbols from the games. Epona, because a trusty steed is always better than walking, areweright?
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
