CELEBRATE WITH BB-8
There’s one thing we can all agree on: BB-8 needs to be hugged. The little round body. The slight head tilt. It just calls for corporal cuddling.
However, if you have the Sphero version of BB-8, you can’t really hug it. Well, you could, but you’d have to be careful, and it’s not really of a size where a real HUG is possible. You’d probably be best just patting it on the head and letting it go on its merry way.
This Life Size BB-8 Plush promises not to go on its merry way before you get a hug in. That’s because it has no motor inside. Just stuffin’. Did we mention it’s 2 feet tall? It’s weighted so the head stays mostly upright. Because nobody wants an upside-down droid, even a plush one.
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
