GO FOR LAUNCH!
It may still be awhile before you can buy that hover car or personal spaceship you have always wanted. In the meantime, how about a personal jetpack to get you around? Actually, that could be dangerous without any training (think of all the other jetpack pilots). Let’s start with something softer and safer, say, the Lil Jetpack 2000?
The Lil Jetpack 2000 is a red hot backpack that looks like a personal jetpack. Allegedly rated to five times the speed of sound, we recommend you make sure the straps are cinched up tight before heading out the door! It might be wise to alert the FAA and obtain supplemental oxygen, too. How are you with G-forces? We ask because we care! Like all of Sprayground’s backpacks, this design is only available in a limited run and will never be produced again. Don’t miss this opportunity to “go for launch”!
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
