If you’re the sort of person who always has a good book at your side, this bag can serve that function quite literally. The Book of Vishanti, the tome which in Doctor Strange’s world contains powerful positive magic spells and counterspells against dark magic, served as the model for this bag.
Filled with all sorts of good things, such as your laptop, a couple of magazines, an umbrella, some snacks, your sling ring, this bag holds a lot. With the symbol of the Sanctum Sanctorum embossed in gold on the cover, no one will doubt your mystical abilities. You may want to brush up on your Sanskrit, though. Or, at least, keep Google Translate handy.
To convert to a backpack: Detach the end of the strap closest to the buckle. Remove the buckle portion of the strap and the slider. Thread the attached end of the strap through the two D-rings on the back of the bag. Reattach the buckle to the strap and clip to side ring.
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
