THE WINTER SOLDIER
Cap is accustomed to being cold. He was on an extended winter vacation, after all. We figure the next time he decides to be ice cubed, he’ll probably wear some warmer gear to at least make it more comfortable. We’ll start with the logical place – the head.
Warm enough to survive being trapped in ice for a while, or at least to help stave off the brisk winter mornings, this hat is made of cotton and polyester with a fuzzy warm lining. Flaps that unsnap give your ears extra protection against the elements and those pesky Hydra agents.
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
