FOR ALL YOUR HAPPY LITTLE TEAS
For Deadpool, Bob Ross’s “Let’s get crazy” tagline might be just a smidge late. Pretty sure he did that back in 1991. But maybe he did it as a result of Ross’s encouragement, since The Joy of Painting was going strong during Wade Wilson’s debut.
Celebrate Deadpool 2‘s bizarre homage to Bob Ross immortalized as a coffee mug. Fill it with whatever makes you happy. Or, better yet, use it as a paint water mug for cleaning your brushes after you whack them off! Just remember not to drink Yellow Snow. It’s nasty.
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
