SAVING THE WORLD, ONE PIXEL AT A TIME
Right now, we can opt to see Avengers: Infinity War locally in Standard, IMAX, 3D, IMAX 3D, 3D BTX, 3D RPX, 3D XD, BTX, RPX, XD, or Dolby Cinema. Our brains would like to know if our eyeballs really need all those options, because our brains don’t even know what half those acronyms mean. So we’re ready to take a step back to a simpler time. When heroes were 8-bit, and we liked it.
This long-sleeve blue ringer with yellow neck and sleeve cuffs has “I Believe in Heroes” printed in lossy pixelated white ink on the front. Blocky Iron Man, Cap’s shield, and the Hulk are printed on the right forearm, to emphasize what you’re talking about. Just remember that when you call an 8-bit hero, there’s a bit of load time first to be expected.
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
