BATTLING THE ELEMENTS
The God of Thunder ends up in some pretty cold environments. Remember when he went to confront the Frost Giants? A little chilly, we imagine. Most of us won’t be going to Jotunheim for a vacation any time soon (although we hear you can do a free layover there if you fly the right airline), but luckily this hat works on the planet Earth just as well.
The Marvel Thor Winter Hat keeps your head toasty warm with a lining fit for the most brisk of Winter mornings. Flaps on the side for keeping your ears nice and warm, and the mighty Mjolnir right on front.
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
