The Kingdom of Wakanda has an embarrassment of riches at its disposal – and we’re not just talking about all that vibranium! When your King is also your greatest warrior (with claws no less!), you know you’re doing just fine. Add in a princess who is a genius inventor, some hardcore female bodyguards, and an arch-nemesis with the unbelievably awesome name of “Killmonger,” and Wakanda might just be the coolest destination on the map!
Invite visitors into your personal secret kingdom with this Welcome to Wakanda doormat. But be aware that savvy citizens will probably expect universal public healthcare, free university education, and a level of technology unsurpassed. But, you know, if you’re just having folks over for dinner, a supply of bandaids, witty banter, and free wifi will probably cut it.
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
