NO, FOUR: TWO, TWO, FOUR.
See, really, two is enough. We’re going to give you a scarf and a hat. Two. What are you going to do with four, anyhow? You don’t have two heads, do you? Yeah yeah. We know you’re eating. But, look. Bryant sent us to tell you he wanted you to see this.
This black hat and scarf set is like a subtle nod to fellow fans of a particular cult movie about the future. To anybody else, you just have a teal blue dragon on your hat and scarf, which seems fine by us. And since it’s basically always raining out there, it can’t hurt to have an extra hat and scarf set, right?
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
