WHAT’S THIS? WHAT’S THIS?
The Pumpkin King. A title like that speaks volumes. Jack Skellington is the the embodiment of all things spooky and scary in his hometown. This Halloween, wear this lounger loud and proud to show your allegiance to the true king of the season. And if the kids never show up at your door, it’s okay. After eating all the candy, you can just fall asleep in it, curled up in the couch, watching the best movie ever….
This Nightmare Before Christmas Jack Skellington Lounger makes you look like the Pumpkin King himself! It has embroidered details on the front and the hood. It’s the most comfortable pinstripe suit we’ve ever seen. But why limit it to Halloween? Or even Christmas? Really, this is crying out to be your year-round lounge wear. No, literally. Shh. Listen.
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
