Only 364 days left till next Halloween
Jack is on a strict timeline. He only has 364 days to plan the next big day, and that’s not easy. He needs to keep track of time or else it’s just going to be the same routine and he’ll try and borrow another holiday again. We all know how that went last time.
The Nightmare Before Christmas Jack Watch features our favorite Pumpkin King as the clock face. He’s giving a bit of an inquisitive look, almost like he just crushed an ornament again and is fascinated by how it reacted with his science concoction.
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
