KEEP WARM FOR YOUR HEALTH
Staying healthy is the key to keeping yourself alive. Video game characters know this all too well. When that red heart gauge reaches zero, they die. For non-bitmap humans like yourself, this is more of a challenge. There might be a lot more factors at play in the real world, but we can still provide that gauge. Except, it’s a little chilly outside, so you’re already starting off one heart down. Sorry about that.
Warm up by wrapping up in this One Heart Down Beanie and Scarf Set. Complete with three pixelated hearts, this hat and scarf both come preset to two red and one grey. Maybe if you put them on, you’ll fill all three hearts? We’re pretty sure that’s not how this works, but we’re going to pretend.
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
