It must be nice to be a Krill. You’re better than everybody else. After all, you have a soul. And because of that you basically have the right of way in all situations. The Anhkana says so, in amongst many other things. (Seriously, that is a BIG book.) On the downside, you’re one of the few sentient races who needs higher SPF sunscreen than most of us require.
Proudly display your Krill tendencies with this shirt adorned with the alien language from The Orville. Unfortunately, the Krill writing doesn’t translate to anything meaningful, unless “QZK4GIEFM80XP96W” means something to you. Actually, that sorta looks like a VIN, now that we think about it. So maybe it is the word of Avis after all.
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
