REWARD EARNED: LOOT BOX
Admit it: when you click that OPEN LOOT BOX button, a little thrill runs through you as it lights up. Even the most jaded players get a rise out of the anticipation of exactly what might be in each box. Even if the only notable item ends up being a spray you’ve already got.
Well, no mystery here. We can tell you exactly what’s in this loot box: some batteries and an LED. It’s not Legendary per se, but it is pretty legendary as far as lamps go. Where else are you going to find a happy little Loot Box to light up a corner of your desk or your locker? No place else, because this little guy is a GameStop / ThinkGeek exclusive for SDCC 2018.
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
