CELEBRATE LAUNDRY DAY IN A BLAZE OF GLORY
It feels kind of weird to quote Game Informer now that we’re part of the extended family (“My uncle said it, so it must be true!”), but we’re gonna do it anyhow. They ranked Charizard top.
And they’re right. We’re going to be honest here: if we had a flamethrower move, we’d use it all the time. Celebrate the fiery goodness of Charizard by sitting around the house in this lounger. Best part: no risk of setting anything on fire. Wait, no. We take it back. Best part: wings. Measuring 5 feet wide, they have little loops for your thumbs or forefingers so you can flap to your heart’s desire.
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
