KIND OF A BIG DEAL
If you’ve got it, flaunt it. Wear it loud, wear it proud – you run this town. Or at least until some upstart comes along and ousts you… but until then, you’re practically royalty! Let all passers-by know that you are not to trifled with. Young or old, newbie or veteran – you take no prisoners so they’d better come prepared with bunches of potions and revives.
Let everyone know what you’re all about with the Pokémon Gym Leader Tee. You’re a regional legend and aren’t going to sell yourself short. Poké Ball design front and center with the words “gym” written above and “leader” written below. Comes in grey 50% cotton, 50% polyester. Machine wash cold. Tumble dry low. Imported.
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
