THIS SHIRT IS SUPER EFFECTIVE
Ah, the Poké Ball shirt! The sign of a skilled trainer. Just don’t throw your shirt at a wild Pokémon. Unless you’re on Bourbon Street in New Orleans where that sort of thing happens. But make sure it’s an actual Pokémon you’re throwing it at and not just some drunk weirdo in a mask.
This long-sleeved red tee has a white outline of a Poké ball printed on the front. It won’t catch any monsters, unless maybe you yourself count as one. *peers suspiciously through monitor*
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
