HITTING SNOOZE ON THE POKÉ FLUTE
Our Pokédex tells us that Snorlax wakes up only to eat, and boy can this Pokémon eat: the complete opposite of picky, it can devour even moldy food without upsetting its stomach, and it won’t even feel full until it has consumed at least 900 pounds of food. Hey wait, is this Pokédex entry about Snorlax, or about someone’s college roommate?
If your perfect day consists of getting your noms on, taking a nap, and then testing your skills against another Pokémon trainer, then this is the sleep set for you! Stretch out and enjoy sweet dreams of “Eat. Sleep. Battle” on repeat, in this comfy long sleeve raglan and matching shorts featuring the sleepiest Pokémon of them 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
