WE’RE ALL GOING TO DIE
If anybody has a good reason to carry a go bag, it’s Rick and Morty. Except for them, it’d really be everyday carry, wouldn’t it? Because they’re basically constantly getting into emergency situations.
Be ready for anything with this Rick and Morty Space Monster Backpack. Fill it with your water bottle, first-aid kit, respirator mask, bootleg portal fluid – whatever you might need in a pinch. Or, you know, your laptop, books, and an umbrella if that’s how you roll. Whatever. We don’t judge.
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
