HALT, I AM REPTAR!
Reptar, inspiration to all babykind! The gigantic green dinosaur has both helped save the world, and helped destroy parts of it. He’s a complicated prehistoric beast in that way. But how will he handle this latest threat to himself and – we presume – all life on Earth? We don’t know, but we’ve really got to get our hands on some Reptar Bars before the show starts.
Reptar is the star of this black 100% cotton t-shirt! A small version of the infamous dinosaur roars on the left chest of the front, and a larger one is on the back, turning back toward the viewer and asking “Did someone say METEOR?” Machine wash cold gentle cycle. 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
