EVERYBODY OUTTA THE WATER!
Ahhh, the beach. The waves crashing. Your toes in the sand. It’s the perfect way to relax. To think of nothing except the dime-store novel you have with you along with your SPF 900. Unless, of course, it’s a Peter Benchley novel. In which case, your mileage may vary.
You know the Earth Day every day movement? We’re here to make “Shark Week every week” a thing. And with these board shorts, you can be a part of that. They’re covered with circling shark fins and one large gaping shark maw, ready to eat you or get its molars looked at by the sharkdentist. (No, sharks don’t have molars.They also don’t get cavities. TL;DR: the surface of their teeth is fluoride, and they shed them constantly.)
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
