“YOU HAVE AN ATOMIC BOMB IN YOUR BAG. IF ANYONE’S GONNA HAVE TAPE, IT’S YOU!”
To be clear, this bag does not have an atomic bomb in it. But given his propensity for Other People’s Stuff (“But what if I want it more than the person who has it?”), Rocket probably picks up a lot of trash along the way, and he’s got to have someplace to put it. Someplace like this backpack.
This backpack featuring comic book style Rocket Raccoon and Groot comes to us by way of Sprayground. They make these in limited runs and never produce that combination again, so if you dig this, you’d better jump on it. It features separate interior laptop and tablet compartments, but it also has an interior mesh organizer pocket for the assorted bits Rocket uses to make those sweet custom weapons. Or, you know, atomic bombs.
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
