BECAUSE THE DARK SIDE CAN BE DARK
Vader went through a few different head options before settling on the helmet and face mask we’ve come to know and love and fear. First, there was the painted-white William Shatner mask, but that had already been done. Then there was this beanie, with a face on it. It was hip and just a touch menacing, if pulled down all the way. Eventually, Vader decided on his iconic look, but we didn’t want to let this beanie be forgotten.
Each Star Wars Darth Vader LED Light-Up Beanie features a knit exterior with Vader’s mug embroidered into the design (white design on black hat). But wait. When you push the button in the fold-over cuff, tiny cold white LEDs around the eyes and mouth grill light up. And when you push it a second time, they blink, as if a warning. And when you push it a third time, they go dark. This winter, protect your head with the power of the light-up Dark Side.
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
