ALDERAAN. NEVER FORGET.
Before it done blew up, Alderaan’s world-wide favorite pastime was flying kites. They had kites of everything imaginable – famous leaders, droids, ships, and donuts (well, spacedonuts). Well, now the Alderaanians are all space dust, but their love of flying lives on in these Star Wars Kites.
Choose to fly R2-D2, the Death Star, Luke’s X-Wing, or Han’s Millennium Falcon (hey, he won it fair and square). You can stage peaceful, floaty dogfights. The X-Wing’s swooping in on the Death Star for the trench run! Just like in the movies, only a lot more relaxing.
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
