ARE YOU RESPONSIBLE THESE DAYS?
When you’re a teenager, you can get away with wearing a t-shirt and jeans to almost anything. You might get some eyerolls, but generally that’s all anybody expects out of your wardrobe. But you know, when you’re an adult – well, having adult clothing is the price you pay for being successful.
But there’s no reason you shouldn’t have a little swagger with that success. Don this Star Wars Lando Polo Shirt and feel debonair, or at least less naked. Channel your inner Lando when you tell your boss what you really think. Or… well, that might not be the best idea. If anybody asks, we didn’t advise you to do that.
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
