RUBBING ELBOWS WITH THE GALACTIC ELITE
You didn’t think the entire galaxy was made up of dusty farm boys, scruffy-looking Resistance fighters, unbrushed Wookies, and fall-in-line Stormtroopers, now did you? There are places in the galaxy far, far away that have style, where the elite from across worlds gather to enjoy themselves and the company of others like them. Join them, in the casino city of Canto Bight.
You’ll fit right in with the galaxy’s upper crust when you carry this purse. Featuring the Rebel Starbird with an art deco design and crosshatch textured simulated leather, another Rebel insignia appears on the tag. A generous main compartment is a must to hold all of your casino winnings, and this one is divided in two by a middle divider. Two small pockets on the inside, one open and one zippered, and the interior fabric features an art deco X-wing pattern. Adjustable long straps and small hand straps make it easy to carry, no matter what the size of your species is. A magnetic snap keeps it all closed, so you only have to worry about losing your wallet in the games.
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
