A MEMBER OF THE IMPERIAL SENATE ON A DIPLOMATIC MISSION TO ALDERAAN…
Princess Leia’s iconic gown from Star Wars is not terribly practical. Good for being Alderaan royalty. Not so good for climbing around in trash compactors. But, then again, when you get dressed in the morning, you’re not generally thinking, “Hey. I wonder if I’m going to have to slide down a garbage chute today? You know what’d be perfect for that? The white, billowy thing.” Honestly, bell sleeves don’t mix well with real life. Fortunately, the folks at musterbrand get that.
Feel like a princess in this one-piece white bathing suit from our friends at musterbrand. It’s perfect for lounging out on the decks of the Khetanna or basking in the warmth of Tatooine’s twin suns. And while it’s definitely not warm enough for Hoth, it might work for fighting your way out of a holding cell on the Death Star.
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
