YOU’RE KIND OF A BIG DEAL

We are the Resistance. It’s a dangerous job. We have to infiltrate battle stations, rescue VIPs, and throw certain shiny commanders into trash compactors. Occasionally we need to scrounge up weapons from dead Imperial fighters, dress up like short Stormtroopers, or carry enough tools to hack into a doorway when our droid counterpart gets fried.

That’s why we need the Star Wars Rebel Resist Canvas and Leather Backpack, available exclusively from ThinkGeek. The top flap has embroidered patches with “Member of the Resistance,” “Rebel,” and “Resist,” so that everyone around you will know exactly what a Resistance fighter looks like. With six outer and inner pockets, and enough room in the main compartment for about sixty portions, this rugged pack is the Resistance Fighter’s best friend.

Kitchen Nightmares!

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

Dungeons and Dragons Holiday Sweater

Do you think the elves in Santa’s workshop use their darkvision to be able to continue making toys throughout the night? You know, that combined with the trance thing probably makes for crazy working conditions. You think they’ve unionized? Santa should probably make sure the only bows in the workshop are the gift wrap variety because they’re all proficient with the other kind.

Harry Potter Hand-Controlled Candle

The image of all those floating candles in the Great Hall at Hogwarts is a memorable one. We like the books, too, but we’re very glad the movies exist if just to burn that breathtaking picture into our minds.
