Probably this copywriter monkey’s favorite thing about the Solo movie is that all our Han Solo products no longer feature him frozen in carbonite. There are only so many different things you can say about that, and we ran out somewhere between Business Card Case and Fridge. (Rug. Cutting board. Ice cube tray. Shower curtain. Bank. Bottle opener….) You know what color this shirt reminds us of? Carbonite. Yup. It’s like Han’s in carbonite AGAIN. Only this time you’re in the carbonite with him once you don this shirt. But that could be okay. It looks safe. And comfy.
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
