WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ON ANYWAY?
Psst, kid. We hear you’re interested in flying a TIE Fighter for the Empire. Being one of the few TIE Fighter Pilots of our class still alive, let us tell you why that’s a bad idea. For starters, these birds aren’t built to last. Cantina jukeboxes are made of sturdier stuff. Sure, you got your crash webbing, your repulsor lift anti-gravity field, and your high-g shock seat, but none of those prevent you from taking a shot where it hurts. While you do have an ejection seat, if you want a better death, don’t use it. Exploding is a quicker way to go. The “best” part? The near anonymity. At your funeral, people will say, “Wait… is this the service for DS-36-3 or DS-63-3? I always got those guys mixed up.” What I’m trying to say is… there are better careers out there. Go join the Senate or something.
This heather charcoal tee is speckled with a starfield all over. There are some TIE Fighters zooming in on the front, and the pocket is a bit of the Death Star. Better to keep that on your pocket than in it, considering how they tend to go out. Explosions may be good for cardio, but they’re not good when applied to the heart muscle itself.
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
