“IT’S-A ME, MARIO!”
Relive the joy you felt when your Mario first ate a Super Leaf and acquired the brand-new Raccoon suit. The tail. The ears. The swoosh of dispatching a Koopa Troopa with a twirl! And then… with a running start, you did what no other Mario had done before you. YOU FLEW!
Fly like you did in 1998 with the Super Mario Flying Free T-Shirt. This 100% cotton homage to your childhood features the cartoon of Mario from the Super Mario Brothers 3 box, and a multi colored display of “Mario” floating behind him on the wind. Machine wash cold. Tumble dry low. Imported.
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
