PLAYING WITH SUPER POWER
We’re not sure who it was that thought that Americans needed a black and grey striped logo instead of the four-color Super Famicom mark for the Super Nintendo, but we aren’t happy with that person. What, did you think that monochrome was “edgier?” Why did we get boxy, light grey, and purple instead of curvy dark grey, with four colorful buttons? That light grey surface went all yellowy-brown on us over the years, by the way. So thanks, whoever you are.
It’s the PAL region logo for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, enough to make any North American kid jealous, on the front of this black 100% cotton t-shirt. You don’t have to be in a PAL country to get this, but it is an exclusive design that you can only get right here at ThinkGeek. 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
