THE MAD TITAN
“Balance.” We don’t think that word means what you think it means, Thanos. See, if you’re worried about an overpopulation problem, killing half the population of all civilized worlds isn’t the only way to solve it. What about teaching those civilizations how to use resources more thoughtfully? You’re the most powerful being in the universe, right? Little Powerpoint presentation, maybe? TED Talk? Surely you could find some time in your schedule. Probably wouldn’t even have to get up from that floating throne.
Thanos is the feature of this tee that features things smashed together, much like Thanos intends to do with the universe once he gets those Infinity Stones. The bottom/right side of the shirt is a black tee with a grey Infinity Gauntlet and the quote “The hardest choices require the str[ongest wills].” The top/left side is a purple tee with a black pocket printed with Thanos’s head and the words “Infinite Power.”
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
