THEY KILLED KENNY!
You Ba… well, you know how the rest goes. We have seen Kenny meet his end more times than we can count at this point. If not for the fact that he has literally had conversations with Satan in the underworld we would just think he’s immortal. And more times than not those rats show up for a bite to eat. Kenny has practically sustained the entire rat population of South Park on his own since 1997.
Backpack featuring Kenny from South Park. Luckily, he is still all in one piece. The inside is lined with the rats just waiting for their next meal, though. So, you know it’s coming. Sooner or later.
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
