YOU NEED MORE THAN A PATCH JOB
Yes, yes, yes. Marvelous, isn’t it? Much better than those horrible pajamas he used to wear. They are finished. When are you coming to see?
– Edna, The Incredibles
We know what Edna has against capes. She’s shared that with us multiple times. Not that we asked. But we’re not clear on what she has against pajamas. Pajamas are comfortable. Pajamas are warm. Pajamas make us happy.
Now, these are not necessarily pajamas. They’re lounge pants. Which means you can wear them to bed. You can wear them while rewatching the first Incredibles movie. You can wear them while you’re out doing chores on the weekend. And you can wear them to work if you have pajama days like we do here at ThinkGeek World Domination HQ. We did mention that we’re hiring, yes, darling?
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
