PARTY LIKE IT’S 1999
It isn’t always easy to be a geek. Trust us: we have firsthand knowledge from our entire 8th grade year. Loving something, truly loving it, and putting that out there for the world to see makes you vulnerable. And that’s hard.
But Timmy’s here to protect and defend geeks everywhere. With his d20 shield and his superhero cape, a spotlight has caught him in the act of righting wrongs. And you know why Timmy’s got your back? Because you got ours. You’ve had it for almost two decades now. We started this little endeavor 19 years ago, and somehow it’s still going today. That “somehow” is you. Thank you for letting us exist. In fact, allow us to say thanks with this shirt, free with any $50 purchase.
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
