BE UNAPOLOGETICALLY YOURSELF
You be you. Screw being Batman or a unicorn. That’s all funny and nice and everything, but you are the only person on this Earth who can be you, so do it with confidence. Do it with panache. Perhaps Faith can be your Spirit Hero to help guide you. (Spirit Hero isn’t a thing, we hear you saying. But shouldn’t it be? We’re going to make it a thing.) Mild-mannered blogger by day; L.A. heroine by night. In between catching up on her pull list and the latest Joss Whedon happenings.
Sounds a lot like real life, right? That’s what we love about Valiant giving Faith her own series. It’s real. Jody Houser, Pere Pérez, Francis Portela, and Marguerite Sauvage have created something special. Here at ThinkGeek, we wanted to carry her merchandise to say we believe in what they’re doing and we can’t wait to accompany Faith on her next adventure.
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
