HARBINGER OF THINGS TO COME
Harbingers are generally associated with the word “doom.” But there’s no good reason there can’t be a harbinger of mirth or a harbinger of joy. Smart and optimistic, that’s the sort of harbinger Faith would be if we weren’t talking about the capital H kind of Harbinger here. She’s a breath of fresh air in a world of debbie-downer superheroes. She does her day job. She saves L.A. in her free time. And hardly anyone calls her by her superhero name anymore. It ain’t easy being a psiot, but she’s still upbeat about it.
Honestly, we wish we could be more like that. But cynicism is sorta our thing. But maybe if we got this sweater, it would remind us to try? Jody Houser, Pere Pérez, Francis Portela, and Marguerite Sauvage have created something special at Valiant in their new Faith series. 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
