WHETHER OR NOT YOU LOVE HER, SHE LOVES YOU
Right off the bat, we’re going to point out that New 52 Wonder Woman might not be for everyone. Spoiler alert: she’s the God of War. She ends up committing an awful lot of outright killing. There’s the relationship with Superman. And we’re going to act like that teddy bear thing didn’t happen. Yes, we just did a Jedi hand wave at DC Comics.
If you love New 52 Wonder Woman, awesome. This robe has her logo on the back. If you don’t, the logo’s only on the back, so you never see it while you’re wearing it. The satin belt and trim have a silvery-white color scheme. We’re going to be cheesy and call it moonlight, because that’s what it reminds us of. And the rest of this this robe comes in the familiar red, white, and blue Wonder Woman color scheme. The polyester fabric is a sheer chiffon except for the silvery-white satin trim and belt. And the elastic gathers in the back hold the belt in place so you don’t lose it. Because we’ve met you.
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
