FOR A MOVIE PALACE FIT FOR A PRINCESS
So Fandango apparently put a poll out to 1000 Wonder Woman fans, and 92% of them said they were excited to see a female superhero standalone movie. What? Talk to us 8%. You’re a fan of Wonder Woman, but you’re not excited to see her movie? Okay, so maybe they’re a bit trepidatious. We get that. We’re going with that because we can come up with no other logical explanation.
You know how when you’re a bit worried about how something’s going to turn out, you get the chills? We have the perfect way to ward off your Wonder Woman movie chills: this Wonder Woman Ladies’ Moto Jacket. On the heavy side of mediumweight, it lets you wear your fandom to the theater and keep the goosebumps at bay. That’s especially useful in the summer when the folks running the movie theater apparently think the place should double a cryogenic chamber. Perhaps Mr. Freeze is in the projector room….
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
