A four-issue series in anthology format: Each issue will contain multiple isolated stories. The series will be a riff on the Japanese Edo-period game 100 Candles, in which samurai would try to one-up each other with stories to freak each other out. Here, the tellers won’t be samurai; they’ll be chefs from around the world, and their stories will be united by their focus on food. Bourdain and Rose previously worked together on the Vertigo series Get Jiro! and here, their writing will be accompanied by art from creators such as Vanesa Del Rey, Leo Manco, Alberto Ponticelli, Paul Pope, and Mateus Santolouco. It’s out on January 31, 2018.
Hungry Ghosts #1 Review
- January 1, 1970Brandon St MarkReally cool concept! Can't wait to read the next issue, though I think this will eventually be best read as a trade. I also really want to cosplay the character on the cover. I think the make up would look really cool!
- January 1, 1970Angus McKeoghJust a quick jaunt through something new from Anthony Bourdain. This first episode of three hits middle of the table. Nothing amazing but not terrible. A quick read of about 15 minutes. Three more episodes to come and I definitely love the concept of the Japanese ghost story samurai game. It appears to be on an uphill trek. Definitely keenly awaiting the next release.more
