Written by Anthony Bourdain and Joel Rose. Art by Alberto Ponticelli and Vanesa Del Ray. Cover by Paul Pope. 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. 28 pages, full color. Mature Readers. Cover price $3.99.
Written by Anthony Bourdain and Joel Rose. Art by Leonardo Manco and Maten Santolouco. Cover by Paul Pope.

And in the Spanish countryside, the rich Don of a sprawling ranch with an appetite for his stable gets a horrifying taste from beyond the dinner table. 28 pages, full color. Mature Readers Cover price $3.99.

One by one the candles are snuffed out as the ghostly game of dread and terror continues through the never-ending night. Next up, two tales of shocking horror: 'The way to a man's heart is through his stomach' takes on a whole new meaning as an accomplished young chef returns to his small-town home from the big city to find insatiable mouths to feed. And in the backroom brigade of a fine French kitchen, an abusive master chef gets what's coming to him in the most unspeakable of manners. 28 pages, full color. Mature Readers Cover price $3.99.
