Hungry Ghosts by Anthony Bourdain

While the world is still mourning after the passing of LEGEND Anthony Bourdain, coming in October, the final graphic novel of Hungry Ghosts will be published by Dark Horse Comics.

Hungry Ghosts “reunites the bestselling writer, chef, and award winning television host with accomplished co-writer Joel Rose, his friend and longtime collaborator, for a series of horror stories inspired by the popular Japanese Edo period parlour game of Hyakumonogatari Kaidankai. The graphic novel substitutes chefs in place of the traditional samurai, and transforms the classic stories of yokai, yorei, and obake by adding a common thread: food is central to each bone-chilling tale.  On a dark, eerie night a Russian oligarch dares a circle of international chefs to play the Samurai game of 100 Candles—where each storyteller blows out a candle after telling a terrifying tale of ghosts, demons and unspeakable beings, praying to survive the challenge.”

The full color, 128 page novel, will go on sale October 2nd!! So in a matter of seven days, you will be able to enjoy this amazing hardcover book! It will feature:

·  5 all-new original recipes prepared by Bourdain;

·  An extended dedication and beautiful send off to Bourdain written by Rose;

·  Stories stunningly illustrated by artists Sebastian Cabrol, Vanesa Del Rey, Francesco Francavilla, Irene Koh, Leonardo Manco, Alberto Ponticelli, Paul Pope, and Mateus Santolouco, with amazing color by Jose Villarrubia;

·  The Real Ghosts, a handy guide to the legendary spirits behind the terrifying tales, written by Rose, with illustrations by Leonardo Manco;

·  A reunion for Bourdain and Rose with legendary comic book editor Karen Berger — the editor of Dark Horse Comics’ imprint Berger Books and recent inductee into the Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards Hall of Fame — who was the founding editor of Vertigo Comics, which published Bourdain and Rose’s graphic novel debut, the New York Times #1 bestseller, Get Jiro!

·  A jaw-dropping cover by bestselling comics artist Paul Pope.

Above all else, Anthony Bourdain was a writer. He wrote 14 different books, with a few more in progress at the time of his passing, and spend decades writing and starring in television!

“We hope you’ll celebrate Anthony Bourdain, and his love of story and food, by devouring this book. ”

Comics Release for January 31st 2018

New Comics Release for 1/31/18

January is already over, but with one last
hurrah we get some glorious new comics on the last day of the month. Here we
go!
From Dark Horse this week, the first book from
their “Berger Books” imprint curated by Karen Berger lands this week with
Hungry Ghosts #1. 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 and acclaimed novelist Joel Rose. 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.

From DC this week, a bunch of new goodies hit
the rack including Metal #5! For new offering we have Motherlands #1 written by
Simon Spurrier with art by Rachael
Stott. In a crazed future
where unhinged technologies and interconnected parallel Earths have given rise
to a spectacular class of super-criminal, the most beloved celebrities aren’t
actors or rock stars, but the bounty hunters who traverse an exotic multiverse
in search of impossible prey! But when the spotlight-shunning, strait-laced
tracer known as Tab finds herself in an ultra-violent race for her greatest
prize yet, she’s forced to work with her greatest enemy, the only person
capable of IDing him: her own elderly, overbearing and hypercritical mother,
who was once the most fabulous and celebrated bounty hunter of them
all.

Also this week the
“New Age of Heroes” continues with Silencer #1! Written by Dan Abnett with art
by John Romita Jr. “CODE OF HONOR” part one! She’s one of the DC
Universe’s deadliest assassins…and you’ve never heard of her. Super-strong,
highly trained, armed with devastating and stealthy meta-human abilities, the
Silencer is virtually invincible. Or at least she was. After decades as
Leviathan’s chief assassin, Honor Guest put in her time and managed to get out
with her skin intact. Now she lives a normal life with a normal family in a normal
house on a normal street. But the past has come back to haunt her in the form
of her old employer and a deadly new mission…and Talia Al Ghul won’t take no
for an answer.

From IDW this week,
the Star Wars Adventures Forces of Destiny concludes with its final offering
featuring Rose and Paige from The Last Jedi.

From Marvel this week, Phoenix Resurrection concludes with issue #5. A light in the
darkness is not always welcome. Kitty
Pryde, Old Man Logan and Cyclops are leading teams of X-Men all across the
globe, chasing events connected to the Phoenix. But with teammates disappearing
and familiar enemies returning, the X-Men are fighting a losing battle. Beast
doesn’t know how or what shape it will take, but he knows they are running out
of time before the Phoenix makes its true presence known. Meanwhile, a young woman named Jean is starting to go
insane in her peaceful, suburban life. Nightmares and daydreams are spilling
over into the world and revealing cracks in her reality. Jean’s life and
everything in it may just be a facade, but made by who? And why? Jean needs to escape. The X-Men need to stop the cycle
of death the Phoenix brings. Their worlds will violently collide as Jean
searches for an opening and the X-Men fight for closure. But when they are
brought together, will the X-Men be reunited with their long-lost teammate – or
something darker?
