Joel Rose comic
Kitchen Nightmares! 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
Acclaimed chef, writer and television personality, Anthony Bourdain, and Joel Rose (Kill The Poor) return for the follow-up to their #1 New York Times bestseller GET JIRO!In a prequel to The New York Times best-selling comic from renowned chef Anthony Bourdain (CNN's Parts Unknown), Jiro is a young man learning his craft. The son of one of Tokyo's most powerful gangsters, he is torn between his father's plans for him and his own desire to master the art of sushi. The family is making a bold move in the Tokyo underworld, and if Jiro isn't going to get with the program, his half-brother Ichigo is more than happy to step in and do the dirty work.This bloody take on a classic crime and revenge tale adds an irreverent sense of humor and a futuristic vision of foodie culture, all with a flavor only Anthony Bourdain can cook up. Co-written by Joel Rose (The Blackest Bird) with art by Alé Garza (Titans/Young Justice: Graduation Day) and José Villarrubia (Promethea, BATMAN: YEAR 100).
