From Dark Horse Comics: 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’ re-imagines 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!

C’est lié au concept de la série, cette valse de dessinateurs ? (en tout cas, c’est très joli pur l’ensemble)

Oui, chaque numéro est composé de plusieurs histoires…

Ah, merci !
