Hungry Ghosts #1

Hungry Ghosts #1 Review

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.

    Just 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 epi...

    Sorry, Anthony Bourdain but the Junji Ito collection and Image Comics' "Wayward" are way better than this collection of yokai and kwaidan tales. Still reading #2 though. Let's see if it gets better....

    This is an interesting concept. It came across as a bit disorganised: the opening page, and how it didn't relate right away with the premise, the odd profanity, the transitions between stories and the...

    Not the best horror comic ever, but it's the format I'd hoped for with two stories per issue and excellent gory art. Solid three star book with a bonus star for (view spoiler)[the sea monster lobster ...

    I've been meaning to read this since Anthony Bourdain passed away and finally got time to. This collection of short stories written and drawn by some of the top horror artists creates an amazing chron...
