Anthony Bourdain's Hungry Ghost Gets A Delicious Hardcover
Mar 07, 2018
Foodies and horror fanatics rejoice! Dark Horse is pleased to reveal that Anthony Bourdain’s Hungry Ghosts hardcover collection is now available for preorder!
Anthony Bourdain’s Hungry Ghosts features terrifying tales cooked up by the best-selling author and veteran 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 bestseller, Get Jiro!). This collection also contains all-new, original recipes prepared by Bourdain himself, plus a guide to the ghostly legendary spirits behind these horrifying tales.
Inspired by the Japanese Edo Period game Hyakumonogatari Kaidankai or 100 Candles, played by samurai warriors to test their courage, Anthony Bourdain’s Hungry Ghosts reimagines this classic game of dread and terror as a circle of international chefs invoke modern tales of horror, terrifying yokai, yorei, and obake, all with the common thread of food—and pray that they survive the night.
This horror anthology features art from stellar artists Sebastian Cabrol (Caliban, God is Dead), Francesco Francavilla (The Black Beetle, The Lone Ranger), Irene Koh (The Legend of Korra: Turf Wars), Leonardo Manco (Hellblazer, John Carpenter's Asylum), Alberto Ponticelli (Unknown Soldier, Dial H), Paul Pope (Batman Year 100, Battling Boy, Heavy Liquid), Vanesa Del Rey (Redlands, The Empty Man, Hit 1957), and Mateus Santolouco (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Two Guns) with fantastic color by Jose Villarrubia (Conan the Cimmerian, Get Jiro!, Sweet Tooth), and a drop-dead cover by Paul Pope.
Anthony Bourdain’s Hungry Ghosts goes on sale September 19, 2018, and will be available for pre-order at your local comic shop via PREVIEWS.

“The supernatural side of Hungry Ghosts allows the creative team to flex some subtle, crafty muscles… The idea that the stories will get better and scarier with time is also a genius move for a serial book. Expect greatness.”—Doom Rocket
