3000824One of my favorite titles that I am sad to say is coming up on it’s final issue is the Hungry Ghosts title by Anthony Bourdain (No Reservations With Anthony Bourdain) and Joel Rose (Get Jiro!). It has been a title that I look forward to every time I see that it’s about to come out. So, for today, we have issue #3 which was illustrated by Paul Pope (Strange Sports Stories) and Sebastian Cabrol (God Is Dead). In the last issue, we saw the stories get better and better with one story being about a man who is so obsessed about horse meat that he eats all of the horses on his farm until the horses get revenge on him. The other story featured a cook who ends up working with head goblins. In this issue, we have a French cook who re-accounts the days of when he started coming up in the school of hard knocks and ass demons. The second story follows a cook who develops a boil that turns into a mouth that all it wants is food. To read more about the issue and anything else Dark Horse related, just click here.

HUG3_WM-page-004I loved the artwork to the first story which was drawn by Cabrol and I liked the story overall because apparently there are certain people who have a ball in their ass that a certain demon loves to eat. While I thought that the idea of it was a little weird, I just said what the heck and I went with it. You have to expand your imagination and you also have to remember these are stories that Bourdain and Rose have probably collect over the years. The second story I think started off a little slow for me, but I loved the way it ended. I don’t really find the mouth on the stomach issue something I haven’t seen or heard before, but the way it ended was great. I wasn’t a fan as much of the artwork in the second story by Paul Pope as I was the first one. I also want to remind you of the fact that is not me saying that it was terrible. I just loved the look of Cabrol and his balding freaky cross between a skeksis and a ninja turtle looking creature. There is only one issue left and I suggest you jump on board because these are some cool stories. Check out my grades below:
