Anthony Bourdain's Hungry Ghosts Reviews

    Oct 24, 2018

    I always admire a successful person who crosses over into another field. Anthony Bourdain does a fantastic job of talking his first passion (cooking) and weaving horrific tales around what we consume. I truly believe that if he were still with us he would have gotten better and better ...

    Hungry Ghosts: Tales of Fear and Food from Around the World was Anthony Bourdain's last work before his death in June 2018. Bourdain, an admirer of Japanese folklore as well as graphic novels/comics, worked with several artists to compile Hungry Ghosts.They were released as single i...

    Anthony Bourdain loved creepy stories, and he was very fond of Japanese culture, and ?Hungry Ghosts? is his take on an old Edo-period Japanese parlor game. In the original context, guests would gather at night to tell each other folk tales and ghost stories; in the adjoining room t...

    It's a crying shame that Bourdain?s death means that we won't get to see this side of him come out to play again. I?ve been a fan of the man and his work for many years, but I had no idea he was such an aficionado of Japanese ghost stories. Hungry Ghosts is inspired in equal par...

    I'm starting this review by saying that I have changed my mind about Anthony Bourdain (sort of) in the wake of his untimely death. I used to hate the guy. His obnoxiousness to the animal world...ok, most people eat meat, I get that. But most people don't revel in eating endangered ...

    Wow!Alot of work and research went into this book.I loved it for its creativity,entertainment, are and historical integrity.A rare jem to hold in your hands.Even better to read and devour.The ribbon as a bookmark is classy and an awesome plus. ...

    Oh mannnnn I really wanted to love this. It could have been perfect. I don't know if it was a short production schedule or what but the transitions between issues just did not make sense. First it's these rich guys doing this ritual and I'm thinking damnnn this is going to backfire on ...

    An inventive set of tales that features all the tastiness of modern comics art (Francavilla and Pope and Santaluoco, oh my) but lacks a bit of substance. The stories, as is tradition in anthologies, vary in quality, which means some issues are half-full of great stuff and half-full of,...

    I was intrigued by a comic that integrated Japanese folk horror with cooking. Plus, I wanted to read something that may inspire me to try cooking different dishes. Gory images mixed with storytelling--graphic imagery and a taste of some of the Japanese folk tale (one I have to confes...

    I enjoy Anthony Bourdain's writing and mourn the loss of his voice. Unlike his other writings i don't hear his voice in my head when I read it, but I love that he worked in comics. His sensibilities still come through. I look forward to picking up the other issues ...

    Delightfully creepy selection of stories drawn directly from Japanese traditional tales, with appropriately brilliant and lurid illustrations. Not for the faint of heart or weak of stomach. The stories are accompanied by several luscious and elaborate Bourdain recipes which tie in rath...

    I read this in single issues, published January through April 2018. I highly recommend the collected edition once it is published (October schedule). I'm already missing the observational skills and honesty of Anthony Bourdain. He wasn't perfect but he was genuine. Those properties ...

    Japanese Ghosts, Food, Great Artists (Pope, Ponticelli, Manco, Francavilla) and Karen Berger. Already the anthology book of the year? ?- While reading this I learned about the dead of Anthony Bourdain, co-creator of this book. A lot of us Europeans might not now him but this Ameri...

    Horror book? Check! Has Yokai? Check! Graphic novel? Check! It had a so many things going for it for me and it just missed it's mark. Maybe because the short stories were not long enough to get me fully invested. I can not put my finger on it exactly. My favorite story out of all of ...

    As a homage to Anthony Bourdain, there can be no finer one than this. It incorporates his love of food, graphic novels and Japanese culture, all in one. The artwork is excellent, the creativity is superb and the spirit of the Edo era storytelling game among the Samurai is engrossing. T...

    General warning: this graphic novel is not for the faint of heart. It's, well, graphic. Basically, don't read it where children might accidentally read over your shoulder, that was my mistake when I tried to read it at lunch! These comics are basically a retelling and/or a re-envis...

    Delightfully Disgusting. Didn't expect this from Mr. Bourdain. A couple of years ago I wouldn't have been able to get through this book. It has some really gross stuff in it. REALLY gross. But thanks to Game of Thrones making the eating of raw horse hearts the stuff of TV, I can handle...

    A fitting tribute to Tony B. ...

    What a fine collection of scary stories that made for interesting reading. The fact that the late Anthony Bourdain had the foresight to put these stories together in one place made them accessable to all to read. The graphics are terrific and each story has an underlying theme, that of...

    Man this graphic novel was wild and more than gruesome but it was a fun time. I enjoyed the art and the different stories. I gasped a bit, said ewww a lot and chuckled more than once. I learned a thing or two about different types of ghosts and best believe I?ll be trying the recipes...

    Terrifying Tales Served Too Soon with a side of Mashed Pota-toes and Grave-y What could have been a fun Vault of Horror style romp is hampered by artwork a bit too serious for the, ha ha, undertaking. And shitty continuity that would shame the archivists and editors and cosplayers of ...

    I'm a fan of graphic novels and Anthony Bourdain, but not horror... if you love all three I can guarantee you'll adore Hungry Ghosts. I love the audacity of this premise more than anything- the combination of food, blood and guts, Asian monsters and comics sounds like it might be hard ...

    Although most of the artwork was quite well drawn, sadly, this book will make you lose your appetite. I never watched any of Bourdain's television shows, but was still sad to hear of his tragic death. Mental illness is a terrible monster in itself, and I think that these stories were B...

    Horror book? Check! Has Yokai? Check! Graphic novel? Check! It had a so many things going for it for me and it just missed it's mark. Maybe because the short stories were not long enough to get me fully invested. I can not put my finger on it exactly. My favorite story out of all of ...

    General warning: this graphic novel is not for the faint of heart. It's, well, graphic. Basically, don't read it where children might accidentally read over your shoulder, that was my mistake when I tried to read it at lunch! These comics are basically a retelling and/or a re-envis...

    I'm a fan of graphic novels and Anthony Bourdain, but not horror... if you love all three I can guarantee you'll adore Hungry Ghosts. I love the audacity of this premise more than anything- the combination of food, blood and guts, Asian monsters and comics sounds like it might be hard ...

    Although most of the artwork was quite well drawn, sadly, this book will make you lose your appetite. I never watched any of Bourdain's television shows, but was still sad to hear of his tragic death. Mental illness is a terrible monster in itself, and I think that these stories were B...

    As a homage to Anthony Bourdain, there can be no finer one than this. It incorporates his love of food, graphic novels and Japanese culture, all in one. The artwork is excellent, the creativity is superb and the spirit of the Edo era storytelling game among the Samurai is engrossing. T...

    General warning: this graphic novel is not for the faint of heart. It's, well, graphic. Basically, don't read it where children might accidentally read over your shoulder, that was my mistake when I tried to read it at lunch! These comics are basically a retelling and/or a re-envis...

    Delightfully Disgusting. Didn't expect this from Mr. Bourdain. A couple of years ago I wouldn't have been able to get through this book. It has some really gross stuff in it. REALLY gross. But thanks to Game of Thrones making the eating of raw horse hearts the stuff of TV, I can handle...

    I always admire a successful person who crosses over into another field. Anthony Bourdain does a fantastic job of talking his first passion (cooking) and weaving horrific tales around what we consume. I truly believe that if he were still with us he would have gotten better and better ...

    Hungry Ghosts: Tales of Fear and Food from Around the World was Anthony Bourdain's last work before his death in June 2018. Bourdain, an admirer of Japanese folklore as well as graphic novels/comics, worked with several artists to compile Hungry Ghosts.They were released as single i...

    It's a crying shame that Bourdain?s death means that we won't get to see this side of him come out to play again. I?ve been a fan of the man and his work for many years, but I had no idea he was such an aficionado of Japanese ghost stories. Hungry Ghosts is inspired in equal par...

    I'm starting this review by saying that I have changed my mind about Anthony Bourdain (sort of) in the wake of his untimely death. I used to hate the guy. His obnoxiousness to the animal world...ok, most people eat meat, I get that. But most people don't revel in eating endangered ...

    An inventive set of tales that features all the tastiness of modern comics art (Francavilla and Pope and Santaluoco, oh my) but lacks a bit of substance. The stories, as is tradition in anthologies, vary in quality, which means some issues are half-full of great stuff and half-full of,...

    Man this graphic novel was wild and more than gruesome but it was a fun time. I enjoyed the art and the different stories. I gasped a bit, said ewww a lot and chuckled more than once. I learned a thing or two about different types of ghosts and best believe I?ll be trying the recipes...

    Terrifying Tales Served Too Soon with a side of Mashed Pota-toes and Grave-y What could have been a fun Vault of Horror style romp is hampered by artwork a bit too serious for the, ha ha, undertaking. And shitty continuity that would shame the archivists and editors and cosplayers of ...

    I didn?t love this as much as I wanted to. There?s some great horror artwork, and the stories are ably told, but it was often kind of difficult to discern what exactly was happening, particularly at the end of some of the stories. ...

    Didn't work for me. It's the usual stories within a frame story setup, but the individual stories are all very short and don't have much impact. Some fantastically creepy art in places, though. ...

    A Russian oligarch wins a catered dinner and as a post meal game, he suggests the chefs join the guests and recreate a samurai-era tradition of telling ghost stories. What follows are 5-6 ghost stories told by different chefs that are less scary and more gory and gross. The set up is...

    I'm a fan of graphic novels and Anthony Bourdain, but not horror... if you love all three I can guarantee you'll adore Hungry Ghosts. I love the audacity of this premise more than anything- the combination of food, blood and guts, Asian monsters and comics sounds like it might be hard ...

    Although most of the artwork was quite well drawn, sadly, this book will make you lose your appetite. I never watched any of Bourdain's television shows, but was still sad to hear of his tragic death. Mental illness is a terrible monster in itself, and I think that these stories were B...

    While it was interesting (and some of the stories I actually knew, thanks obsession with Manga) there seemed to be lacking a concrete thread from one story to another. Some ended similarly while others seemed to just end. If this was supposed to be something of a roundtable of stories ...

    As I had expected these short stories all focus on eating. Not eating delicious mouthwatering food but disgusting and nauseating consumption. People eat horses, people eat people, ghosts eat people and it's all pretty gross. The stories weren't scary so much as just straight up gruesom...

    As a homage to Anthony Bourdain, there can be no finer one than this. It incorporates his love of food, graphic novels and Japanese culture, all in one. The artwork is excellent, the creativity is superb and the spirit of the Edo era storytelling game among the Samurai is engrossing. T...

    I always admire a successful person who crosses over into another field. Anthony Bourdain does a fantastic job of talking his first passion (cooking) and weaving horrific tales around what we consume. I truly believe that if he were still with us he would have gotten better and better ...

    Hungry Ghosts: Tales of Fear and Food from Around the World was Anthony Bourdain's last work before his death in June 2018. Bourdain, an admirer of Japanese folklore as well as graphic novels/comics, worked with several artists to compile Hungry Ghosts.They were released as single i...

    Anthony Bourdain loved creepy stories, and he was very fond of Japanese culture, and ?Hungry Ghosts? is his take on an old Edo-period Japanese parlor game. In the original context, guests would gather at night to tell each other folk tales and ghost stories; in the adjoining room t...

    It's a crying shame that Bourdain?s death means that we won't get to see this side of him come out to play again. I?ve been a fan of the man and his work for many years, but I had no idea he was such an aficionado of Japanese ghost stories. Hungry Ghosts is inspired in equal par...

    I'm starting this review by saying that I have changed my mind about Anthony Bourdain (sort of) in the wake of his untimely death. I used to hate the guy. His obnoxiousness to the animal world...ok, most people eat meat, I get that. But most people don't revel in eating endangered ...

    General warning: this graphic novel is not for the faint of heart. It's, well, graphic. Basically, don't read it where children might accidentally read over your shoulder, that was my mistake when I tried to read it at lunch! These comics are basically a retelling and/or a re-envis...

    Delightfully Disgusting. Didn't expect this from Mr. Bourdain. A couple of years ago I wouldn't have been able to get through this book. It has some really gross stuff in it. REALLY gross. But thanks to Game of Thrones making the eating of raw horse hearts the stuff of TV, I can handle...

    A fitting tribute to Tony B. ...

    What a fine collection of scary stories that made for interesting reading. The fact that the late Anthony Bourdain had the foresight to put these stories together in one place made them accessable to all to read. The graphics are terrific and each story has an underlying theme, that of...

    Man this graphic novel was wild and more than gruesome but it was a fun time. I enjoyed the art and the different stories. I gasped a bit, said ewww a lot and chuckled more than once. I learned a thing or two about different types of ghosts and best believe I?ll be trying the recipes...

    Terrifying Tales Served Too Soon with a side of Mashed Pota-toes and Grave-y What could have been a fun Vault of Horror style romp is hampered by artwork a bit too serious for the, ha ha, undertaking. And shitty continuity that would shame the archivists and editors and cosplayers of ...

    great illustrations, nonsensical stories. there were two stories that were just about rape and there were also two stories just about pulling something out of a guys ass. why??? a banquet for hungry ghosts by ying chang compestine did it a lot better, and had more recipes/explanatio...

    I didn?t love this as much as I wanted to. There?s some great horror artwork, and the stories are ably told, but it was often kind of difficult to discern what exactly was happening, particularly at the end of some of the stories. ...

    Didn't work for me. It's the usual stories within a frame story setup, but the individual stories are all very short and don't have much impact. Some fantastically creepy art in places, though. ...

    A Russian oligarch wins a catered dinner and as a post meal game, he suggests the chefs join the guests and recreate a samurai-era tradition of telling ghost stories. What follows are 5-6 ghost stories told by different chefs that are less scary and more gory and gross. The set up is...

    I'm a fan of graphic novels and Anthony Bourdain, but not horror... if you love all three I can guarantee you'll adore Hungry Ghosts. I love the audacity of this premise more than anything- the combination of food, blood and guts, Asian monsters and comics sounds like it might be hard ...

    Although most of the artwork was quite well drawn, sadly, this book will make you lose your appetite. I never watched any of Bourdain's television shows, but was still sad to hear of his tragic death. Mental illness is a terrible monster in itself, and I think that these stories were B...

    While it was interesting (and some of the stories I actually knew, thanks obsession with Manga) there seemed to be lacking a concrete thread from one story to another. Some ended similarly while others seemed to just end. If this was supposed to be something of a roundtable of stories ...

    As I had expected these short stories all focus on eating. Not eating delicious mouthwatering food but disgusting and nauseating consumption. People eat horses, people eat people, ghosts eat people and it's all pretty gross. The stories weren't scary so much as just straight up gruesom...

    Okay so I was really excited because I loved Anthony Bourdain?s Parts Unknown. And in a lot of ways, this book is a continuation of the themes he explored on the show, of mocking the rich and the wanton and seeing the beauty of little known myths and under-appreciated customs. Built ...
