Agreed. I too was interested in seeing what The Monthly was like. But graphically it has no impact - the cover is pathetic. Some of the writing is ok - but not of the claimed quality. But does one cut a new publication some slack, let it get up to speed? Or should the first issue start with a bang - you have more time to put together the first issue than any other?


The folks at The Monthly built up a fair amount of expecatation leading up to their first issue, but really did fail to deliver.

As I said in my post, the essays were good, without being great. I was expecting them to be great.

I will cut them some slack and buy the next issue, but now my expecations are even greater.
