Keeps getting better,

This review is from: Lucky Peach Issue 2 (Paperback)
Lucky Peach is a very unique quarterly primarily targeted at "foodies" (pejorative? or badge of honor?), but can hold its own when keeping the attention of varied audiences. It's got social commentary, cultural insights, and hell of a lot of interesting stories/viewpoints. The first issue of Lucky Peach was fantastic, but it is in the second issue that Chang's Lucky Peach shows that it's got what it takes to stick around and be worth your continued attention and dollar. It doesn't fall into food blogger-esque habits of relying on cuss words and attitude like a crutch, nor does it heavily rely on the pretension of constant name dropping of celebrity chefs and the hottest digs to be seen at. I really appreciate this, because I don't care about keeping track of the who's who in the culinary world. I'm also far from being a "good" cook or chef, yet the writers and Chang remain very relatable in their experiences/musings. Despite this issue's themes and cover involving rot, the bottom line is that Lucky Peach stays fresh.
There are also stickers in this issue.
