Hmmmm- as a former featured illustrator ( my favorite, an Eno
illustration!), I can tell you poor ol' Mondo seems to have been dying a
slow death for several years. My perception is despite several game
attempts, they can't capture the fun the early Mondo's had. One factor
might be that the whole "tech" thing really has been made mainstream by
Wired, which itself appears to be past it's prime. It's truly a vicious
life-cycle for pop culture magazines...
I would be surprised to see another...
