Is Anyone Reading Lucky Peach?

I decided to subscribe to David Chang's new food magazine Lucky Peach and I was incredibly excited when I got the first issue in the mail (which is all about ramen), but after reading it I'm very ... underwhelmed. I think the magazine assumes that those of us who are interested in food hang on to every word Chang says and everything Chang thinks. Bourdain's sort of over the top in the magazine, too.

I don't want to judge too harshly, it was just the first issue after all, but is anyone else reading the magazine? If so, what are your first thoughts? I did learn a lot about ramen, but I don't know if it's worth $10 an issue.
