Was Cargo too gay?
But, said Simon Dumenco, Media Guy columnist for Advertising Age, "saying that Cargo was 'too gay' presumes that it had legions of fans among gay men. it wasn't a must-read or a must-skim for any gay man I know." instead, the reason Cargo failed is that it "never quite knew what it was," Dumenco argued. "One month there'd be a male model on the cover, the next month nothing but typography, the next month a male celebrity, the next month a busty, Maximish babe. Readers just didn't know what to make of it."
