The "PC Magazine" in its review writes that Flak Magazine was "founded on the back of a placemat, prides itself on covering a little bit of everything. Topics careen wildly from music and book reviews to a feature story on the Unclaimed Baggage Center." [ [http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,4149,904679,00.asp "Flak Magazine"] , a "PC Magazine" review]

The content of the "Flak Magazine" is classified into features, opinion, books, film, music, web, TV and miscellaneous.
