Monsters and Critics (M&C) is a web-only entertainment/celebrity news and review publication with movie, DVD, video game, and music reviews, along with political commentary as well as coverage of world news, technology, sports, and science.
Monsters and Critics was founded in 2003 by James Wray and Ulf Stabe, who co-own its management company, WOTR Limited. Wray is the Site Editor, Stabe is the Administrator and Programmer, and its Editors are Patrick Luce - DVD (USA), Movies, and Music and Soundtracks; April Neale (formerly MacIntyre) - People and Celebrity (USA), Smallscreen, Beauty, Consumer Health, Arts, Lifestyle and Fashion; and Hector Cortez - Gaming (USA). Most of its readers and staff are in the United States. In addition to the English version, the group added a German language edition in 2006.
In January 2010, Protrackr.com estimated the website's potential worth at $3,911,040, its daily ad revenue at $1,552, and its monthly revenue at $46,560, with approximately 343,331 visitors per day, and 1,201,658 page views per day.
The Tech Herald
It also has a technology-focused spin-off, The Tech Herald. That site was created after some of the editors and administration staff of Monsters and Critics decided they wanted to be involved in a site covering science and technology beyond the small tech section on M&C. That site publishes news, does a little investigative reporting, and will in the future perform reviews, and also tests reported exploits and bugs to see if they are more than theoretical.
