Cover Battle: W or Harper’s Bazaar

Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s weekly Cover Battle. This round we have W taking on Harper’s Bazaar.

W’s latest front page features Margot Robbie taking a dip while fully clothed. We had no idea going swimming with your clothes on was considered art. We always thought it just meant you had one too many whiskeys.

Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s Cover Battle. This week we have Fast Company going up against The Atlantic.

Fast Company’s latest issue features a lot of pink and Diplo, a man who is most famous for caring way too much about Taylor Swift’s butt. Hey, we all have to start somewhere, right?

Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s weekly Cover Battle. This round features The New York Times Magazine taking on V.

For its Innovations issue, the Times Mag went with a crumpled piece of paper with “In praise of Failure” written on it. It appears failing is a good tactic. High school would’ve been a lot easier if our teachers had known that.

Cover Battle: Rolling Stone or Shape

Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s weekly Cover Battle. This round we have Rolling Stone taking on Shape.

Rolling Stone’s latest cover features a very young Bob Dylan trying his best to look like a homeless person. We think the tire is a little over-the-top, but hey, we’d probably throw Dylan a dollar if we saw him like that, so job well done.

Cover Battle: Details or Billboard

Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s Cover Battle. This week we have Details taking on Billboard.

Details features a photo of Brad Pitt wearing an outfit that only he could pull off. Somehow, we view this cover and don’t think, “Why is this guy dressed like an eccentric and perhaps intoxicated 1920s airline baron?” Instead, we think “Silk yellow shirts with giant collars are great looking.” Behold the power of Pitt.

Cover Battle: Businessweek or Popular Science

Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s weekly Cover Battle. This round we have Bloomberg Businessweek taking on Popular Science.

Businessweek latest features nine photos of President Obama being as cool as the other side of the pillow. Republicans will surely enjoy this.

Cover Battle: Food Network Magazine or Variety

Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s weekly Cover Battle. This round features Food Network Magazine taking on Variety.

For its November issue, Food Network went with Ina Garten carving a turkey. We chose this cover not because its aesthetically pleasing, but because we imagine this is exactly what Garten would look like if she were carving up a human. That look on her face is downright chilling. “C’mon in. Dinner’s almost ready. Tonight we’re having roast Tommy — I mean, roast turkey.”
