Cover Battle: Businessweek or Mental Floss

Welcome back to another FishbowlNY Cover Battle, where we ask you, “When was the last time you called your mother?” Or maybe we just ask you to pick which magazine cover you like best.

This week we have Bloomberg Businessweek taking on Mental Floss. For its latest cover, Businessweek featured an illustration of the Grim Reaper/Death, who — if we had to guess — appears to be have ended up that way because of a nasty smoking habit.

Mental Floss went with a much cheerier cover than Businessweek. And look, we know. How can anything beat a Calvin and Hobbes cover? But if anyone can do it, it’s Death. Right buddy? Haha! Still bros, right? Sorry about all that drinking.

So readers, which cover is better? You can vote, comment, or do both.
