Cover Battle: Details or Billboard

Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s weekly Cover Battle. This round pits Details against Billboard.

For its December issue, Details went with Christian Bale, perhaps the best actor in Hollywood. We’re not entirely sure what he’s doing in this photograph, but it wouldn’t be a stretch to guess that he’s debating lopping off a limb for his next role. We say go for it. The Academy will love it!

Billboard’s latest cover features Bruno Mars, the magazine’s Artist of The Year. We’d like to nominate Mars for Hair of The Year too. Yes, we’re jealous.

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