Cover Battle: Newsweek or V

Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s weekly Cover Battle. This round features Newsweek taking on V. For its latest cover, Newsweek features an illustration of George H.W. Bush and the Bush boys — George W. and Jeb — in a mock Game of Thrones scene. We’re just glad there’s no nudity.

Meanwhile, for its summer issue, V went with Madonna — airbrushed all the way back to 1987 — and a creepy-looking Katy Perry.

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