Cover Battle: O, The Oprah Magazine or The New York Times Magazine

Welcome back to another Cover Battle, FishbowlNY’s weekly event pitting magazine covers against each other. Today we have O, The Oprah Magazine versus The New York Times Magazine.

For its latest issue O, well, okay, we’re going to be honest: We only picked this cover because it’s absolutely hilarious. What the hell is going on here? “Surprise, Oprah’s home!” Yo Oprah, being that you’re Oprah, it’s impossible to surprise anyone, even if you’re emerging from behind a door floating in space.

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