Cover Battle: Popular Mechanics or O, The Oprah Magazine

Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s weekly Cover Battle. This round features two Hearst titles — Popular Mechanics versus O, The Oprah Magazine. We chose PopMech because the cover reminded us of the GI Joe action figures we used to play with as kids. Don’t even get us started on who is better — Snake Eyes or Storm Shadow. Seriously, don’t!

While PopMech went with a sort of serious cover, O went with, well — of course it’s Oprah. But how hilarious is this picture? Can’t you just imagine her yelling about how stupid the setup is during breaks in the shoot?

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