Cover Battle: WSJ. or Wired

Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s weekly Cover Battle. This round features WSJ. taking on Wired. For its latest issue, WSJ. went with a simplistic photo of Scarlett Johansson staring at the camera. If you ever meet Johansson, please note that she will not appreciate you reciprocating this gaze.

Wired’s cover features a lump of coal, which is sort of like Johansson in that it’s something you will never truly understand, and even if you try to, your friends will think you’re being weird.

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