Cover Battle: Maxim or Newsweek

It's a classy — yes, classy — model versus a rocket-riding supreme leader.


Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s weekly Cover Battle. This round we have Maxim versus Newsweek.

Maxim’s latest cover features a classy, sophisticated and interesting photo that likely resulted in thousands of Maxim readers unsubscribing.


Newsweek went a slightly different direction with its cover. Here is North Korea’s Kim Jong Un reimagined as a James Bond villain. He fits the part, right? If you ask us, the rocket is nice, but it’s the hair that seals the deal.

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