  1. I think the New Yorker cover with the Iranian president on the cover should win, because it draws attention to a brutal, barbaric regime that publicly murders innocent gay men and gay youth or men and teenagers that have been accused of being gay or participating in homosexual relationships.

  2. I don't see much that's remarkable about the Marc Jacobs cover. Maybe he has a "friend" at the American Society of Magazine Editors. And the Spitzer cover is just a cheap shot that could be applied to most men at some time or another

  3. All three covers lack any color or verve... the Interview concept makes no sense, the Spitzer is adolescent... the wide-stanced Ahmadinejad with its whack of empty space wins by default.

    And slightly New York-centric a selection.

  4. I think the New Yorker cover wins simply by lack of actual competition. The other 2 are boring. Though I do really love Spitzer!

    Ahmadinejad takes the stall.. all the way!

  6. I don't get the Marc Jacobs cover either. I too would vote for the Obama/Terrorist Fist Jab New Yorker cover.
