Cover Wars: Whose Artfag Kung-Fu Is Stronger?


Well, it would appear that the worm has finally turned. After weeks of being shut out by PW, the Daily News and even our own Election Day dead pachyderm cover, CP comes back stronger than ever. Truly, Evan M. Lopez‘s cover illustration is the finest aspirational visual representation of Christmas in the 215 since, like, ever. Seriously, we take our hat off, Sir. Meanwhile, PW‘s cover may well be pink and scrapplicious at first glance, but if you squint real hard you can almost see the marks from the hands-free headset they used to phone this one in. It just seems so incongruous with the calendar, and then there’s the slapped-on Holiday pun. Guess these little piggies won the coin toss over the one with the kitten hanging off the clothes line and the caption HANG IN THERE, KID. And besides, everyone knows that pigs can’t talk. They just can’t.
