Hmph, this is so snarky, but I can’t help but draw a parallel between America’s top two men’s magazine’s January 2013 covers, only because every single magazine issue I worked on, the editors would gather together and wonder aloud “but how will it look on newsstands?” So seeing the January 2013 cover of GQ, having my socks knocked off and immediately falling back-in-love with Bill Murray; my senses were rather deflated when Daryle’s copy of Esquire arrived at our doorstep. One definitely wins and the other is like whateva. Bill Murray makes my “yeah, I’d do him list” and Sean Penn … in that picture (yes, he looks diesel) but the face, not so much. Sorry, it’s true and I bet those editors at Esquire and shaking their fists and saying “Murray!” (like Jerry Seinfeld would yell “Newman!”). Nice way to kick off the New Year, GQ!
