Copy Cat and/or Recycled Radar?

Here's a better image of the upcoming Radar issue hitting newsstands August 18th. The cover image was created by George Lois who also created the similar 1968 Esquire cover with Muhammed Ali.

This tells me that this issue is already off to a weak start. Kurt Andersen reviewed the first issue of the relaunched Radar as a "A Very Familiar Magazine" because most of the stories could be found in any general lifestyle magazine and the other half of the stories were recycled ideas. Andersen said, "Radar’s Four Seasons VIP seating map is reminiscent of Spy’s Russian Tea Room VIP seating map." He has a longer list of examples like that one, but it gives you the idea that cover images are the same to these guys.

Lois seemed to have no problem recreating his controversial cover to include Tom. He also thinks covers today suck

becuase, "You can't just slap a picture of Nicole Kidman on your cover and expect people to say, 'Wow! What a cover!' It's just another picture of Nicole. Who gives a shit?" Seems like someone is pissed off that celebrities sell instead of a more artistic approach to covers. People just aren't that deep anymore.
