GQ U.K has all the Bonds

So it seems I’ve been a bit scattered with everything showing up on stand at the same time, and I forgot GQ U.K’s November issue with it’s James Bond special (doing a bond cover one month after everyone but here’s the twist, there’s 6 of them! nicely played U.K), YUM.

GQ U.K

Let’s start off with the good things about this issue, number 1 there are 6 covers and they all kick ass. GQ U.K has gone all in for this issue and it looks absolutely amazing. All the covers are great, that goes for the photography as well as design, the color palette is perfect and really, seeing those makes me want to devour the inside of the magazine. They are definitely climbing back up on my magazine favorite list as this has scored some major awesome points. Now I don’t know about you but there are of course some tweaks that could have been made type wise to improve this issue.

The best cover for me has got to be the Sean Connery one, great picture and really nice type. The Daniel Craig cover is bit too much of an echo of the french edition of GQ. I would have liked to see the same layout they used for Sean Connery on Daniel Craig. But all and all, they rocked it and it’s a checkmate for all the other magazines covering Bond this month.
