Covers with character

Culture magazine Pen had Ultraman UV-coated on a single-colour black background. One thing characters often make for is a cool cover. This looks better in the "flesh" because of the coat etc. Meanwhile, this month art magazine Geijutsu Shincho explores "Cute Japan" via Hello Kitty (with slightly clashing pink and red. Ultraman wins the cool over kawaii race in my humble opinion).
