Chewbacca Carries Esquire

Just proof that the Spanish edition of Esquire has far better covers than the U.S. edition, which is stuck in a multi-year cover design rut.

The above cover is occasioned by a one-page interview inside the magazine with Chewbacca actor Peter Mayhew. Yes, a one-page interview got the cover treatment, something few magazines do. But when it allows you to put a Star Wars pic on the cover, I suppose it's irresistible, just as it was irresistible to me to buy this issue, even though I don't read any Spanish. (Well, I can make out "Esquire," "Leia," and "Chewbacca," so I guess I can read some Spanish!).
