The New Yorker, Dec 16, 2013

An unusually strident New Yorker cover marks todays sad news.

Update: it’s notable that this is one of the only cover tributes that references the young Mandela, the period he was still regarded as a terrorist rather than hero by the predecessors of many of those leaders paying homage today.

Not a magazine (though it looks like one) – but too bad “i” newspaper from Portugal could NOT run this cover because there was not enough time:

Although “i” newspaper didn’t run that front page, the also portuguese newspaper “Público” did it.
