TIME is releasing a special issue on Osama bin Laden’s death. On Monday evening, TIME’s cover lit up the Nasdaq screen in Times Square in Manhattan. The cover features bin Laden’s face covered by a red “X.” This image has become iconic after its use with Hitler, Saddam Hussein and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. The bin Laden cover was illustrated by Tim O’Brien, who also designed the cover featuring al-Zarqawi.
The special issue will hit newsstands on Thursday, May 5, and will be available on the iPad on the same day. [Time]
