Time Magazine Releases Special Issue on Osama bin Laden's Death a la Evil Bastard Edition

If, at the time of your death, you wind up on the cover of Time Magazine, or any magazine for that matter, with a giant red “X” drawn across your face it’s probably a good bet you made a few questionable life decisions.

Via: TIME is releasing a special issue on Osama bin Laden’s death — and we’re putting it up in lights.

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.

Abu Musab al-Zarqawi (June 13, 2006)

Saddam Hussein (April 21, 2003)

Japan (August 20, 1945)

Adolf Hitler (May 7 1945)
