Chris Stone, Sports Illustrated’s managing editor, said with the Boston Marathon occurring on deadline day, last minute changes were made, including swapping the planned cover for the one shown above. “After meeting with senior editors late Monday afternoon, we chose to run the cover photo because we felt it truly captured the horrific moment at the end of the race — there’s a fallen runner, police with their guns drawn and loose debris from the explosion,” explained Stone.

We’re sure there will be many magazines dedicating their latest issues to the Boston Marathon, so if you spot them, send them our way. We’d like to collect as many as possible for a roundup post.
