With the end of the year upon us (almost) we’re girding ourselves against the inevitable onslaught of top ten end-of-the-year lists.
But we were unprepared for the sheer number of lists Time magazine has pumped out for the end of the year.
One of our favorites is their top ten magazine covers of 2009. Their list? Two New York magazine covers (including Bernie Madoff as The Joker) and two New Yorker covers, Texas Monthly and The Advocate, among others.
Another list that caught our attention is Time‘s top 10 relevant comics about 2009’s political and social issues, including Al Franken vs. Norm Coleman from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, a Newsday number about Iranian Twitter users, and yes, even a Jon & Kate joke from the Atlanta Journal Constitution. View them all here.
