Giant Robot #57

Friday, December 12th, 2008 | 1 Comment »

From the cover to the newest edition of Giant Robot – a magazine about Asian American pop-culture. Eric Nakamura, the publisher and co-editor had this to say: “Why an Obama cover? Perhaps some of you are sick of seeing pop culture images of the President-Elect. I honestly was getting to that point, and that’s when I thought maybe I could learn more about it, and explain it to others who maybe felt the same way.”

The morning of November 5, 2008, Barack Obama’s faced graced the cover of almost every newspaper in the nation. He also made covers around the world. Here we have the front of the Maariv, published in Tel-Aviv, Israel. Thanks goes to reader Luis Menchu for pointing us to Newseum which has an archive of 730 front pages from 66 countries from Nov. 5th. Jump inside for some more example.

Several different readers have sent this one in over the past few weeks. This incredibly hot portrait was featured on the cover of the voters edition of the Willamette Week, a local alternative paper in Portland, OR. The original art is by Lukas Ketner and features a sweaty Barack wading through the water, being chased by a unicorn, with roses flying from his pelvis.
