Time Publishing Special Issue on Osama Bin Laden

Time is publishing a special issue dedicated to Osama Bin Laden’s death on Thursday, marking the first time the magazine has ever released three issues in one week. Time released a special Royal Wedding issue today, and its regular issue goes on sale Friday.

As you can see, Bin Laden got the iconic “x” treatment from Time. It’s only the fourth time the cover has been used. Other “x” worthy people: Adolf Hilter (May 7, 1945), Saddam Hussein (April 21, 2003), and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi (June 19, 2006). That’s quite a list.

The Bin Laden issue will be the regular price of $4.99, and feature pieces from Joe Klein, Fareed Zakaria, and David von Drehle.
