Time says this is the best magazine cover of 2009

New York magazine’s Feb. 22 cover is called “the hands-down winner.” Time notes that “the Joker-on-the-face soon lapsed into cliche … but New York exploited the idea first, and best.” || More great covers: 2) The New Yorker, June 1; 3) Texas Monthly, March; 4) W, October; 5) Tar, Spring-Summer; 6) The New Yorker, Nov. 2; 7) The Advocate, June 7; 8) New York, Oct. 4; 9) Interview, November; and 10) Vogue Australia, September.
