    20 Year-Old New Yorker Cover Perfect For Today

    Kids getting off a school bus, armed to the teeth.

    That's some firepower.

    Artwork by Art Spiegelman.

    Spiegelman said this recently about the cover on his Facebook page:

    I did this New Yorker cover in 1993. Colombine happened in 1999, Newtown in 2012, nearly 20 years later. My wish for 2013: let Newtown be remembered as the turning point—I'm hoping that kids with guns can become ironic again.

    Thanks to Dangerous Minds for remembering this issue.
