The Greatness of Art Spiegelman’s ‘New Yorker’ Cover Art


In the Shadow of No Towers is one of the most chill-inducing and recognizable piece of 9/11-inspired art to come out after the attack. Spiegelman treated the subject with the same sort of respect that he gave to the horrors of the Holocaust in Maus, and created something moving, beautiful, and unforgettable.

But Spiegelman doesn’t just get the call up when tragedy strikes. He has churned out a handful of other New Yorker covers, some funny, others poignant, all memorable.
