A brief history of the end of the world, 2000-2011, in newspaper covers


If you're doing a double-take on the way past one of our red Boston Phoenix boxes this week, you're not alone -- Faraone amused himself for an hour this morning watching the whiplash at Forest Hills. You may have noticed that we took a different approach with this week's cover for our first (and last?) ever Rapture Issue. And lest anyone fret that we've decided to steal the Herald's typeface, we thought we'd clarify our inspiration for our tribute to the End Times.

To wit: this week's cover is an homage to one of my favorite magazine covers of all time -- the last 20th Century edition of the Weekly World News.

    Really!!!  You do this for just a sales pitch....  There are people trying to live life and having lives taken away everyday....   How is a reminder helpful?   You ALL should be ASHAMED of yourselves...
