TIME is giving Osama bin Laden the Red X treatment.
The magazine said Monday that it will publish a special issue, to hit newsstands Thursday, on the death of the al Qaeda leader. The cover will feature an illustration by Tim O'Brien of bin Laden's face with a red X across it, making bin Laden the fourth person in the magazine's history to receive that treatment.
Previous recipients of the red X include Adolf Hitler (May 7, 1945), Saddam Hussein (April 21, 2003), and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi (June 19, 2006):
The bin Laden special issue is also expected to feature contributions from Joe Klein, Fareed Zakaria, David von Drehle, and Peter Bergen.
