Latest Cover of The New Yorker Features an Illustration by Adrian Tomine About The Election After Hurricane Sandy

The New Yorker

The November 12th cover of The New Yorker features the wonderful illustration “Undeterred” by Adrian Tomine depicting an intrepid New Yorker trying to find his polling place in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Adrian writes:

For all its really horrible effects, I feel like the storm has made real a lot of issues in the election that were hypothetical, that were thrown around as debate topics—global warming; and Is Obama enough of a leader to handle a natural disaster?; and Do we need FEMA? It’s really interesting, and in a way useful, to see a lot of these things become actual issues that are right at hand.
