The illustrator Adrian Tomine writes: “Where I was in Brooklyn, I don’t think I would have even known that there was a major storm happening. So I spent the whole night glued to the Internet and watching everything unfolding, just being shocked that this kind of dramatic destruction was happening just miles outside my home. And I started thinking about how it would affect the election. This is a first for me in terms of doing a cover that’s topical with a quick turnaround, and somehow these two significant events just came together into that one image for me.”
