The economist cover: Terror and the Internet

Every so often a cover of a magazine will stop you dead in your tracks, like the Economist "oh fuck" cover in 2008 and the illustration of Trump on Der Speigel. This cover for the "terror and the internet" issue of the Economist is so simple, so brilliant it might even take you a second to see what it is. Yes, it's a speech bubble and a gun.

Below we have the cover without any text. It's such a good, simple illustration I would love to have it as a massive poster in my office. Extremely well done.
