Managing editor Richard Stengel said of the issue: “We realized his life did fall into these chapters. There was the little Michael Jackson — the Jackson 5. There were the superstar years where he was the most famous, global celebrity and then the very weird, eccentric years. We thought that would be a great structure for the package — with that opening story about the news of his death and then a closing piece evaluating the music.”

The magazine features a double cover, with a special flip editon with his life in pictures.


This is one of the four separate tribute covers available from the magazine’s latest issue.
