Hats off to the New Yorker, this cover for their September 30 issue really fuses the most important pop culture craze right now (Breaking Bad’s final season) and the most pressing issue in world politics (the Syrian Civil War)

Depicting Syria’s asshole president as a character in America’s most beloved show shows how cutting edge the magazine still is. The cover was leaked just hours after Breaking Bad won Best Drama Series at the 2013 Emmy awards.
