FArF: The PEOPLE Magazine Cover that Leonard Deserved!

For this week’s Fan Art, I created what I think would be a much better cover tribute to Leonard for this week’s People Magazine.   I think Leonard was short-shifted in memory in the actual magazine cover that looks like this (and to add injury to insult, Kim Kardashian is on the cover,ugh!)   For Heaven’s sake People Magazine – what’s up with that???

People as it should be

I was hoping that Entertainment Weekly or even TV Guide would offer a better tribute cover, but no, he’s practically a speck on the cover! (or should I say, barely a Spock?)  It’s like he’s an afterthought — for shame!  I hope you all complain to them.  Here’s hoping they put out a tribute issue (I’m sure they will).

* A FAIR UPDATE:  I just got my issue of Entertainment Weekly in the mail, and yes, even though his photo is postage stamp size on the cover, there’s a full page pic of him contents page, a very nice tribute article on pg. 28, and in this week’s Bullseye page, Nimoy is in center with the words “Permission to mourn freely, Sir?”  (*sniff!*) They did a good job.  I’m sure the other mags have nice  tributes too– and I’ll probably post them here too.  Sorry I was grouchy, but I’m still glad I made my own version of the People cover!

Here’s the actual three covers for the three magazines: nkpg6y-aston

    What is it with chicks obsessing about magazine covers?

    I want this magazine, and not for the cover:

  2. It’s possible that the demographic for those magazines skews quite young, and it’s mostly the over-30’s who love Mr. Nimoy. I mean, look at you and me and Winston. 🙂

  5. There’s at least three Nimoy tribute magazines on newsstands right now: CBS, Entertainment Weekly, and Faces Presents. Each of these special issues are entirely devoted to Nimoy, including the covers.

  6. HI Shatoupee (love your user name btw!) I have the CBS one, and it’s beautiful! Hope to get the other two. Of course companies prepare these things in advance, and the CBS one has some pictures I haven’t seen before; I’ll be scanning some of it shortly. 🙂

  7. The EW special Nimoy tribute magazine has a photo of Spock and his first wife (from the set of TOS) that I don’t believe has ever been published before. I enjoy your website.

  8. I just got a call from my sister who found a copy of the EW version, she’s getting it for me! I’ll look for that picture — although I’m sure there are some people here who have seen everything! 😉 Glad you’re enjoying this, Thanks!
