    Time and Newsweak (sic) do this from time to time, most famously when both had Bruce Springsteen on the cover.

    I thought that was one of the newsmagazine covers when he first got arrested. One (Time?) darkened it considerably so he looked more menacing.

    That's what I was thinking of. I don't remember the covers when he was acquitted.

    How do they use the same font and everything, though?

    Confusing. In a rack, from half a block away, they'd look almost identical.
