Best Miami New Times Covers of 2009

The end of the year is almost upon us and since a lot of us are on vacation and too lazy to do any actual reporting, we fill up our time doing awesome end-of-year pieces recapping everything that was. Still, it's nice to take a step back and look at everything that was produced. And with 52 weeks in the year, that means we had 52 chances to piss off the residents of Miami-Dade County via our eye-catching covers. This year we had everyone from Iggy Pop to Star War superfans pose for our cameras. What will 2010 hold in store? Well, now that we are going glossy, let's hope for plenty of more head-turning design.

Take a look back at the best covers of 2009 as chosen by art director Pam Shavalier.
