US magazines are often known for their covers. The New Yorker's ironic cover of Barack and Michelle Obama as terrorists caused much uproar in 2008, as did Newsweek's 'Muslim Rage' cover earlier this year. The magazines were at it again this week, following the re-election of Barack Obama as president.

Bloomberg Buisnessweek's was perhaps most striking, presenting an aged and weary Obama in 2016, with a backup version showing Romney. Newsweek decided to portray Obama as Napoleon, emphasising the percieved strategic advantage of the Obama campaign. The New Yorker stayed simple, with a painting by Mark Ulriksen of the Empire State Building illuminated in blue by CNN.

Check out the covers in the gallery above.
