Holy special issues, Batman! There were so many released this week, we made a category just for them, and still have one left over (see Vanity Fair‘s The Kennedys issue). These editions are best read cover-to-cover, but we’ve highlighted some can’t-miss stories in case you’re short on time.
And just when you thought it couldn’t get any more awesome, you’re also getting a handful of lists (the fun and useful kind, not the daunting and obligatory kind), and a few features on things that move (namely, the ones that help you get places).
To start reading any of the articles, simply open the Next Issue app on your iPad, Android tablet, or Windows 8 device. Don’t have a digital subscription yet? Download the app here and get unlimited access FREE for 30 days. No credit card required.
