Ah, our favorite nwktumblr feature is back: the also-rans! These are the alternate versions of our ’First Gay PresidentNewsweek cover that were left on the cutting room floor.

Which one’s your favorite? Your tumblrs are really digging Oliver Munday’s #2, but also like the simplicity #6 (the quote over white) brings to the table.
