Nadja Sayej reached out to Crumb on behalf of Vice to ask if he knew why. He said he received no formal explanation from EIC David Remnick, but that it’s par for the course for the magazine to reject several covers for each issue. “When you go to the cover editor’s office, you notice that the walls are covered with rejected New Yorker covers,” he added.
Venturing a guess, Crumb told Sayej it might be because “The New Yorker is majorly politically correct, terrified of offending some gay person.”
