Behind the Scenes of GQ's Men of the Year IssueAnother year, another multi-cover production from GQ, marking the 15th Men of the Year issue. This installment is no slouch, with a smokin' cover of Scarlett Johansson, a James Dean-tastic James Franco, a bow-tied Drake, an inventive Stephen Colbert shot, and quite possibly history's finest Jeff Bridges portrait.

Beyond the five covers, the magazine is stacked with material parsing out the start of the new decade. GQ's goal was to "elegantly reflect the year," senior editor Dan Fierman tells PopEater. A year marked, specifically, by, "Creative breakthroughs. Sports heroism. Political upheaval. Great achievements in babeosity."

Here, Fierman delves into the making of GQ's Men of the Year issue.
