Chris Ware’s Rejected Cover For Fortune Magazine

Acclaimed-genius comic book artist Chris Ware was commissioned to do the cover for capitalist magazine Fortune‘s iconic “Fortune 500″ issue (a list of the 500 top companies). Media Bistro reports that the finished result was rejected; upon inspection with a magnifying glass, it’s easy to see why.

Viewing the hi-res version reveals a multitude of subversive tiny figures including  CEO’s dancing a jig on top of the number “500,” China dumping money into the ocean, houses sinking nearby, orange-clad Guantanamo prisoners, and Mexican workers sitting in a “Fabrica de Exploitacion” center. It was all a bit too much for Fortune to handle.
