Rejected Fortune Cover

Comic book artist Chris Wares was commissioned to do the cover of Fortune's annual Fortune 500 issue, chronicling the richest of the rich corporations. However, his cover was deemed just a little to satirical/realistic for the folks at Fortune.

A look at the hi-res version lets you see why: while CEOs shower themselves with money and dance atop their corporate conglomerate, houses are underwater, people line up at the Milton Friedman check advance, and our neighbors to the South toil away in a shop labeled "Fabricia de Exploitacion."

This is the first I've heard of Mr. Wares so I'm not really sure what else he's done, but I am sure he's got some pretty hefty cojones to submit this to Fortune in the first place...
