Behold the Beautiful, Marxist — Rejected — Cover of Fortune‘s ’500′ Issue

warecover04232010.jpg

Chris Ware, the brilliant comic-book artist behind the Acme Novelty Library, designed a May cover for capitalist-cheerleader magazine Fortune, only to see it killed. We can sort of see why. A high-res version of the image reveals tiny figures celebrating with wine and music on top of the golden skyscraper. One helicopter shovels money out of the Treasury building while another dumps bills on the rooftop revelers. Greece’s Treasury, meanwhile, is empty; orange-clad prisoners sit in Guantanamo Bay; and in Mexico, workers sit cramped in a “Fabrica de Exploitacion.”

It’s a hilarious, beautiful, meticulous design. Shame it won’t hit newsstands, but we’re glad the Internet gives us a chance to look.
