CHRIS WARE'S Awesome Yet Rejected Fortune 500 Cover

Chris Ware is one of my favorite artists of all time. Want to know why? Just check out the Acme Novelty Theater and you'll begin to realize his genius.

Always one to be involved in satire Ware's cover was filled with jokes like U.S. Treasuring being raided by Wall Street, China dumping money into the ocean, homes being flooded, homes being foreclosed, CEOs dancing a jig while society devolves into chaos and even a slap at the Evil Cult known as the Tea Party. Here's the cover:
