Censored ‘Fortune’ Cover Featured Guantánamo Prisoners, Mexican Workers, Sinking Homes

So this is the cover Fortune magazine first assigned to comic book artist Chris Ware, who chose an accurate -and clearly uncomfortable- way to depict modern capitalism.

According to Chicagoist, Ware was asked to design the May cover of the magazine, but his final product, which featured Guantánamo Bay prisoners, Mexican factory workers, and a few potshots at money-grubbing politicians was apparently not what Fortune had in mind.

So here it is for your viewing pleasure.

Ah… don’t you just love the Internet?

  1. It is because of things like this that I added you to my Blog…I hope it is alright…

    Thank you, for being an inspiration and enlightening me in more ways than you can imagine!


  2. I love the Mexican “Fábrica de Exploitación”, a pesar del typo toda cuca con acentos y todo – even though it has a typo, it’s all dressed up with accents.

  3. guau!!! y qué tal la gente matándose en las calles? y el gringo apuntando una escopeta al mexicano en la frontera? y China comprando todo en Estados Unidos y vendiéndoles toda su mercancía??? está maravillosa… con razón Fortune la rechazó.
