Everybody who knows anything about illustration/graphic novels/alt-comics knows that Chris Ware sits atop the heap. They also know that Ware almost NEVER does interviews, but he agreed to answer Phawker’s questions and we’ll have that for you Monday in advance of his appearance with fellow American Master Charles Burns at the Free Library on Tuesday. In the mean time, check out this rejected cover for Fortune Magazine’s 2010 Fortune 500 cover. Its seems there is a limit to how many times you can bite the hand that feeds in one magazine cover art assignment. See below for a breakdown of all the slings and arrows Mr. Ware directed at ‘The Job Creators.’ P.S. we will also have a follow-up to our 2010 interview with Mr. Burns. Look for it Tuesday on a Phawker near you!
