Chris Ware’s Halloween Cover for The New Yorker

Since Halloween is this Saturday, Chris Ware created a seasonally themed cover for The New Yorker that shows the holiday in a modern light. It’s really a genius cover, the children in masks and the parents bathed in the eerie light of their iPhones, classical looking but still entirely poignant. Mr. Ware also contributed a four page story for the inside of the magazine called Unmasked which is really well done and extremely well written like everything else the man does.

You can see a larger version of the cover and read the story over on The New Yorker site by clicking here.
