Unmasked is a short graphic novel written by Chris Ware and published in "The New Yorker" on November 2nd 2009. Unmasked tells the story of a married mother whose husband is always away. After that the grandmother reveals that her father had an affair, she realizes that her husband might cheat on her as well. Chris Ware tells a common story about infidelity and technology with quite simple drawing and uses the potential of comics to pass on his cynical point of view on technology and modern relationships. In this comic, Chris Ware emphasizes the banality of the mother's life and suggests that technology affects our relationships through juxtaposition of panels, page and panel composition and careful use of color.
