June Harper’s Sells Well in Canada

Sequential picked up on this article stating that early indications say the June issue of Harper's has sold very well in Canada. That issue, featuring Art Spiegelman's article on offensive cartoon imagery in the wake of last winter's protests over cartoon depictions of Muhammed in a Copenhagen newspaper, was refused distribution by the company Indigo. That this increased demand for the magazine, that customers were anecdotally grateful to those who did carry the issue, and that no riots seemed to break out despite its wide readership, all combine to make the original move by the magazine distributor look misguided if not outright goofy.
