Covers Sell

Osama X’d

Posted by Scott On May - 4 - 2011

Joining some distinguished company in the Time magazine archive, Osama Bin Laden gets the x factor. Sure to be a hot seller in the U.S. market, it will be interesting to see how it performs here in Canada?

Perhaps Maclean’s will do a spoof on this and do a “Halo” cover when Omar Kadhar is repatriated.

Thanks to Elinor for bringing this to my attention.
