New York Cover Sells!

check_mark_125x125Back on July 28th, 2015, I blogged about New York magazine’s Bill Cosby cover.  So, how did it do?

This issue sold 504 copies at a 50.4% sell-thru in Canada.  That’s a 70% improvement from the same time slot in 2014. I’ll bet it sold even better in the USA.

Perhaps someone will try a similar cover when the Jian Ghomeshi trial begins?  After all, it’s about the victims, not the celebrity.
