NEW YORK — Simply days after the banning of “Maus” by a Tennessee school district made national news, two editions of Artwork Spiegelman’s Pulitzer Prize profitable graphic novel in regards to the Holocaust have reached the highest 20 on Amazon.com and are in restricted provide.

“Maus” was No. 12 on Amazon as of early Friday night, and was not obtainable for supply till mid-February. “The Full Maus,” which features a second quantity, was No. 9 and out of inventory.

Neither e-book was in the highest 1,000 at the start of the week.

Earlier this month, the McMinn County Faculty Board in Tennessee voted to take away “Maus” as a result of “inappropriate language” and an illustration of a nude girl, in response to minutes from a board assembly. Spiegelman’s autobiographical e-book, winner of a Pulitzer in 1992, tells of his father’s experiences as a Holocaust survivor.
