Seattle P-I Publishes Last Print Edition Tomorrow; Tucson Citizen Saturday

Two major metropolitan-area newspapers will release their final print editions this week. The Seattle Post-Intelligencer will have its final print edition come out tomorrow, although Hearst has confirmed plans to continue to run the newspaper's web site. Saturday will see the last edition of the Tucson Citizen in anticipation of a full shut down. Each newspaper carries full comics sections and made their respective communities multiple newspaper towns with all the advantages provided comics in that situation. David Horsey of the P-I, a high-profile and award-winning cartoonist, has been employed by Hearst rather than his homebase Seattle newspaper for a few years now and will continue to provide cartoons for use by that company.
