7/11/18: DRAWING TO A CLOSE
Jul 10th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

A local comics creator’s poignant last work; wildfire season’s truly here; complaints against sheriff’s deputies ignored; WA’s first Latino heritage museum.

3/2/18: END OF THE ROAD
Mar 2nd, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

How Seattle stopped more freeways; lawmaker-secrecy vetoed; NHL ticket drive a smash; there’s still comics (and good comics at that) at ComiCon!

2/9/18: ‘FIGURE’ DRAWINGS
Feb 8th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

A cartoon guide to economics; who is, isn’t at city/Amazon summit; minor pot convictions in Seattle are erased; thoughts on the Winter Olympics; dozens of weekend events.

2/6/18: COLOR ME UNSURPRISED
Feb 5th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

The white guys behind a ‘Sick of White Guys’ book; why the Almighty Stock Price likely doesn’t matter to you; are new building projects slowing here?

1/22/18: RE-SISTERS
Jan 21st, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

To start off your week: Women’s March scenes; local comix legend dies; getting a taste of dementia; tech-biz sexism’s even worse than some imagine.

1/19/18: AND THE NOMINEES FOR CORPORATE GROVELING ARE…
Jan 19th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

In your big weekend letter: Seattle won’t get Amazon’s HQ2; pre-Women’s March thoughts; health-care-crisis comix; there’s a state construction budget at last; and scads of weekend events.

1/9/18: GENUFLECTION REFLECTION
Jan 8th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

A Seahawk makes the ‘New Yorker’ cover; another settles a bankruptcy; Amazon suppliers tread a thin line; a look just outside the billionaires’ compounds.

12/4/17: IN THE CARDS
Dec 3rd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Starting your news week: The woman behind a political card game; local reactions to GOP tax-scam bill; fish-farm salmon still out there; school funding solved at last?

11/22/17: IF IT’S NOT POLITICS…
Nov 21st, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

For your T-Day Eve perusal: ‘Other’ difficult holiday talk-topics; the local role in vinyl records’ comeback; searching for opioid-crisis solutions; plans for a Seattle AIDS memorial.

11/16/17: THE LAST SPLASH PAGE
Nov 16th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

For your Thursday edification: Zanadu Comics’ final chapter; state’s school funding still not good enough; locals bash feds’ latest threat to sanctuary cities.

10/27/17: NIGHT OF THE HAUNTER
Oct 27th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In your big weekend e-letter: Local-angle Halloween costume tips; out-O-state corporate $ behind 45th District attack ads; a half-million Amazonians now roam the earth; UW’s dental-school dean extracts himself.

8/1/17: RING THE ALARMS
Aug 1st, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Is the Two Bells Bar & Grill, Belltown’s “living room” for more than three decades, doomed for yet another high-rise? (And if not, how will it be saved?) Other topics this primary-election day include still more calls for Ed Murray to quit; Police Chief O’Toole’s odd statement on police brutality; the city’s misguided centralized-IT project; and the death of a legendary local cartoonist/illustrator/weatherman/ski promoter/supermarket spokesguy.

5/31/17: NOT SO ‘CRUDDY’
May 31st, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Wednesday’s MISCmedia MAIL starts with a great honor for one of my fave cartoonist/novelist/playwrights. It goes on to mention the “dirty” aspect of cleaning up Lake Washington; big-big plans for the UW; the apparent end to one of our era’s most famous couples; and five years after the Cafe Racer slayings (so many senseless slayings ago).

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 3/30/17: LIFE IMITATES CGI
Mar 29th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

It’s just a coincidence that there’s a computer-animated feature out now called “The Boss Baby,” and that the title role is voiced by Alec Baldwin, and that ads show the baby in a suit and tie with orange-ish hair. Really. In more deliberate occurrences, we note Daniel Ramirez’s freedom (at least for now); neighbors who want more public amenities in the expanded Convention Center; Jeff Bezos’ even greater (on paper) wealth; and the little Belltown restaurant that got big.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 3/22/17: THE ZINE SCENE, RE-SEEN
Mar 21st, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

The “ZAPP” archive of self-published zines, originally assembled by volunteers working out of Hugo House, has a new and safe home; though the ZAPP folks apparently had no say in it. As they say, it’s “complicated.” We also examine the need to re-re-clean-up Gas Works Park; Bill Gates vs. the proposed federal budget; a new “health scare of the week;” and national recognition to a great local artist.
