This is the first of a series of forum interviews with questions taken from our readers. R Stevens, the creator behind Diesel Sweeties, has combined the extreme look of pixelation with the bizarre concept of a former porn star dating a robot. The cast has expanded since those first strips about Clango and Maura, including people R Stevens has admitted are based on real life people. Since starting, he's had a brief try at a strip on Modern Tales (Kid Clango), started a monthly club for goodies (the Clango Club) and self-published his archives as a paper book with a shiny, shiny cover.

In the same spirit, Minnesota Public Radio recently sat down for a chat with Mitch Clem, who bills his strip Nothing Nice to Say as "the world's first online punk cartoon". Since I can find neither hide nor hair of John Crawford's Baboon Dooley, Rock Critic online, I'll let Clem get away with the claim.
