Diesel Sweeties To Leave Newspapers

FLEEN has an interview with Rich Stevens on his recent announcement that he’ll stop production of the newspaper version of Diesel Sweeties later this year.  Stevens has been maintaining both the web version and a second newspaper version since striking a syndication deal with United Features.  Stevens notes that Diesel Sweeties appeared in about 50 papers at its height, but that "My website and merch were a little over 90% of my gross income last year."

Also Stevens slips that he and Meredith Gran spoke at the Googleplex recently and their talk should be online some time soon.
