Making Evil Podcast - Episode 3

Nils-Petter Norlin and Nick Marino (that's me!) talk about the creation process behind Chapters 7-9 of The Evil Life webcomic, detailing our baby alien's arrival on Earth, Gloom's job interview, and Hester's confrontation with M.I.D. Knight.

We talk about shuffling our panels around to create the strongest possible storyline, hiding jokes in the background, Nils's excellent use of blood to aid the plot progression, and tons more about these latest chapters.

We also reveal Nick's secret cameo that Nils drew into the comic so long ago that now it looks like a completely different person...

You can follow The Evil Life webcomic here on this site or over on Webtoon. The chapters covered in this conversation include 7: The Gift, 8: Fight or Plight, and 9: Don't Look Down, and our tenth chapter will be out next week!

The Evil Life: Growing Evil, Chapter 9

Let's get right to it! We're picking up on the heels of our previous chapter, wherein Hester told the marmots that she has a plan to stop toxic waste from going into their habitat and Gloom has an interview for a soul-sucking office job.

Well *ahem* that's, uhh, quite grim. Sorry! I wish we could give you a happier ending for this chapter, but it IS called "The Evil Life" so it's not always gonna be all puppies and kittens around here, knowhutimean?

Make sure you pop over and read Chapter 9 on Webtoon too because this particular installment has a few fun tweaks over there, including a couple of extra jokes I added just to fit that style of pacing. We also hit 1k reads on Webtoon since our last chapter, so thanks for following and hearting us!

After the bummer that is the end of this chapter, Nils and I are gonna keep the bad vibes rolling with our next webcomic as we rejoin our alien friend and find out what life is like down home on the farm. See ya soon!

The Evil Life: Growing Evil, Chapter 8

Now that our adorable intergalactic friend has (maybe?) found a new home, let's check in on our student and our prince! Last time we saw Hester, she was feeling pretty ill and sought the aid of Megaville's marmots. And the last time we saw Gloom, he was on a disappointing astral phone call with his pressuring parents.

I've been on some bad job interviews in my day (wanna hear about the time I gave my would-be boss a foot-long chocolate fish?), but Gloom's waiting room looks worse than any of the ones I've had to sit in!

Oh, hey, before you go make sure you read all of the floors listed next to the elevator at Knight Corp headquarters. Nils-Petter Norlin decided exactly what kind of wacky crap is inside of this big building and I absolutely love his choices.

Look, I dunno about you but I've always wanted to get lost in a corn maze inside of an office building, just sayin'.

At least things are looking up for Hester, right? And we're not gonna make you wait too long because we're gonna show you exactly how well it's going for her and the marmot cause in a mere two weeks so be back here on October 8th to find out!
