Finding Evil

Making Evil Podcast - Episode 6

Friday, May 8th, 2020

Nils-Petter Norlin and Nick Marino (that's me!) talk about creating Finding Evil chapters 5-8 (17-20 on Webtoon) of The Evil Life webcomic as Hester, Gloom, and Blarf hatch crazy schemes and settle into their new lives under the same roof.

We dig into some of Nils's best background jokes and references in these four chapters, including wacky book titles in Gloom's room, the return of the living sludge, and Nils's own secret appearances in the comic!

We also answer a burning question from Webtoon about Nessie, tease some more about our upcoming underwater koala comic, delve into the timeline of putting The Evil Life together over the past eight years, and drop some hints about the ending of this webcomic including a redacted question from Rosie.

After the end theme Nils tell us about his joyous May the 4th celebration this year, including all of the rad lightsabers he put together with his kids, the Mandalorian helmet he just finished, and the next helmet he's gonna make.

The chapters covered in this conversation include Finding Evil 5: Team Meeting, 6: Brain Food, and 7: Flavor Savior, and 8: The Ultimatum.

The Evil Life: Finding Evil, Chapter 8

Our mad scientist cooked up a recipe for mind control and then he went mad with power, squandering his sudden success. Gloom's failure could largely be traced back to a single moment: when he fired Blarf from the manager's position at his restaurant.

Looks like Hester gambled and lost with that one because Blarf is definitely intent on staying put at Knight Corp! Honestly, I can't blame him... he's used to being surrounded by people with little to no ethics, but he's not used to those people treating him decently in the process. I mean, the alien just wants to have a job and have some friends without getting hassled, yeesh!

Meanwhile, my quarantine continues. I recently passed Day 50, which was a somber reminder that this is some truly unprecedented stuff. I'm hoping it'll be safe to get back to some semblance of normalcy here in Cali before it hits Day 100.

But before then, we'll see how Hester's coping with Blarf's decision! Be back here in two weeks to find out. (And maybe we'll have a new podcast for you even sooner!)

Gloom designed the perfect recipe to control the minds of Megaville and he even tricked some schmoes into giving him dough! So... what's he gonna do with it?

Dang, this is a text book lesson in how NOT to run a business! Gloom, Gloom, Gloom... you're really letting us down with this one. GET IT TOGETHER, YOU VILLAIN!

Not too much to report over here. Still staying inside and working on comics. Oh, actually, speaking of which, I've got some comics for you: Holy F*ck and Cougar and Cub. Those are direct links to large PDFs (~150 MB each) that you can read while you're surviving the pandemic. Enjoy!

In a mere two weeks you'll find out the fate of Gloom's career as a restaurateur, not to mention the shocking career choice *plot twist* of another roommate!
