The Evil Life: Growing Evil, Chapter 10

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2019

After the Megaville-centric events of our last chapter where Hester and Gloom got up close and personal with the city, let's check in on the far away farm where our alien crash-landed a while back.

Is this our most depressing chapter yet? Hmm... yeah, IT IS our most depressing chapter yet! Blarf, as we now know him, is living a miserable bummer of a life and, according to this update from his holographic mom, the "destiny" awaiting him is dull as dirt. Just don't give up, Blarf! Destinies are for dorks and you can do better. Maybe.

If you're loving The Evil Life and you use Webtoon too, check out Chapter 10 over there and give us a heart or two, 'kay? Also, Nils and I recorded another podcast last week, so give that a listen if you wanna peek behind the scenes.

Next time we'll return our focus to Hester as she tries to put her disastrous encounter with M.I.D. Knight behind her and reconnect with the marmots. Bye!

Making Evil Podcast - Episode 3

Tuesday, October 15th, 2019

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

Tuesday, October 8th, 2019

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!
