Making Evil Podcast - Episode 7

Wednesday, July 29th, 2020

Nils-Petter Norlin and Nick Marino (that's me!) talk about THE END of The Evil Life webcomic! That includes Finding Evil chapters 9-12 and the Evil Interlude (#21-27 on Webtoon), which feature Hester, Gloom, and Blarf as they sell cookies, steal trucks, and battle their enemies on the golf course.

Hot on the heels of announcing our next webcomic, KUTE Crew, we're excited to finally talk openly about the making of that upcoming story and compare it to our creative process for the The Evil Life.

Going behind the scenes of this comic one last time, we revisit some of our favorite Evil moments. We also drop a few surprises along the way, including a detailed description of this deleted chapter...

...as well as the reveal of a super secret epilogue to The Evil Life that's only available upon request (dm me or email me to see it).

And then there's this...
...the digital collected edition of Finding Evil! It's a widescreen hi-res PDF that's packed with 200 panels of humor, action, and slice-of-life supervillainy.

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.
