Making Evil Podcast - Episode 5

Friday, March 6th, 2020

Nils-Petter Norlin and Nick Marino (that's me!) talk about the creation of Finding Evil chapters 1-4 (13-16 on Webtoon) of The Evil Life webcomic as Hester, Gloom, and Blarf all meet each other and go through some crazy @#$% in the process!

We break down some of our favorite moments in these four chapters, including some characters and jokes that hold a lil special meaning to us.

Like this one, for example...

Along with digging into the making of these chapters, we dish about printing minicomics of The Evil Life and we tease our upcoming underwater koala comic a bit.

And then finally after the end theme we drop some shoutouts to a few of our fave commenters on Webtoon!

The chapters covered in this conversation include Finding Evil 1: Fork It Over, 2: The Choice, and 3: Meet and Beat, and 4: The Audition.

Making Evil Podcast - Episode 4

Friday, January 10th, 2020

Nils-Petter Norlin and Nick Marino (that's me!) talk about the creation of Chapters 10-12 of The Evil Life webcomic, detailing Blarf's life on the farm, Hester's return to the marmots, and Gloom's soul-crushing day job.

We talk about our inspirations and goals behind these scenes, from subverting Superman to giving a talking marmot some serious page time to using real life at the office as fodder for Gloom's own struggles at work.

We also reveal some of our favorite tiny moments in these chapters, from pre-owned nails to Jerry shushing Hester to the sad toilet and lots more.

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

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...
