The Evil Life

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.

The chapters covered in this conversation include Evil Interlude, 9: Stand Down pt. 1, 10: Stand Down pt. 2, 11: The Club pt. 1, and 12: The Club pt. 2. Thanks for reading The Evil Life! We appreciate you! And don't miss the launch of KUTE Crew on August 4, 2020. You can find out more about it here.

I want to send a special thanks to my amazing wife Rosie Knight, who was a fantastic sounding board and consultant throughout my work on The Evil Life. She has a book coming out soon, Fierce Heroines, so go check it out!

The Evil Life: Finding Evil, Chapter 12

Tuesday, July 21st, 2020

Blarf was playing golf with his Knight Corp co-workers at the country club, and it just so happens that Hester was napping under the very same golf course. Now, if that wasn't weird enough, there's been a massive explosion back at the club house.

Congrats, you finished The Evil Life! We hope you enjoyed watching these three misfits find themselves, find a home, and find friendship. Although their story is over, Nils and I have a lot more in store for you...

Next Tuesday (Wednesday! I need an extra day), check back here for a final episode of our Making Evil podcast. Nils and I will recap the final chapters of The Evil Life, do a post-mortem on the whole story, tease our next comic (more on that in a sec), and maybe even discuss another fictional ending that's become infamous since it dropped last year. I'll also have a PDF of Finding Evil for you to download.

And then in two weeks, Nils and I will embark on an outrageous aquatic adventure and we want to have you aboard. Head to Webtoon and subscribe now to KUTE Crew so you'll be ready when our new weekly comic launches on August 4, 2020. The Eisner-nominated Women Write About Comics has our exclusive KUTE Crew announcement, so head there too and get more details! To whet your appetite, here's a teaser...

Pretty rad, right?! Anyway, I think that's all for now. Thanks for following the tale of Hester, Gloom, and Blarf. We appreciate you so much and can't wait to take you on more adventures with our new characters.
