The Evil Life: Growing Evil, Chapter 5

Tuesday, August 13th, 2019

Let's catch up with our grumpy science-obsessed prince, shall we? When we first met Gloom he was arguing with his parents about his royal obligations to magic and world domination. Now, as we rejoin the regal researcher, he's had a chance to find his own identity outside the kingdom of Monakwa. But is he truly living his dream or swimming against the stream?

Awww, poor prince. He's so not ready for the soul-crushing job hunt in Megaville! But I'm glad he stood up for himself, even if he was a spoiled brat while he was doing it.

Anyway, how @#$%ing cool is Nils-Petter Norlin's astral plane, amiright?!? I just absolutely love it. The crazy colors, the swirling objects, the distorted anatomy... it's so rad! I've been stoked to shared this chapter for so long because I couldn't wait for everyone to check out his brilliant vision of a magical family phone call.

I'm in Paris right now as I post this chapter, which isn't part of my normal routine. It's my first time here but I had to make sure that this chapter was posted when I promised you it would be there! C'est vrai!

Oh, one last thing... don't forget to check out the BUN&TEA Anthology on Kickstarter! My comic Lazer Bird is part of it and the campaign wraps up in a few days, so back it now if you wanna get on board.

Alright, that's it for now. Get ready to check up on Hester in two weeks when she tries to get to the bottom of her marmot mutation. See you then!

The Evil Life: Growing Evil, Chapter 4

This time we're heading back to Megaville to catch up with Hester Herman, who we met in our very first chapter of The Evil Life! She's aged a bit since we last saw her, but Hester's love for protecting nature is just as strong as ever.

Wow, I just feel like, I dunno, maybe I'm wrong about this but I think Hester might fail this class...? Something tells me she's getting an F on every assignment from here on out. Speaking of class, I gotta give a shoutout to my classy niece Claudine A.K.A. Dini who was one of my earliest test readers for The Evil Life and that's why I named Hester's friend in this chapter after her!

So maybe you've already seen this or maybe you haven't, but Nils and I recorded a podcast together last week; it's called Making Evil episode 1. We spoke about the process of putting together The Evil Life, which began eight years ago! We'll be recording a new episode every few chapters, so our next one should drop in September.

Speaking of podcasts, I also caught up with my old buds, the Evil Geeks, in a podcast interview that's out today. We spoke about The Evil Life, my upcoming Lazer Bird comic that's part of the BUN&TEA Anthology on Kickstarter, and tons more.

I'll see you in two weeks with another chapter of The Evil Life, when we'll revisit Prince Gloom to find out where his globe-hopping scientific research has taken him!

The Evil Life: Growing Evil, Chapter 3

Tuesday, July 16th, 2019

First we took you to the serene suburbs of North Megaville, then we were off to a secret island nation called Monakwa, and now it's... the stars! Nils-Petter Norlin and I are thrilled to introduce you to the final main character of our lead trio, even if that character is just a sleepy lil baby alien right now and doesn't even have a name yet.

It's time to explore the cosmos! Click an image to open the webcomic in fullscreen, and then scroll or swipe through the entire chapter.

Hi, Valoronia... bye, Valoronia! Oh well, it seemed like a nice enough place, right? Frankly, I love Nils-Petter Norlin's vision for this weird planet so much that I'm awfully sad to see it go every single time I read this chapter (and lemme tell ya... I've read this chapter more times than I can count).

As always, don't forget that you can follow The Evil Life on Webtoon too. We do things a little different over there with formatting and layout, so if you enjoyed this chapter here then you might also enjoy reading Chapter 3 on Webtoon as well.

Last time I posted an entry of this webcomic, I was driving across America. It was crazy, it was fun, and it was intense. This time I'm back home in SoCal, and now the rest of the world is about to converge 100 miles south of me for San Diego Comic-Con this week. I'll be there too, driving my wife Rosie to and from the convention. Maybe I'll even pop in to catch one of her panels or visit my friends who're exhibiting there. If you wanna say hi, tweet me and we'll see if we can make it happen.

I'll be back here in two weeks with more of The Evil Life, and next time we're returning to Megaville to check up on Hester as she enters her college years!
