The Evil Life: Growing Evil, Chapter 7

Tuesday, September 10th, 2019

It's been so long since we met our baby alien, hasn't it? Well, the wait is over because we're about to see what things have been like for the extraterrestrial tyke since their home planet exploded and turned them into an intergalactic orphan.

Awwww, shucks! Of all the farms on all the planets, this lil alien had to land on the one farm where the farmers would rather put a baby in a barn than a bedroom. Welcome home, I guess?

Nils and I released a new podcast last week. Thought I'd let you know just in case you missed it. We talk all about Chapters 4-6 of The Evil Life plus we do lots of reminiscing and we even debate the direction of the new Star Wars trilogy.

It looks like our next chapter of this weird webcomic is going to feature not one but two (count 'em!) of our main characters as we catch up with both Hester and Gloom as they try to forge favorable futures for themselves. See you then!

The Evil Life: Growing Evil, Chapter 6

Tuesday, August 27th, 2019

While our science-loving prince is preparing for a job hunt and our baby alien is streaking through space, Hester Herman is struggling with the changes she's experienced after getting bitten by a radioactive marmot. Let's check back in on Hester and see how that's going for her!

I love the way Nils draws that radioactive marmot! It's so rad, with all of those cracks and crags. My nephew Teddy liked it too when he saw me working on this webcomic last week, so I read him Hester's chapters. And when it was time for bed later that night, he requested a "radioactive meep" bedtime story! The ultimate compliment.

That was in London, where we were visiting family for a couple of weeks. Rosie and I flew home to Cali one week ago, but then we got an email when we landed that our apartment was being fumigated! So it was a pretty unusual and unexpected time.

Fingers crossed that the next two weeks will be more chilled out! I'll see you back here in two weeks with a short but (bitter)sweet chapter about our baby alien buddy.

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!
