Webcomic Profile: It's a hard life


It's a hard life
Robin is ten years old and travels through Kanto with her pokemon to find a place to call home. This is a story about struggle, survival and friendship in a cruel world.


This is a Nuzlocke comic. Contains swearing, violence and death. And sometimes some gore.

Updates are sadly quite irregular but I have no plans on giving up on it anytime soon!

So True
@Fliplogic: This was actually the first Nuzlocke comic I've ever read. I feel empty inside because every other comic I read is never quite as good as this one.

There have been many nuzlockes that have brought me to tears,
But yours is the only one that has ever given me goosebumps.

The rage-induced fighting in this comic in so feral and brutal, yet so emotionally gripping and relatable (most notably Pucks reaction when Kato was bitten in the neck, and when Jojjo eviscerated that ekans for killing Regina).

This is, without a doubt, my favorite nuzlocke comic, even above Petty's and Ky-nim's (the two comics that I consider to be the quintessential nuzlocke runs)

I tell people to avoid reading this comic if they have just started reading nuzlockes - not because it is violent, but because once you've read this one, you just won't be able to find another nuzlocke that can truly compare.

Robin is a she
@It is a he or she?:
Robin is a she even if she looks masculine in the face it says in the characters tab robin is a she, but I understand how you got confused
