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!

A Thought
@spazmccoy: That she was framed does not erase the countless deaths she's caused since then. Perhaps she believes she is too far in to be seen as anything but a murderer? Perhaps her faith in people is terribly low, seeing as she was betrayed by her mother (for abandoning her, and sending her out into a world that has shown her further loss).

I think events so far has made Robin mistrust most everyone besides her pokemon, and those who show her great kindness first (Mr. Fuji, iirc. She was rearing to kill him before he made his case and gave her shelter.)

But, Lt. Surge doesn't seem totally unreasonable. I have a feeling that he will be a recurring character, and have more words with Robin later on. Hopefully to some good effect.

Two things. Love the comic. Keep up the good work. I do not mind the wait.

To the guy who thinks four years is a long time to spend telling a story: I don't think you understand the point of a webcomic. There are webcomics that have been going for far longer than 4 years. Kevin and Kell has been goin for a decade. 4 years is not a long time. Do you need links to comics that started in 2000-2003? Or will you just show some restraint in your comments?

Well written
I really enjoyed reading this comic but one thing that lingered in the back of my mind the whole time was: Why didn't Robin ever try to explain that she was innocent? If she had explained she was framed by Gary when Surge was talking to her, I bet he would have listened. But that's just me! I'm not the writer! Again, well written and a lot of fun to read!

I found this web series through reddit and i'm really glad I stuck around for the ride. In the beginning I thought this was a troll comic with some of the language and facial expressions, but what I thought was a dark joke turned out to be really heartwrenching, excellent job and I love what you've done with the personalities and development. You are incredible.

Great read
I started reading this comic a couple of days ago and I've just caught up. There are times when I forget that this is a Nuzlocke comic and instead I think it's just a regular Pokemon comic.
