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!

I thought Pokemon Adventures/Special was good. After reading It's A Hard Life, I realized I was wrong. This is the single best thing I've ever read pokemon-related. I got into it at the Fuji arc I guess, and I still come back here religiously to see if there is any new update. You even inspired me to reset my LeafGreen and do a nuzlock run so I could turn it into a comic too. I actually did it, but didn't start the comic or finish the game yet.

Anyway, what I meant to say is that I really love your work and hope you get better soon, because you deserve it. I look forward to see your new project as well!

Thanks for the great work, keep it up!

Sorry if I made anyone hopeful by making this look like an update, buut I feel that, with all the incredibly nice things you have all said to me, and for being so understanding about my situation, I have to say thank you somehow.

Knowing you still support me has actually taken away a lot of the stress. I means so much to me.

And, also, I wanted to answer some people who asked about my original project - yes I intend to link it for anyone who's interested. It's a little fantasy thing and it should be up soon. I just need to come up with a name for it.

Take care all of you. I love you all.
