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!

Really interested into what's going to happen next, SO MUCH PLOT!!!!

Also, can they even be caught in the safari zone? They all have a trainer and Pokeball (which they are carrying around with them). Well, I guess its up to author creativity at this point.

Cant wait for next update, love your work! <3

I'd like to see how Robin's doing and if she plans to rebuff any of Gary's ridiculous claims. He's the main reason she'd been forced into her 'criminal' position. I really hope she finally stands up for herself even if it doesn't pan out. Gary needs to pay for his misdirected anger (because honestly that's where all this originated from).

You make Gary seem older than Robin even though he's the same age. I like that you give him character. He's someone I did not originally expect to become more of a 'villain.'

Discovered this comic on another website and I love how it tugs at my heartstrings. I'll checking every now and then to read it on here. Great stuff, bravo, and keep going!

Hey @Qlock, have you already passed the rest of the comic to someone you trust? Just cuz, you know, so we all don't get orphanized case you die before posting it all..

I've been coming regularly to your comic since 2012. You are such a creative artist/writer. The plot is as gripping as the characters as the watercolors, and that's more than I would say for many of the published comics/BD out there. It's a beautiful project and I enjoy it so hard. Thanks so much and keep updating with you have time. Kisses from France!

@Derpus: I will never forgive Pluto for what he has done. Kato's depression, death of swann and jojjo, Robin being arrested. And all those things together caused this, the darkest part of this story.

@PercussionFish: I feel sad about kato, jojjo was like a mother to him, she taught him to fight, to be brave, to get over his fears... But now she's dead and Robin is no longer with them... Such a big loss must have destroyed him on the inside he is extremely depressed now. All I hope is that he can find a way to manage all that and get over it but of course, it will take a really long time.
