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.

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!

The most important thing to us all is that you keep as happy and healthy as you can be, that way you're bound to keep doing stuff. It's A Hard Life is the ultimate Pokemon story in my opinion, it's what I'm ready to hope every later thing strives to live up to, and it's what I'll always be comparing my new things to, comics or Pokemon or whatever. Thanks!

If I can wait over a year for a Homestuck update, I can wait for your relatively short hiatuses :P

Jokes aside, you're the kind of artist that updates in batches, and you also do this with colored pencil and such. Of course it's going to take time. But it's always quality comics you post so don't feel too bad that it takes some time, you know? :P

There are a lot of comments, all well deserved. If you get around to reading all of them i commend you for being that dedicated to your fanbase. I began to suspect you had depression about halfway through my read of this. It just kind of added up, sporadic updates, uncanny empathy and emotion, perhaps some perfectionism. Depression sucks but in someways it is strength. I think your comic became serious because deep down you have a message that needs to get out. For not having a script your story is pretty damn amazing. I used to think nuzlockes were the dumbest things before i read this. But this transcends nuzlockism. This comic is already immersed in originality. It's almost like the pokemon thing is just a mask. I mean... Pokemon don't talk. But these ones do because you have created these stand alone characters. If you do come back to finish this, don't do it for the fans. Don't do it for yourself. Do it because the characters are screaming to be developed. Because the morally ambiguous themes scream out to the universe for resolution. This is freaking literature trapped in a nuzlocke's body. You are a great artist, i failed my watercolor class, but i know what good watercolor is. Can't wait for the new comic. You have a fan in me. Really though, this comic has inspired me. I cross my fingers before i start my comic everyday hoping i can develope my characters like this. You are a hero.

Life always changes, and our motivations do with it. Everybody needs a change of pace sometimes. I'd hate for you to just push through a comic when you don't have the heart to put into it at the moment.

I just want to say that It's A Hard Life has been and is my favorite comic ever, and I say that not because it's the best or the most well written, etc. But because I enjoyed it more than any other comic I've ever read. It's been such a great experience getting to follow the updates and see the characters and story develop. I'm honored I got to be a part of it, and I'm so grateful that you shared this wonderful story with us.

I'll be looking forward to whatever you do in the future, and I'll hope that someday this comic calls you back to continue it. Until then, good luck, and I'm eager to see what else you're working on, and I'll always keep this page bookmarked!

P.S. I'd still buy the heck out of a printed version of this, even if the story ended here with Robin in prison and the team living ever after in the Safari Zone.

reply

I know your avatar is Giovanni and that means (maybe) that you're male.

But since the beggining I thought Robin was like a impersonation of yourself. And I was already used to see you, the real artist behind the comic, as a female that looked like her.

Stupid me.
