Welcome to Nuzlocke on Ice!

What is this comic about?

Roland Sheppard, a laid-back 20 year old from Dewford in the Hoenn region, has just passed his trainer certification in Pallet along with his classmates. Now he and the others can pursue the League challenge in Kanto, but things aren't as easy as he thinks they will be, especially when he announces to his soon-to-be rival that he will only be using Water-type Pokemon. (And blue Pokemon. But same thing, right?) [A comic of my run with Pokemon LeafGreen: Hard Mode, or rather, a (sort of) monotype Nuzlocke challenge]

Can I read this comic anywhere else?

Currently, NOICE is up on:

In FireRed/LeafGreen, the reward for defeating Brock is P1400:


$1400 seemed like a lot for a first gym battle, even for the increased fees and prices for NOICE's world, so I knocked off a zero when converting it to U.S. dollars. It's still quite a bit of money when you've got only a couple of bucks.

A little late, but it was Nuzlocke on Ice's 2nd anniversary two weeks ago! I wanted to redraw this panel all the way back from Chapter 2, which is still one of my favorite scenes in the comic. Thank you to everyone for reading and supporting NOICE, and here's to another great year! ; v ;
