Are you a comic book or manga fan? Do you love reading manga and waiting for the next volume to come out? Look no farther! Webtoons are great for your comic book and manga pleasure. Webtoon, or in Korean "manhwa," is an online comic where readers can read and get updates on the latest chapters. It is similar to morning newspaper comics and Shounen Jump Magazine, but formatted for the web. Webtoon comics have many great stories from fantasy to slice of life for everyone (not to mention the art because it is fantastic). Since you’re already here on the internet, come and look through some awesome webtoon comics.

Noblesse by Jeho Son and Kwangsu Lee


One of the most popular webtoons, "Noblesse" is about protagonist Rai who wakes up from an 820 year long sleep and starts a new life as a high school student. His peaceful return to the world changes when gruesome murders committed by a group called "Unions" begin. This vampire webtoon is compelling with its intense story and impressive artwork by Jeho Son and Kwangsu Lee. "Noblesse" is so popular it has an anime version of the series.

Tower of God by SIU


"What do you desire?" Maybe this webtoon "Tower of God" by SIU (Lee Jong-Hui).

In order for him to see his friend again, Twenty-Fifth Baam must face challenges within the tower.

Winter Woods by Cosmos and Van Ji


Want a Frankenstein character who is lovable to root for? Cosmos and Van Ji's "Winter Woods" is the webtoon for you! "Winter Woods" takes an interesting look at the Frankenstein story.

"Cheese In The Trap" delights readers with simple yet engaging characters and plot. The webtoon has been made into a TV show but if you want to read the comic first, start with the prologue here!

ORANGE MARMALADE by Seokwoo


Another great vampire story with a different tone! "Orange Marmalade" is about Baek Ma Ri, a vampire in modern day society where people are no longer afraid of vampires but still discriminate against them. Ma Ri is a quiet student disguising her vampire identity as a human until she meets her school's popular boy Jaemin, who hates vampires. This love story not only has lovable characters, but also commentaries on discrimination in today's society. Like "Cheese In the Trap," the webtoon comic also has a TV version. However, if you want to read to the comic first, check out the prologue here!

Girls of the Wild's by Hun and Zhena


Picture this: girls going to school as MFA fighters. Instead of MFA, Hun and Zhena's "Girls of the Wild's" follows a group of girls attending "Wild's High School, an all girls educational institute specializing in MMA, has a very special freshman enrolling this year." Jaegu, who fears women after being abandoned by his mother, will learn about the girls through this action-packed series.

DICE by Hyuseok Yun

Welcome to a twisted story of "DICE," where life can be changed with a die. Hyuseok Yun's "DICE" follows protagonist Dongtae who gets bullied in school for being everyone's "dog." One day Dongtae meets a mysterious transfer student, Taebin, and stumbles on a unique die that changes colors. Dongtae rolls the die and finds himself in the world of DICE. It changes his life forever. This webtoon challenges desires of artificial expectations such as looks and popularity. If you want to roll with this webtoon comic, check out the prologue here!

Snailogy by Snailords



A fun slice of life by user Snailords! "Snailogy" follows the life of the creator that ranges from being an artist to pronouns/gender (he/his/him). Snailord uses fantasy and humor to tell his life stories, which makes him unique and almost YouTube relatable. Snailord also writes and draws "Nightmare Factory", which is a horror-fantasy story for his original characters. If you want to read his slice of life instead, check out one of the chapters here!

Smile Brush by Waroo


Another great slice of life comic! This LINE comic is by the talented Waroo. Like "Snailogy," "Smile Brush" follows the creator's life in Seoul. Unlike Snailord's fantasy-mixed life, Waroo uses a simple narrative but gives each reader so many feels based on his comics. He also did a similar comic called "Smile Brush: My Old Pictures," which like the title follows Waroo from his early years before going into comics. His webtoon comics are heartwarming and sometimes, very humorous. If you and your feels are ready to read "Smile Brush," check out the first chapter here!

Annarasumanara by Ilkwon Ha


We have come down to one last webtoon comic! Ilkwon Ha's "Annarasumanra" follows Yun Ai who wanted to be a magician but started to lose faith in magic as she entered high school and fell in debt after her father left her and her sister. When Yun Ai meets a mysterious magician, she slowly starts to believe in magic. "Annarasumanra" mixes abstract art and manhwa style, which makes it more intriguing to read and easy to appreciate the craft Illkwon Ha does in the comic. If you want to believe in his magic, check out the first chapter here!

The Stories of Those around Me by Omyo, Dr. Frost by JongBeom Lee, Flow by Honey B, The God Of High School by Yongje Park, and Blue Chair by Shen

College As Told By Junie B. Jones

A tribute to the beloved author Barbara Parks.

The Junie B. Jones series was a big part of my childhood. They were the first chapter books I ever read. On car trips, my mother would entertain my sister and me by purchasing a new Junie B. Jones book and reading it to us. My favorite part about the books then, and still, are how funny they are. Junie B. takes things very literally, and her (mis)adventures are hilarious. A lot of children's authors tend to write for children and parents in their books to keep the attention of both parties. Barbara Park, the author of the Junie B. Jones series, did just that. This is why many things Junie B. said in Kindergarten could be applied to her experiences in college, as shown here.

When Junie B. introduces herself hundreds of times during orientation week:

“My name is Junie B. Jones. The B stands for Beatrice. Except I don't like Beatrice. I just like B and that's all." (Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, p. 1)

When she goes to her first college career fair:

"Yeah, only guess what? I never even heard of that dumb word careers before. And so I won't know what the heck we're talking about." (Junie B. Jones and her Big Fat Mouth, p. 2)

When she thinks people in class are gossiping about her:

“They whispered to each other for a real long time. Also, they kept looking at me. And they wouldn't even stop." (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 66)

When someone asks her about the library:

“It's where the books are. And guess what? Books are my very favorite things in the whole world!" (Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, p. 27)

When she doesn't know what she's eating at the caf:

“I peeked inside the bread. I stared and stared for a real long time. 'Cause I didn't actually recognize the meat, that's why. Finally, I ate it anyway. It was tasty...whatever it was." (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 66)

When she gets bored during class:

“I drew a sausage patty on my arm. Only that wasn't even an assignment." (Junie B. Jones Loves Handsome Warren, p. 18)

When she considers dropping out:

“Maybe someday I will just be the Boss of Cookies instead!" (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 76)

When her friends invite her to the lake for Labor Day:

“GOOD NEWS! I CAN COME TO THE LAKE WITH YOU, I BELIEVE!" (Junie B. Jones Smells Something Fishy, p. 17)

When her professor never enters grades on time:

“I rolled my eyes way up to the sky." (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 38)

When her friends won't stop poking her on Facebook:


“Do not poke me one more time, and I mean it." (Junie B. Jones Smells Something Fishy, p. 7)

When she finds out she got a bad test grade:

“Then my eyes got a little bit wet. I wasn't crying, though." (Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, p. 17)

When she isn't allowed to have a pet on campus but really wants one:

“FISH STICK! I NAMED HIM FISH STICK BECAUSE HE'S A FISH STICK, OF COURSE!" (Junie B. Jones Smells Something Fishy, p. 59)

When she has to walk across campus in the dark:

“There's no such thing as monsters. There's no such thing as monsters." (Junie B. Jones Has a Monster Under Her Bed, p. 12)

When her boyfriend breaks her heart:

“I am a bachelorette. A bachelorette is when your boyfriend named Ricardo dumps you at recess. Only I wasn't actually expecting that terrible trouble." (Junie B. Jones Is (almost) a Flower Girl, p. 1)

When she paints her first canvas:


"And painting is the funnest thing I love!" (Junie B. Jones and her Big Fat Mouth, p. 61)

When her sorority takes stacked pictures:

“The biggie kids stand in the back. And the shortie kids stand in the front. I am a shortie kid. Only that is nothing to be ashamed of." (Junie B. Jones Has a Monster Under Her Bed, p. 7)

When she's had enough of the caf's food:

“Want to bake a lemon pie? A lemon pie would be fun, don't you think?" (Junie B. Jones Has a Monster Under Her Bed p. 34)

When she forgets about an exam:

“Speechless is when your mouth can't speech." (Junie B. Jones Loves Handsome Warren, p. 54)

When she finds out she has enough credits to graduate:

“A DIPLOMA! A DIPLOMA! I WILL LOVE A DIPLOMA!" (Junie B. Jones is a Graduation Girl p. 6)

When she gets home from college:

"IT'S ME! IT'S JUNIE B. JONES! I'M HOME FROM MY SCHOOL!" (Junie B. Jones and some Sneaky Peaky Spying p. 20)
