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. If you like badass vampires and great characters, suck up the first chapter here (pun intended)!

Tower of God by SIU


"What do you desire?" Maybe this webtoon "Tower of God" by SIU (Lee Jong-Hui). The story follows a boy named Twenty-Fifth Baam, who gets trapped in a mysterious tower after getting separated from his friend. In order for him to see his friend again, Twenty-Fifth Baam must face challenges within the tower. SIU impresses his readers with strong characters and action, which make "Tower of God" a successful webtoon today. Want to start "Tower of God"? Check out the prologue here!

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. In the prologue, it begins with a story of a scientist who wants his own family. The scientist digs up various body parts from corpses and assembles a successful "son." His last creation 1001, who becomes the story's protagonist of the same name, comes alive and begins his journey to find his heart. "Winter Woods" tells a strong and unique story of being alive.

Cheese in the Trap by Soonkki


This romantic comedy follows Seol Hong, a student who returns to college after a long break. When she returns, Seoul Hong meets Jung Yu, who is known in college as "Mr. Perfect," and her life starts to change for the worst. "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. "Girls Of the Wild's" brings out powerful and badass female characters who you want to root for throughout the series. If you want to read the comic now, check out the prologue here!

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!

Honorable Mentions:

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

To the guy that shot my brother...

To the guy that shot my brother,

On January 9, 2019 my families entire life changed with one phone call. The phone call that my little brother had been shot in the face, no other details. We didn't need any other details. The woman on the phone who called us in full panic told us where he was so we went, as soon as possible. I don't think it helped that not even 10 min prior I talked to Zach on the phone.. kind of irritated with him, and the ONE TIME I didn't say 'I love you' as we hung up. Could've been the last time we ever spoke.. I remember pulling up to the hospital thinking 'this can't be real' 'it's not our Zach' 'this is just a dream Sarah, WAKE UP' I'd close my eyes really tight just to open them, I was still in the hospital emergency parking lot. I could still hear the ambulance sirens coming. It was all real.

The day our life's changed was definitely a test of faith. A test of how strong we were, as a family. I sat in that waiting room ready to see the damage that has been done to my sweet baby brother. Because at that point we had no idea how lucky he got. That glimpse of seeing Zach will haunt me forever. How helpless I felt in that exact moment frequently wakes me up from these horrific dreams I've been having ever since that day. That is a moment burned into my me and families brain forever.

You always hear about these things in the movies or on the news, a house being shot up, someone shooting another innocent person, not to care if they died on your watch. But we found ourselves on the news.. We have been confined to the hospital since that day. Running on barely any sleep, taking shifts of sleep so we don't make ourselves sick taking care of Zach. Watching him suffer. Undergoing surgeries, to repair the damage you did.

Before I proceed let me tell you a little something about the man you shot.

Zachary Keith Wright. A blonde hair blue eyed boy. Who could potentially be the most annoying human on the planet (possibly coming from his sister). A man who loves his God first, loves his family second. Perfect by no means, but almost perfect to me. A 19 year old who was to graduate high school this month. After graduation he was prepping to leave for Marine boot camp in the summer.. being in the military has been Zach's dream since he could talk. Literally. Running around, playing war with underwear on our heads, and finger guns. Some would say we looked like natural born assassins.. growing up he has been a country boy. Let me tell ya country to the core. He loves this country like he loves his family. He believes in helping people, taking charge in what's right, and never leaving a brother behind. He's lived by that his whole life. Until now....

The day you shot him. The day not only did you change my brothers life, you changed his families life too. The day you almost ripped my brother out of this world... for what? A misunderstanding? Because you've let something take ahold of your life that you can't let go you're willing to kill someone innocent over? Luckily for him, his guardian angels were protecting him in your time of cowardice. There were 3 times that day he should've died, the time you shot him, the time you tried to shoot him again as he stared you directly in the face, (even tho he couldn't talk I know you could read his eyes, and he still intimidated you. That's why you tried to pull the trigger again) and the time he was running out of the house. But he lived. A man who was shot in the face, didn't lay there helpless, didn't scream in agony. That MAN walked to the neighbors to get help. Why? Because he's a MAN, and because he's on this earth for a reason.

It's gonna sound a little strange not only to you, but the audience who is reading this. I must say thank you. Even in this situation, this was the best outcome we could get. He gets to live. He will make a full recovery. He will graduate. And he will go off into the Marines. You united my family together. Closer than ever. Thank you. You tested our faith and brought us closer to our God. Thank you. Because of your moment of weakness, you showed us what prayer could do. Heal anything. Thank you. This was a bump in the road, and a helluva way to kick off our year of 2019. But here we are.. all laying in the hospital. I'm looking around as mom is sleeping in her recliner chair exhasted but still here, Zach his awake playing his xbox all hooked up to machines, fighting to heal and get better. And of course I'm writing this letter to you.

See you in trial,

From the girl whose brother you shot.
