WebToons to spark an addiction

Jordan Parcell

WebToon. A void where I spend way too much time. 


If you don’t know what it is, it’s an app where people can post short graphic novels/comics that you can scroll through. There are several different categories of WebToons, as well as many different art styles. 

Most people have a preferred genre or art style, but my taste is sort of all over the place. Here are three of my top five WebToons. I’d highly recommend that you check them out if you’re interested in reading some.


  • Lore Olympus – This is definitely my favorite WebToon that I’ve read so far. Everything from the storyline to the art style is absolutely immaculate. It’s based on the Greek myth of Persephone and Hades. It puts a modern spin on one of my favorite Greek myths, so of course I love it. It’s great for any ex-Percy Jackson nerds.
  • True Beauty – This WebToon was originally in Korean, and is set in Korea. It’s a very complicated love triangle trope, which is probably very familiar to anybody who had a Wattpad phase in middle school. I really enjoy the art style on this one, and it even has its own Korean TV show.
  • Books of Adam – This one is a lot less of a commitment in my opinion. It’s a collection of stand alone comic strips by a cartoonist that is very popular on Instagram. I really enjoy the art style as well as the comics themselves. They’re very funny, and this is definitely a nice way to ease yourself into reading WebToons without the commitment of a definable plot line.
