5 Best Webcomics You Should Read on Webtoon

Webcomics are comics that are published online. There are now apps where you can read them for free and even can publish their own comic. One of the most popular apps is Line Webtoon, the biggest webcomic platform.

The first webcomic was Witches and Stitches by Eric Millikin where he published on CompuServe, an online service in 1985. After that year, more webcomics started being published.

One of the most influential webcomics is Homestuck, a seven-year webcomic that started off as a story about a computer game that a boy and his friends would play and then to an epic adventure. It defied storytelling and gets the fandom into a discussion and what everything means creating an experience for the community.

Here are the top 5 webcomics you should read on Webtoon.
