As if you needed another app to occupy asinine amounts of time…but I promise this one is well worth it.
Webtoon is a free app you can download for your phone or other mobile device. Once you log in, creating a free account, you can read and binge all sorts of amazing webcomics that legit leave you wanting more.
I first found out about Webtoon, when Lore Olympus first started popping up on my Twitter feed – so I think, about two/two and a half years ago. Like most people who discover Lore Olympus, I binged what was available and then spiraled into this desperate need for more. From there, I branched out and started reading all sorts of comics.
While my list of comics I read is very long, this post is just going to be a handful of favorites! These are definitely comics that I stay * regularly * up to date with. I usually binge all available episodes, and then won’t touch the app for a while. That way when I finally decide to open it again, I have plenty of episodes to binge. It’s probably not the healthiest of ways to consume these stories, because I’m always left with that desperate need for more, but it works for me!
But without further ado, let’s jump into these recs, and I promise you won’t be disappointed!
