Web Manhwa. Why “Noodles” and what does it eat with?

Web comics are now at their peak and are growing in power. And I would like to tell you about the Web Manhwa, why in common people she is called Lapsha and what is definitely worth reading.
Web Manhwa. Why “Noodles” and what does it eat with?
What are web comics all about? These are works that are distributed, become known, through the Internet for reading on computers and phones. They are sooo rarely published in paper form, you can even count on the fingers. Of the most famous in Russia, one can recall “Simon’s Cat” (cartoon strip from YouTube), “Ice cream and sadness. Cyanide and happiness” (strip collection), “Horror Archive” (full story).

Web Manhwa is the Internet comics from Korean authors, which are read, as they used to in Russia, from left to right. They represent an average of only three to four color pages, but have an unusually long format. That’s why it’s noodles)) Sometimes the translators or the authors themselves “cut” the web manhwa into pages for convenience or creating the desired effect, but you quickly get used to the length features. Unlike manga, I love the web manhwa for its chicly cute color drawing, it’s a pleasure to watch action scenes. Such an unusual approach to the format greatly expands the artist’s capabilities, because you don’t have to worry much about the location of the flames, you draw in order down and that’s all) In fact, everything of course depends on the authors and their style of presentation. If the printed version of the web manhwa is rarely issued, then dramas / TV shows based on motives are shot quite often. Asians are very advanced in creating comic book adaptations with their own specifics. If we take examples from Korean series shot on a web-based manhwa, we can note “Mary was gone all night” and “My neighbor is handsome” (the picture shows a comparison of scenes from the comic book and the series)

Where is it worth starting to get acquainted with the web manhwa? Here everyone can find a genre to their liking, from everyday life to cool science fiction. And, probably, you should start with the most obvious, famous and popular.

Web Manhwa. Why “Noodles” and what does it eat with?
Noblesse / Nobility / Noble
Genres: Mystery, Fantasy, Comedy, Action
It has been published since 2008, once a week, and is divided into seven seasons; 12 volumes have already been printed in Korean. It is one of the ten in terms of viewing in one of the Russian online readers and in first place among the Aeb Manhws. You won’t find so many comments on each page anywhere) You can talk a lot about the plot for a long time, I’m very afraid of throwing slippers in my direction. In short, all the best is mixed here. Beautiful main characters, each with its own character and understandable motives. Comic situations at school, ancient hidden people, secret organizations and cruel experiments on modification of people … and this is only at first glance. The only controversial point is that from the first pages to the last the style of the artist’s drawing changes greatly, but if you take into account how much time the series leaves, this is acceptable. All multivolume so. But if you do not want to go so deep into seven seasons, I want to advise Ability (“Ability”) from the same authors. The story of a simple guy with the ability to regenerate ala Wolverine. And he would live in peace until he did a good deed and met a real monster, well, then it started …

Girl the Wild’s
Genres: Romance, Martial Arts, Comedy, Action
About the muzzled life of a young guy with young children in his arms and about the strange high school in which he falls. And if male characters predominate in The Nobility, here are a bunch of cool girls who are ready to put on shoulder blades. In general, the classic story of how a guy turns from a rag into a super-duper) The only thing that I thought after reading – where is the social service wandering in Korea?)

Not so long ago I came across the The Gamer webcam (“Player”). Something reminded Ability and SAO, but the plot is different. What will happen if real life turns into a game with all the ensuing gadgets of RPGs? Suddenly you start to see your own and someone else’s level of abilities, and your best friend is too strong compared to others? Even if you do not like to play RPGs, it’s interesting to follow the development of GG. And I really had a fun moment about UFO delivery, who orders by mail will understand me)

Darling, only you don’t know! / Dear, Only You Don’t Know!
Six heroines, six stories about the treachery of women in relationships with men, which they are ready to do for the sake of love. I liked that the story is connected with each other and there are many comic situations. I kept thinking to myself: “Yes it happens.”

You can also recommend Tower of God, Cheese in the Trap, Annarasumanara, Supernatural Investigation Department … My reading list is quite large and constantly updated) I really liked webcams for their beautiful color drawing, interesting stories and specific Asian humor.
