Hello fam! I know this post might not be the usual type of post I put up. However my life has been such a mess I needed something to unwind with, and without putting any effort in to it.
So I discovered Webtoon, which is a free app in the app store so you can get your hands on it easily.
My discover wasn’t the app itself, even though I was pretty surprised finding it, it was what I have found in it.
I found three comics on Webtoon that may help you unwind or just the distract you from your current problem so you could think straight afterwards. It does help if you wanna see things more clearly.
Side note : your mental health matters so don’t forget to relax in between situations. It is hard but possible.
This post might contain spoilers however I try to be as spoiler-free as possible.
So let’s continue… Shall we?
Lore Olympus: is a Web comic played in the Greek mythology. However there’s a twist. They are in today’s fashion (aka 21st century clothing) whereas the humans (mortals) are in still in early centuries (propably before Christ).
The artist chose one of the best legend to put in the main focus – in my opinion – which is the relationship between Hades and Persephone. I have to tell you this futuristic twist on their clothes and objects are pretty cool and the art style is pretty dope too. I recommend you to read it or at least give it a chance.
It is a romantic type of comic, which I am not really into usually, however this novel influenced me to look around a bit further.
This led me to…
Devil Is A Handsome Man : is also a romantic novel however it is full of mysteries and unclear scenes that keeps you there because you wanna know what exactly happened.
However, at first, I thought it was one of many web comics… But I refused to stop reading so I kept reading.. And thank god I did because it became so exciting after chapter 5 or 4 so I just couldn’t stop I finished this comic within a day (just like the previous comic).
It is also in the romance category however I think it also should be classed as fantasy, mystery or detective category because there are a lot of dots to connect.
If you a person who likes strong female characters as a main character I recommend this for you. Our main character, Xo – short for Xolia – is trying to find out who she really is and who exactly was she.
After this I wanted something different, no too much but different enough to not finish it within a day…
… And I found…
Love Advice from The Great Duke of Hell
I know this is a mouthful but this one leans into more of fantasy and comedy category. It is still romantic but in a different way.
It is a notice me sempai situation but it’s a guy “chasing” after his crush. Our main character is into occult for this reason and one day he successfully summons the Great Duke of Hell, which I can tell, not many mortals are capable of.
Without going into much detail and spoiling it for you (the title is enough spoiler imo), there are going to be scenes where you may feel awkward, or find it funny or just shake your head. It’s not exactly a comedy piece but I’ll admit it can be funny at times.
I love Web comics because I know it is hard drawing digitally and looking at the different between a newer chapter and an older chapter, seeing how much their art style improved over making the chapters feels me with joy and it is fascinating to see.
These people have a particular style that also pulled me in on reading there work. For me, it takes more than just a great art style to pull me in on the story. You won’t regret reading these however these are not for everyone.
Note: I am not sponsored by any of these artist who created these comics. Nor is Webtoon.
