Were you looking for the specific brand of webtoons from the site called WEBTOON?

Webtoons (Korean: 웹툰) are a type of digital comic (sometimes called a mobile comic or web comic) that originated in South Korea usually meant to be read on computers and smartphones. Unlike their print counterparts, most webtoons are designed and published to be read vertically, usually from top to bottom and left to right.

While webtoons were mostly unknown outside of Korea during their inception, there has been a surge in popularity internationally thanks in great part to the rise in popularity of manhwa and the fact that most manhwa are initially or solely released as webtoons. In the country, as digital manhwa have emerged as a popular medium, print publication of manhwa has decreased. The amount of material published in webtoon form has now reached an equal amount as that published offline.

Web manga[]

See Web manga section of Manga article...

Webmanga or web manga are Japan's answer to webtoons, but are more often similar to traditional manga that are just published on mobile app or web sites, but still mostly monochrome and read like a traditional manga in digital reader form, so still read right to left.
