Mangas, Japanese comic books, have always been very popular. This is most obvious in retailers like Barnes & Noble, with an extensive collection for sale in store and online. Recently hitting the shelves are manhwas, the Korean equivalent of a manga. I refer to manhwa as manga’s sibling since they are both the equivalent of a comic book in their country and reach the audience through visual reading. They look the same but read differently; mangas read right to left in black in white, while manhwas read left to right in spectacular colors. They specialize in the romance genre and have gained a lot of attention from girls and young women who eagerly wait for releases (You can include myself in that mix!). Most manhwas are meant to be read on a computer or mobile phones, some can be classified under webtoons, instead of a printed form. That has begun to change as both manga (One Piece, My Hero Academia, Demon Slayer) and manhwas (The God of Highschool, Solo Leveling, Lookism) are starting to share the shelves. I personally have gotten into manhwas and read them daily since it’s easily accessible on my phone. However, I’m also a big fan of manga! Whatever your reading and however you’re reading it, I hope you are enjoying it and appreciating the artist’s hard work.
