So I made the mistake of getting into Lore Olympus towards the end of the summer. A couple of friends had mentioned pulling together a cosplay group and wondered if I’d be interested, and so like a fool I went ahead and started something that my group chat were in love with.
Unsurprisingly it was a hit. I was instantly in love with the comic and devoured all the available chapters in just under 48hrs, but once I was finished I desperately wanted more. For those who haven’t used Webtoon before you can buy early access to chapters using coins, but I’m strictly opposed to in-app purchased and so that wasn’t happening. This is where my love got slightly out of control. Lore Olympus is the weed of Webtoon, the gateway drug into a land filled with weekly updated comics, and there’s just so many fabulous ones to choose from.
I start reading Webtoon before I’ve even made my first cup of tea in the morning, I open up the app to check which comics have been updated and read the chapters instantly. Webtoon is bringing me romance in graphic form, and some of my faves are definitely ones I didn’t expect to love. It’s also been the thing that has been pulling me away from my to be read recently (usually this is a job for fanfiction), so I figured that I may as well get some content out of it. Yep, this is a list post with a reeeally long lead in…anyway here are a few of my fave Webtoons of the moment!
