Line Webtoon is a free website and app that allows authors and artists to share their creativity through comics and manga. The authors either draw their own art or work with other artists to create their stories. Readers have a wide variety of genres to read, including comedy, fantasy, romance and much more. Some of the stories have longer chapters with more to the story added each update, but some have shorter chapters for those seeking a quick read. Readers can show their opinion by rating the Webtoons and leaving comments. They can also subscribe to a Webtoon for easier access to it and receive notifications when it updates. Some Webtoons update weekly, which is something to look forward to at the end of a long day. Readers can see the comics and their
