4. Of Dark Lords and Cabbages by Liyanya (@Liyanya_) on WEBTOON
A colorful urban fantasy, Of Dark Lords and Cabbages is filled with heroes, villains, epic magic, exciting action, and romance that defies the odds. A spellbinding coming-of-age story that blends slice-of-life with fantasy, ODLAC is as captivating as it is comedic and touching.
Gendry Tenebris is in a long-term relationship with his childhood best friend, Seyren Longhao and they are madly in love. There are only two tiny problems with their relationship; they still haven't kissed and Gen happens to be a Dark Lord in training despised by everyone he meets. Worse still, Seyren is a heroborn on the side of justice. He's beloved by all and everyone around them expects the loud-mouthed hero to topple the prince's regime before it can even come to fruition.
This anime-influenced webcomic features great laughs, colorful illustrations, and exceptional world-building. ODLAC's brilliant mixture of genres, striking illustrations, and moving narrative will quickly become your next addiction. The midseason finale just dropped (and it's amazing!) so now is the perfect time to start this WEBTOON Original!
5. Witch of Winteria by Vanella (@itsvanella) on WEBTOON/Tapas
A charming and magical series currently available on WEBTOON Canvas and Tapas, this colorful tale of witches and fantasy is creator Vanella's first webcomic series!
Witch of Winteria follows Abigail as she journeys to the city of Winteria on a quest to fulfill her dream of becoming a witcher. The only issue is that she’s heavily cursed and has no idea how to rid herself of what ails her!
The series is still in its initial stages, but promises a spellbinding tale and a wonderful girls' love romance in the coming episodes. The striking pastel palette and whimsical atmosphere is both eye-catching and cozy. This webcomic updates irregularly, so it’s definitely worth bookmarking so you don’t miss an update! This is a great opportunity to watch a young creator grow their craft and support her journey in the process.
