Webtoons is one of my new obsessions. If you don’t know what they are, I will enlighten you. Webtoons is one of the many apps/websites where you can read different comics/manga by a variety of artists. The subject matter is vast, from romance to horror, fantasy to sci-fi, slice-of-life to drama. You can subscribe (for free) to get updates when the next ‘chapter’ is out. I am obsessed with several and here are the completed horror ones for a great binge read to keep you up all night.
- 10. DEEP
- By TOWOO & Tae Heon Kim
‘Families that went missing decades ago…started to resurface.‘
Dead bodies wash up on the beach only to start moving a few hours later. Is this really the family reunion you’ve dreamed of? With 45 Episodes it’s a short read but definitely creepy. I’ll be staying our of the water for a long time.
9. Dead Days
‘Beginning on the 4th day after a zombie virus broke out, this is a story about the will to live, human instincts and our selfish desires. A thrilling tale about the survivors of a zombie apocalypse.‘
What would you do if you woke up one day and your Mom was a zombie & the world around you collapsed?
8. The Red Book
‘The more you think about it, the scarier it gets. This is about things that are everywhere and nowhere.‘
Another series of short stories making you question what you really saw. Don’t think to hard about the stories you read. You won’t like the end result.
7. Have You Any Fear
‘A seasonal anthology exploring the sinister nature of classic children’s nursery rhymes.‘
A collection of tales that take a chilling twist on some classic stories. The answer is yes, I definitely have fear! Sleep tight, don’t let the monsters bite.
By Jorge Jaramillio
‘Web graphic novel about a larger than life love story. Every week a new page will be unveiled.‘
A disturbing tale of one man’s obsession and where that leads him. Remember, not everything is as it seems.
‘Prepare to swallow your screams. This horror anthology is loaded with special effects for maximum scare–just in time for Halloween.‘
A special series of horror stories including audio cues and even some animation. 10/10 Jump Scares, 10/10 Nightmares.
4. Unknown Caller
‘Unknown Caller is an app-exclusive horror anthology with stories from renowned Korean creators who have been scaring audiences for years. These stories use augmented reality to unveil the creatures that haunt your home.‘
This is one of the first ones I read, with only 3 stories, and it brings a realism to Webtoon horror. Using sounds, your phone, your camera and creepy animation… it’s sure to get your blood pumping
‘Stories that crawl up and down your spine. ‘
Short stories get an upgrade in this series with sound, phone vibration and even movement. If it wasn’t terrifying enough before now it’s coming for your fear.
