This post pertains to: Comic
I am considering uploading my comic to LINE Webtoons, which is a subsidiary of Naver, one of the most popular Korean search engines. Webtoons are what they call ’em in Korea.
Anyway, I did a little research on the site. It seems there are two parts of the site; one is for featured artists, who are official artists chosen by Naver and get paid. This is extremely prestigious since you need an ungodly amount of votes or something to be picked this.
The other, the Challenge League, is for everyone, though I’m not sure if Naver has to approve it first or not when you submit it – but I see several series from Tapastic on there. The Challenge League is equivalent to Tapastic it seems as a comic hosting site, but if you stick around and get super fucking popular you can get upgraded to the featured artists section.
After Chapter 3 gets completed I was going to upload to LINE maybe. Test some waters and see if it’s worth it or not. Uploading my comic in 4 places then? Fuck. I want to just put a ‘WE MOVED TO TAPASTIC’ notice on SmackJeeves because there’s so little traction there. The same 6-8 people look at the comic on update days. I probably get 1 subscriber every month. There is nothing worth salvaging there. It is a warzone of Boy’s Love.
