tiyire: (Fanlore adding fandoms)
[personal profile] tiyire
(I now have the perfect icon for this post!)

Most people, when they find a new fandom that is tiny and that they want to encourage others to join, make a pimping post, create comms and/or fanworks, and squee. The first thing I do: Make a fanlore page about it. Heh.

Tower of God, a manhwa/webtoon that I read all in one sitting in 6 hours last night because I couldn´t stop. (Except in chapter 68 where I stared for five minutes at that one picture. Yes.) It has good art (colored!), very interesting characters (many of them non-human) & character dynamics, worldbuilding background, and it´s exciting. I have no idea where it´s going (if it´s going down the apparently logical plot route it will take many years to finish and it seems very unlikely), but I definitely want to find out. I also want all the Anak/&Androssi fanworks. *goes back to stare at chapter 68*
The huge gap on that fanlore page is currently Korean fandom - anyone speak Korean, by any chance? ^^

Check it out!

I admit I have a really hard time with webtoons because I find the color jarring! Haha. I think I've just gotten too used to the B&W of manga and print manhwa.

Haha, One Piece is one of my favs!

I do read a couple webcomics (Oglaf, Khaos Komix & now Fox Sister) but I guess the art style differences make so that I don't find the color jarring. I think part of it is that I've been reading manhwa for a while so I'm used to the more intricate art styles from printed manhwa and you tend to lose that detail when you go to web. That was mentioned in the interview by the Breaker creators and I think maybe on the artists' blog? Somewhere. I know he's commented that there is a big difference between print and webtoon and hopes that even though people follow Breaker's second series on Daum, they'll buy the print volumes because there's a big difference in quality.
