In a piece of surprising news that I didn’t expect, DC Characters are coming to webcomics through a deal with webtoon.
According to Variety,
“DC is excited to introduce our iconic characters to a new generation of fans worldwide,” DC Comics SVP and GM Daniel Cherry III said in a statement. He added that DC has been “working closely with the Webtoon writers and artists to adapt our characters and stories to Webtoon’s mobile format. Our shared goal is to create fun and compelling DC stories that all readers will enjoy.”
“This collaboration is a landmark for us as we work toward a new age of digital comics in the U.S.,” said David Lee, head of content at Webtoon Entertainment U.S.
So yeah, I’m very interested to see what DC comics will do with this Webtoon format. Ok, maybe I’m not THAT excited because when it comes to stories, DC has been a hit or miss. The reason why I read webtoons is CAUSE I’m getting stories I wouldn’t from the two giants. I guess we’ll have to wait to see.
