Are you a comic book lover? If yes, you can now rejoice with the idea of reading comics through a digital platform. Comics have drastically evolved in recent years and it is now possible to read them via smartphones and computers.
They are also known as webtoons. They make comic books relevant until now. You don’t just read the stories, but they also have visual effects, sound effects and zoom features. It is a mix between reading from an actual book and watching a video.
This is an increasingly popular trend if we are to look at the numbers. Back in 2012, less than 10% of Internet users in North and South America have read a webtoon. In just a few years, these figures have jumped significantly.
These digital comics have also reached over 30 billion cumulative views over the years in over 200 countries. If the numbers will be analysed, the only interpretation is that webtoons will become even more popular in the future.
Thanks to digital content developers and authors, we still enjoy comics until now. They have elevated the entire experience and made comics relevant especially to the younger audiences.
More people have also been encouraged to write digital comics considering that an author earns $80,000 per month on average based on one of the largest webtoon sources.
We have been fascinated by comic books in the past and with webtoons, we remain fascinated until now. If you want to see these changes and their significance, check the infographic below.
