Webtoons and comics are both forms of sequential art that tell stories through a combination of images and text, but there are several key differences between the two formats:

  • Format: Webtoons are designed to be read on digital platforms, typically through a web browser or mobile app, while comics are traditionally printed on paper.
  • Panel layout: Webtoons are typically formatted vertically, while comics are formatted horizontally.
  • Storytelling approach: Webtoons often employ techniques like infinite scrolling, sound effects, and animation to enhance the reading experience, while comics rely more on static images and narrative captions.
