I would love some more webcomic recommendations. I went through a lot of them after Innkeeper was published on Tapas, and wonder if there are any new ones you enjoyed. My latest favorites are Baroness Goes On Strike, and Little Rabbit and the Big Bad Leopard.
We always do Tapas, so today let’s do some Webtoons.
I’m the Queen in This Life
Yep, it’s as messed up and dark as it looks, and it’s my catnip. New issues are posted on Sunday and I am there. Unfortunately for the golden boy over there, his half-brother and villain is much more interesting.
It’s the same problem that I have with Lost Track of Time, a Chinese drama on Viki. The villain is spectacular and the hero is so boring, oh dear God. I fast forward all the romance scenes with the hero. No regrets.
The Greatest Estate Developer
So funny. This poor guy just wants to get enough money to live the lazy life. Instead he ends up embarking on these major projects like building modern sewers and houses with radiant heat. The faces Lloyd makes, hehehe.
This is a comedy with absurd elements. For example, there is a tribe of orcs. They are bodybuilders. They pose. A lot.
He is not wrong. Not spoiling anything, but this is a supernatural thriller. It’s dark, it’s cracktacular, there are a butt ton of episodes available, don’t start late at night if you have to go to work the next day.
So well done. Couldn’t stop reading it. Just when people say, “Oh, this genre is tapped out and I can’t see how anyone can do anything new with that,” something like this comes along, and you’re like, “Sure, I’ll bite.”
The Remarried Empress
The trailer portrays her as soft. She is not. She is calculating and once she decides on the course of action, she goes after it.
I quit this one because the constant mistress getting him to be mean to her dynamic irritated me so I read up to the point where our empress escapes and dropped it. Although, I do wonder if I should keep going as now it would be lovely to see her crush the Emperor through diplomacy.
Return of the Mad Demon
This is one of the rare, very rare, cases of a true chaotic neutral protagonist. You have no idea what the hell he is going to do next. No clue. This is another reincarnation story, except our protagonist was mad in the clinical sense when he died and he is not all together sane when he goes back in time to his body. He is facing a world of martial artists and all of them are bad.
It’s violent, the art is sick, and there are flashes of genuine hilarity among the carnage.
