Webcomics are comic books published online. Now there are apps where you can read them for free and even publish your own comic. One of the most popular apps is Line Webtoon, the largest online comic book platform.
The first webcomic was Witches and stitches by Eric Millikin where he published on CompuServe, an online service in 1985. After that year, more webcomics began to be published.
One of the most influential webcomics is Homestuck, a seven-year-old webcomic that started as the story of a video game that a boy and his friends would play, then an epic adventure. It challenged storytelling and engaged the fandom in a discussion and what it all means to create an experience for the community.
