Zambian Comics on Webtoon by Jordan
Hi everyone, Jordan here. When one asks about comics in Zambia the most common point will be the newspaper caricature cartoons found that highlight people or notable events that occurred and are trending. If one is looking for stories to excite and enthrall one has to either have a friend that is interested in the medium or see it out for oneself. One global platform that provides an online platform to comic readers is webtoon a free phone friendly comic reading platform. A place where any aspiring creators can post their content. As of June 2020 some Zambian creators have taken to the platform to try their hand, I personally look forward to see where their stories go and hope that I can see more locally made comics in the future. Below are some Zambian created comics you can find on webtoon.
