What is WEBTOON CANVAS?
Your story starts on CANVAS, WEBTOON’s self-publishing platform, where creators manage everything related to their series. Posting on CANVAS means that you, as a creator, have all control over all aspects of your story and can use the platform to build a unique audience thanks to the thousands of readers that visit the platform daily. The platform offers you the tools to grow your audience and make money doing what you love. Make Comics, Reach Millions.
