[QUOTE] Thought 2: I've been looking at some Korean manwha lately, and an interesting thing is that among the English translated ones which were originally webcomics, they are presented without pagination. They just flow along in one long scroll-like thing. Is this a common method of presentation for Asian webcomics in general, or is it something more regional in its use? [/QUOTE] The few jp web comics I read are in normal page size format (this is also so since they might be printed and sold as tankoubons). Korean web comics already "charge" and "make money" by browsing them through their official sites (it's similar to what the new Taito system is trying to achieve); I suppose that it's thanks to [i]that[/i] that authors don't feel the need of publishing (thus, arranging things in regular page format).... And to be honest, after checking a large quantity of Korean manwha up, I can confidently they are all mostly incredibly dull, uninspired and boring [:2ch_ppe:] (it's like... MTV executives playing alternative band or something, everything is just wrong and doesn't join up properly). The only series that I have absolutely no qualms for and that I think that it's just totally awesome is [URL=http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=53027]Pink Lady[/URL]... It's the story of some art students that bump up into each other and just rub each other on the worst way possible (though, unknown to them they do share a common background). The series itself utilize many references to art, expression and usage of colors. The good thing is that while reading it you realize that the author does indeed care about usage of colors and brightness to tell the story; you can see him [i]doing what he preaches[/i] (it's not like "Beck", where they tell you that [i]they have the potential to be a legendary world success quality band[/i], but that storyline illusion is simply dispelled once you heard them play, har har). Anyway, it's though luck to follow that story [URL=http://comic.naver.com/webtoon/list.nhn?titleId=22896]if you can't read it in korean[/URL]; the author in person requested the scanlation groups to drop off the series (as scanlations are "free" and korean online web hosted sites do pay him a fee for his works he wasn't pleased with them). If Nobi is reading this, he should check it up, har har hardy har [:2ch_kabe:]
