  • Korean-language manga or manhwa are comics produced by Korean comic artists. Their style varies from that of Japanese manga (Japanese comics) and western comics. Blizzard and Tokyopop markets all of its original English language manhwa as manga, as the term is well established in its target audience market and manhwa is not.
