Tapas is a better webtoon platform if you’re looking to have a forum that allows you to connect with the community aswell as also grow and market easier to that audience.
On the other hand LINE Webtoon is a better platform if you are looking to have access to a higher pool of viewers due to their marketing efforts.
Now to help you better pick which is the better platform here is a list with different features that both sites may or may not offer that I feel should be taken into consideration for those looking to build their webcomic career.
|Features||Tapas||LINE Webtoon Canva|
|Landing Page for Creator Profile||Yes||Sort of small|
|Plug Social Media links||Yes||Yes|
|Comic Pitching Contact||Yes||No|
|Comment Deleting Options||Yes||No -Report button only|
LINE Webtoon and Tapas are very similar platforms but with Tapas they do offer the option for you to pitch a comic to them to try to become a premium author whereas Webtoon getting feature depends a lot on popularity and luck.
When it comes to the audience Tapas has a more friendly community type audience but I think that’s mostly due to the fact that they have a landing page creators profile where you can leave comments for the community to better connect with the creators.
With LINE Webtoon there isn’t a forum to help build that gap between readers and creators so the audience can be a little more cold and disconnected but I noticed that responding to comments in my updates has helped to foster a warmer environment and relationship with my audience on Webtoons platform.
If you’re just starting out with posting your webtoon online then I would recommend Tapas as a great beginner friendly app because of how eye-catching their webtoon upload format tips and UI design is.
That isn’t to say Webtoon doesn’t have tips within their backend but a lot of people have been having trouble finding the webtoon upload format despite it being listed right on the screen.
I post my webtoon on both platforms while also using them as a traffic funnel to my own self-hosted site where I also upload my webcomic.
I did write a blog post sharing a list of alternative websites where you can also post your webtoon comics on if you’d like to see that here.
