If you have yet to find any reason to download LINE Webtoon, we’ve just found one for you, especially if you’re a fan of “Star Wars”.
Get ready to be transported back to a galaxy far, far away through a new “Star Wars” digital comic series on the popular digital comic service. Through the app, fans can read the original space opera trilogy that is presented from a different perspective.
There are a couple of reasons why this digital comic series “is presented in a different perspective”.
First of all, this is a digital comic series that is authored by Hong Jacga, a renowned Korean comic artist who has received huge accolades for his work on “Hwa Ja”, “Dorothy Band”, and “The Cat Funeral“. The latter 2 comic series were adapted into a musical and a movie respectively.
As a “Star Wars” fan himself, Hong Jacga aims to effectively deliver the original “Star Wars” story by reconstructing events from the films while adding his uniquely realistic and exquisite art style. The main characters, backgrounds and locations are consistent with the “Star Wars” universe as well.
What makes this digital comic series so different from the original trilogy is also because the story is being told from the point-of-view of a young Luke Skywalker. It centres on how Luke grows up on Tatooine, before the events in “Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope”.
Jacga’s passion for the original material permeates every page of the series and there will be much to look forward to with new interesting content available exclusively through the “Star Wars” digital comic. It is sure to appeal to both long time enthusiasts of “Star Wars” and new fans alike who will enjoy learning more about the epic space opera.
In a press statement, JunKoo Kim, Founder and Head of LINE Webtoon, said:
Our fans are in for something special as they now have a chance to dive into the epic “Star Wars” story in a totally new way, only on LINE Webtoon.
“This immersive digital comic experience offers a brand new experience for Star Wars fans and perfectly showcases the appeal of our digital storytelling format,” he added.
Pioneering the distribution and consumption of comics worldwide, LINE Webtoon presents the beautifully designed “Star Wars” digital comic series in a unique, easy to read scroll-based storytelling style.
