About this collection

K-Manhwa (Korean graphic novels) have been part of Korean popular culture since the early twentieth century. Today, with growth of the internet, the online publication of graphic novels has become a major phenomenon in Korea. K-Manhwa are often adapted into films and TV programs, and they have become an influential genre in the realm of contemporary Korean cultural production.

A selection of 1,000 covers have been digitized for online viewing here. The University of Washington East Asia Library has a collection of more than 18,000 volumes published between 1980 and 2004, reflecting a wide range of adult and young adult themes, including mythology, folklore, martial arts, suspense, romance, sports and fantasy. There are also approximately 3,000 popular novels.
