Good morning fellow Webtoon readers and welcome to this week’s installment of Saturday Morning Webtoons! This is where we shine a light on two Webtoons we are thoroughly enjoying. These stories have had us captivated chapter after chapter each week and we couldn’t pass up sharing them with you! So grab your favorite snacks, an electronic device and settle into these sensational stories.

DISCLAIMER: The following posts have possible spoilers for The Red King and Code Adam.

The Red King

Ivan remembering what happened the night before in The Red King.

The Red King, from Heyleene, reminds us that being young, rich and handsome doesn’t always bring one happiness. And Ivan is the living proof – just ask his family. As the black sheep of his family, he spends his time drinking, partying and just being a royal screwup instead of building a career in his father’s vast business. But that isn’t even the worst of it. Ivan here may have accidentally helped a supernatural entity steal a secret that could bring his father’s entire corporate empire to the ground. The real question is, how many more secrets are they hiding?

You will realize just how beautiful The Red King and Heyleene’s art style is in just a few scenes. Seriously the way the scenes flow into each other to build the story and then the attention to everything from the main focus in scenes down to the smaller details: chef’s kiss, guys. And my love for this isn’t just about the art! The series has such a terrific story with well-thought-out characters. Each chapter builds on the story in ways you would never expect and just pulls you. I promise you will binge the first season and love every moment of it!

The Red King is currently on hiatus. Catch up with it here before season two starts!

Code Adam

Code Adam comes from the incredible mind of Atterozen and follows a group of children known as Horrors who are trained to become super-soldiers. Human beings created in a lab for the purpose of fighting on the front lines of a bloody war. But what happens when the war ends? When they find they aren’t needed anymore? They were the subject of brutal experiments. A few decide it’s time to break free and finally find a cure before the powers consume them. But what secrets will they uncover and will they be able to save themselves before it’s too late?

Code Adam is one of those Webtoon series that will have you laughing one minute and sobbing the next. These are children who were created with the explicit purpose of fighting in a war that has long been over. So now what? While we might not be able to say we are super-soldiers, I think it’s safe to say that at least once in our lives, we have thoughts about where to go next in life and where do we belong. This series will take you on a ride of action, mystery, intrigue, betrayal and on top of all of that – compassion. Bring the tissues and maybe one of those stress balls.

Code Adam updates every Monday and can be read here!
