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 Shadow Prophet and Asterion.
The Shadow Prophet
From the incredible minds of Anne Delseit and Marissa Delbressine comes The Shadow Prophet. In this world, The Great Prophet Godo has a place for everyone in his perfect society. That is unless you are a failure. Itshou is living a diligent and sheltered life when she suddenly finds herself denounced and marked for exile. She finds that her beliefs have been shaken as she heads off to banishment. That is until she has a chance encounter with a childhood sweetheart who puts her on the path to a political uprising.
I was recently introduced to The Shadow Prophet and binged the entire first season in a day and a half. From the moment I began, I found myself pulled into this world through the story and the art. Anne and Marissa weaved a story that drew me in and just didn’t let me go. The worldbuilding is phenomenal and the introduction to the themes and concepts of the series are done at a satisfying pace. I never felt like I wasn’t being rushed information, but gently led through it and Marissa’s art style weaves the panels together to build on that pacing. This is a must-read series, no doubt about it.
The Shadow Prophet is currently on hiatus until early 2022. Now is the perfect time to binge season one here!
Staying within the drama genre category but shifting gears just slightly, we are taking a look at NeverDraws Asterion. When Asterion wished upon for a better life, they never imagined an agent of the stars would actually come to grant it. Asterion now finds themself as the newest member of the Starlight Assembly and is tasked with granting wishes made upon the stars that light up the night sky. But even with their seemingly unlimited abilities, Asterion learns that not every wish will be able to come true.
Asterion is another series I recently began and binged nearly right away. The idea of wishing on stars is a concept that has been used across many forms of media, but NeverDraws’ tale looks from a different perspective. Asterion and the other members of the Starlight Assembly are responsible for granting these wishes. Asterion is new to this job and they are learning just how hard some wishes are to grant. It’s a heartwarming story that will have you captivated throughout as the world expands with each chapter.
Asterion updates every Sunday and can be read here!
