Tapastic, a new service created by Tapas Media, launches today and is being described as an “online destination for discovering and enjoying visual stories”. It has raised $750,000 in seed funding from SK Planet, 500 Startups, Strong Ventures, and other angel investors, including Nexon’s former CTO. Inspired by the Korean web comic book phenomenon known as “webtoons”, this site functions as a destination where readers can find serialized webcomics. It aims to help the large numbers of independent comic book and visual story artists around the world, many of whom struggle to gain traction and become noticed.
