LINE Webtoon, the popular digital comic service pioneering the distribution and consumption of comics worldwide, is now the home for several chapters of Marc Silvestri’s classic series Cyber Force.
The top-selling title in the history of Silvestri’s Los Angeles-based company Top Cow, the latest two trades of Cyber Force have been reformatted specifically for the LINE Webtoon platform for both old and prospective fans alike to enjoy.
From today, fans are able to read Cyber force every Monday through Thursday on LINE Webtoon for free. This will allow for new readers to “binge-read” the previously released chapters of the famed comic on LINE Webtoon and catch up before the new chapters begin, also exclusively later this Fall.
“Cyber Force is without question one of the most popular comics from one of the best comic studios around, and we’re happy to host the past two portions of the Cyber Force saga on LINE Webtoon,” said JunKoo Kim, Founder and Head of LINE Webtoon. “We really think this sets a great stage for this Fall when our readers will be able to experience new Cyber Force chapters exclusively on the Webtoon platform for free!”
Makers of hit comics such as The Darkness, Wanted, and Witchblade, Top Cow created Cyber Force as a tale of cybernetically enhanced freedom fighters. It became so popular that it was printed in 21 languages and still stands as one of the highest selling independent comics in history.
“We see this partnership with LINE Webtoon as a way to please our audience of devoted Cyber Force fans as well as bring in new ones on this new experience which is revolutionizing the way we read comics,” said Marc Silvestri. “We’ve already been deeply involved in developing the next Cyber Force storyline for the LINE Webtoon, and the results are going to truly blow our fans away.”
Additionally, LINE Webtoon and Top Cow are developing Cyber Force as a multi-platform experience for fans who keep up with the rest of the Top Cow universe. The title Aphrodite IX, written by Top Cow president Matt Hawkins, will be deeply tied to the events of Cyber Force on LINE Webtoon, driving fans from the print editions of Aphrodite IX to the weekly chapters on LINE Webtoon and back.
“Cyber Force continues to be Top Cow’s best known series around the world,” says writer of Cyber Force and Top Cow President Matt Hawkins. “Putting the recent two volumes online free for readers will allow them to catch up on the backstory before the original story launches.
