- Easy access to Korean webcomics for global readers through its new subscription-based service

SEOUL, South Korea--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#EBookPlatform--RIDI Corporation sets foot to turn the tables on comic culture with the introduction of Manta, a global webcomics service.

Manta presents a diverse collection of webcomics including, but not limited to, romance, fantasy, a slice of life, horror, mystery, thriller, and Manta Originals — its very own original content.

Unlike any other webcomic service, readers can gain unlimited access to a rich pool of content that has been curated to target each individual’s tastes at a price of $3.99/month.

RIDI has led the e-book platform business in South Korea for the past 10 years and has expanded its business through various genres of digital content, including web novels, webcomics, and animations. The company revealed that Manta will leverage years of experience within the digital content industry in Korea and advance as a global service.

“With Manta, we strive to make reading webcomics a mainstream entertainment culture worldwide,” said Kisik Bae, RIDI CEO. “North America is just the beginning — we’re going to expand our service so that people from all over the world can easily access and enjoy webcomic contents in their own language.”

Manta plans on delivering an even more diversified webcomic experience by expanding the production of original contents based on films, TV shows, and games.

Manta is now available on iOS, Android, and the web (https://manta.net).
