It depends on the series, really. I'm pickier about art with webtoons than I am with manga, so if the design turns me off, I don't touch it. I did start Noblesse at one point, though.

I read a lot of Webtoons. It's probably my most used app at this point. I love the variety in genres and art styles. There are goofy, light-hearted stories, but also dark, intense stories. If you haven't yet, read Under The Aegis. It's incredible

Yes, yes I do. The most memorable I've read is Killing Stalking (completed). Pretty psychologically disturbing. Also erotic. Strange, honestly, but the storyline is amazing.

To be honest the only Manwha I read is Killing Stalking? I want to read some other ones though, but for now it is the only one.
Killing Stalking is fantastic. Did you like it?

I've read a handful of them but I'm always looking for new series (hopefully in English!). Do you have any recommendations?
I loved Under The Aegis. I would recommend that to anyone. Some others that I like are Catharsis (for something a little scarier), Duty After School (a bit more action-y) and Let's Play. Some others that are nice and most people would like: Super Secret, Ghost Wife, The Steam Dragon, and Siren's Lament. Happy reading!

A lot of webtoons have spectacular art, but there are some where you have to get used to the style. If you like Noblesse, maybe check out Catharsis, Nano List or Ghost Wife. They have similar art styles, but not exactly the same.
