Marvel will place its first comic on the Webtoon platform on January 20, when it launches the seven-part series Eternals: The 500-Year War. The series went live on the Marvel Unlimited app on January 12. 

Eternals: The 500-Year War was produced in Marvel’s “Infinity Comics” vertical-scroll format, which is similar to that used by Webtoon. The story features the Eternals fighting the Deviants at various times and places around the world, with each episode spotlighting a different culture and featuring a different creative team. The creators for the project include writers Dan Abnett, Aki Yanagi, Jongmin Shin, Ju-Yeon Park, David Macho, Rafael Scavone, and Yifan Jiang, artists Geoffo, Rickie Yagawa, Do Gyun Kim, Magda Price, Marcio Fiorito, and Gunji, and colorists Matt Milla, Carlos Macias, Fernando Sifuentes, Pete Pantazis, and Felipe Sobreiro.

This is Marvel’s first comic to run on Webtoon, and it ties in with the recent film The Eternals (see “‘Eternals’ Crosses $100 Million”). DC announced its collaboration with the platform last year (see “DC Universe Characters Are Coming to Webtoon”).
