On September 14, 2022, GRAVEWEAVER X I’M THE GRIM REAPER on Twitter revealed that VIZ Media is licensing I’m the Grim Reaper! The first volume is slated to come out in the Fall of 2024, and four books are currently planned.
But if this turns out as well as other licensed WebToons, four books won’t be enough! So I want to know when I can pre-order them, and will there be any illegal cliffhangers between books?
Why I’m the Grim Reaper is one of my favorite WebToons!
I’m the Grim Reaper holds a special place in my heart. It’s one of the first WebToons I started to read and remains one of the highlights of my life.
The plot delves into Christian themes without coming off as preachy. Scarlet is a joy to watch regardless of if she’s killing sinners, fighting, or getting a beat down in a World of Warcraft-type game.
Chase and Brook complement each other, and the three are chaos! And Satan owns every scene he’s in and makes everything better/worse.
If you haven’t read it, I encourage you to do so. It’s free on the WebToon app, with almost 200 chapters!
The plot revolves around a young woman who wakes up to find that she’s dead. She doesn’t remember how she died or her name, but she doesn’t have time to dwell on it.
Two giant hands grab her, drag her to Hell, and she meets Satan. He tells her he’s a fan and offers her a deal: become a Reaper and kill at least one sinner a day. Doing so will keep her out of Hell, and her body will heal while the soul is sentenced.
But killing multiple sinners doesn’t help, and it’s clear that Satan knows about Scarlet’s past. He won’t tell her anything, and Scarlet reluctantly begins her Reaper duties.
And the roller coaster of her life only grows more chaotic.
Why we need more WebToons to be licensed!
Every time I visit Barnes and Noble, I find my favorite WebToon on the shelf! And several more that I haven’t read but I’ve heard of.
WebToons are the perfect fusion between comics and manga. You have at least a chapter a week, most of them are fully colored, and it’s easy to subscribe to your favorite creators.
Hundreds of genres are available, and most webtoon apps offer an easy threshold to add your own comics. I’m the Grim Reaper is amazing.
You get action, comedy, a little romance, and Satan. That guy can easily have his own webtoon. WebToon is my favorite webtoon app.
There’s always something new to find and contests, and reading the comments is hilarious. Of course, you’ll never be hounded for money, but some of the stories are worth every penny.
I don’t know if you’ll read this, but GRAVEWEAVER, you’re amazing, and your story is truly fantastic. Thank you for bringing I’m the Grim Reaper into the world!
