Do you love reading comics vertically?
Do you love samurai jidageiki?
Did you enjoy reading RONIN BLOOD?

Well then, make haste! RONIN BLOOD is reworked for the Webtoon format and looks better than ever. Go check it out and let us know, how you like the different experience :)

Slovakia
EMPAYA Comics is a duo of comicbook creators, who love adventure comics full of action and create such, with their motto being "Comics are fun!". Martin Plško and Vladimír Schmidt are from Slovakia but create comics understandable for everyone, not depending on geographic location or cultural inheritance.

Oh, yes, and what does Empaya mean? Empire. That´s a very modest comicbook goal.
