Popverse's top stories of the day


A little more than 10 years ago, cartoonist Ngozi Ukazu began posting chapters of a webcomic that would change the webcomic scene. Check, Please! followed young college student Eric Bittle as he settles in to his new life at university and finds love and friendship amongst his hockey teammates. For years now, fans have been able to binge the series in full, both online and through print copies. But for those who enjoy waiting between chapters of their favorite serial stories, there's a new option.

Cartoonist Ngozi Ukazu announced on social media this week, that she has begun to post the series onto the WEBTOON platform, chapter-by-chapter. Though there are already two episodes on the platform, going forward, the series will update once a week on Fridays at 4 PM Eastern time. You can read the first two episodes here.
