According to the author there should be three arcs to this story. The first arc was extremely captivating and began with a seemingly peaceful village setting, but soon enough the true story unravels with twists everywhere you turned. I just couldn't stop reading.

In comparison the second arc (albeit still interesting) has yet to be as captivating as the first. Its downfalls are its slow pace
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the first ended before chapter 50 and the second is still ongoing at 110+
and with the main story shifting from centering on Rose to centering on the Hunters. The story still shifts to Rose from time to time but not enough in my opinion. I find this is a problem inherent with a story that shifts among the POV of multiple characters. Sometimes I just want to read the story of one particular character. Her story is the most interesting.

The multiple POVs does add to the story, however. Everybody views what's happening from their own POV, and thus has their own version of the truth. As you bounce among them, the reader also joins the mission of trying to find out what the truth actually is.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
But 100+ chapters in and I still have so many questions. The second arc has barely scratched the surface. For example just who is Benjamin, what are his powers really, and why is he so obsessed with Rose.

this is a great read, until about 50 chapters in...
The first (two?) parts were excellent and all that everyone is saying, but it just fell off near chap 50...
I tried so hard to want to read more of it, but i cant.
The characters are too odd, and things just dont happen.... Its a little too slow and I dont see how its going anywhere else.

The Best Manhwa I've Ever Read

This is literally the BEST manhwa I've ever read. It's probably even in the top 3 of any manga/manhwa/manhua I've ever read as well. The art, story, and characters drew me in so deep that I had to binge read it over 3 days before I could even consider doing anything else in my spare time. Its a very emotional and tragic story that makes my gut wrench and my heart sink. And I'm not ashamed to say I may have cried on more than one occasion while reading it. There's only ~65 episodes scanlated, but ~140 episodes available on Spottoon (with only a few episodes on rotation unless you purchase it, which I did and it was SO worth it). I will most definitely give it a 10 at this point. They could still very well f*** it up with a bad ending, but so far it's been absolutely perfect.

Excellent series. I would say so far, everything has been near-perfect, but I would not give it a 10 just yet since the series has not yet been completed and all series have the potential to fall short...

Edit: I love this series so much I wrote an in-depth review at xD

Little "Twist"...But

When I read this it wasn't really that interesting from the first and last time I read the summary I wasn't impressed or curious.Because...the only "twist" is instead of the rumor being false it became or was true and my only thought was: "That's it...That's all instead of the rumor being false they made it true...that's the only "twist"
I only read it because of the art and I was really bored at that time.
All it takes is a little bit of patience to get to the really thrilling and exciting parts it's pretty good right now

But it's one of the webtoons that I really enjoy. It's kinda slow though sometimes..I was able to get my hands on the raws but too bad I don't understand it at all. I can only guess by looking at the pictures and I guess it develops well. I'm still waiting for more romance action to happen

Absolute Masterpiece

I've read the entire series so far in the original language. Season 1 is over, and season 2 will be up in October 2012. And I will tell you -

This webtoon is an absolute masterpiece. The art is gorgeous, almost like painting rather than a comic. The story is absolutely tragic and beautiful all at the same time. And the characters are amazing - you get to fall in love with every character, Rose, Maire, everyone - which makes the tragic story even more heartbreaking. If The Pale Horse was created as a novel in the 19th century Europe, it would be the iconic story we would be reading in our High School classrooms. No joke.

This webtoon is a work of art in my opinion, and I wish it was translated more so more people could experience it.

Dat great artwork

I agree with 2 users before me. Gorgeous not enough.
I do not read webtoon, only one or two, and that, usually, because I do not like the artwork. And what I do not like the most from webtoon's artwork is the coloring, before the artwork. Dunno,maybe too flashy?
The colors soothe my eyes, and seems detail to me.
While, the artwork itself, is very very gorgeous.

About the story, not much can be told, because so far still nothing happened...
Still mystery everywhere

I only read the first to chapters as of now (since the rest isn't translated yet) but look at the art. Just look at it. Gorgeous doesn't even come near it.
The story plays in 1835 France - and it feels like it, too. The country atmosphere is lavish, the characters and their clothes are drawn beautifully.
This is the first work I read from this author, but he (she?) certainly has a way with colors. At one point during chapter two, you see a family eating dinner and the colors are chosen in a way that you can practically feel the warm fire burning in the room.
It's beautiful. I don't think I've ever read a story with this much atmosphere. I can't wait to read the rest!

Update 02/2013:

Seriously, you have to read this! Pale Horse it THE best Webcomic I know and is far superior to most of the manga I read. The story is captivating and creepy and beautiful all at the same time, and the coloring is very subtle. Try it! And thank you to Easy Going Scans for making the effort of translating this masterpiece!

It definitely carries a mysterious and disturbing air about it, in the most appealing way possible. I can't vouch for its entirety, but for what it's at right now (ch 1) it has certainly piqued my interest. I will undoubtedly be following it as it progresses.


Magnificent. Not only is its art near-perfect, it continually manages to surprise me everywhere I turn. Halfway through the story, get yourself ready for a breath-taker, because everything you think you know about the story changes!
