    HQ Manga WebComics made outside Japan

    Are there any popular manga webcomics made outside japan (europe or USA)?
    I'm not talking about stupid doujins of narutos/bleach, sprites or hentai, the real thing, High Quality Webcomics with manga style made OUTSIDE Japan by non-japanese people.
    ORIGINAL STORIES, NON-HENTAI.

    Do such things even exist?
    In MH's menu you can find categories for manga, Manhwa and Manhua, but nothing else. What about "Westwa"?

    ... There are. I can only talk about Spain because I don't know how it goes in other countries (or languages), but lately Spanish publishing houses that release Japanese manga are also focusing on Spanish authors, and there's quite a few Spanish manga out there. If you're searching for actual webcomics, there's the Spanish manga 5 Elements (made by the author of Raruto, that has its own section here, but it's a completely original story) that I've been trying to talk the author into releasing in English for a couple years. In fact, that one manga has even made it to Spanish stores, with volumes where like 95% of the content is available online, and it gets quite some sales. And he's not the only Spanish web-mangaka, at all.

    I don't know how it goes in other countries, but just to answer your question: yes, there are.
    Currently translating Raruto, a Spanish parody of Naruto (getting ready for the last two chapters, to be released in English in October and November). Check it out here!

    Also working on another project that you might get to see in January...

    If you're talking about OEM (Original English-language Manga), I know that Gomanga (Seven Seas Entertainment) has some of their OEM titles availble online. I don't know if that would count as a webcomic though. They always put up a page or two from their OEM titles daily ever since Seven Seas was founded in 2004.
