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.
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.
