In a world ravaged by war, a young boy walks down a lonely road in the aftermath of his mother's death. Along his journey, he witnesses military tanks, dead bodies, and his beloved city in ruins. With eyes clouded by anguish, he pushes himself to keep moving forward.

One morning, he meets a girl in an abandoned bus where he spent the night. Moments after their encounter, the area turns into a battlefield, and the pair escapes into a long abandoned lane. The two strangers decide to walk together to the end of the road, thus beginning a companionship that will ignite new hope inside their shriveled hearts.

I don’t often throw around the word “Masterpiece”, but I think it truly applies to this story.

In just 21 chapters, the author manages to build a believable post-apocalyptic world and attach you to the characters who are traveling through it. The art fits the story extremely well, with its dark, gritty style adding to the already heavy atmosphere of the story.

The Horizon does not hold back in addressing death, fears, and the darkest parts of the human existence, and is, at least through out the majority of the story, extremely nihilistic (or seemingly so).

With a great emphasis on philosophy and addressing the questions read more

This is my first review so go easy on me guys. :)

The Horizon, albeit a bit unknown, is an amazingly crafted manhwa with a story that will bring you to tears in just 21 chapters.

There is not much dialogue between the characters, the author instead uses illustrations and the characters' expressions in order to convey a message.

Themes such as nihilism, pessimism, existentialism, and hope are presented throughout the story in a remarkable manner. The author manages to invoke emotions and present amazing narratives in a few short chapters.

My only complaint is that the story could've been longer; backstories could've been explored, otherwise, this is read more

What to say about The Horizon, undoubtedly one of the saddest and most emotional stories I have ever read and not to mention the very interesting and strong message that the author wanted to pass on to readers.

Although the story has few dialogues between the characters and I don't think this is a problem, the author of the work prefers to emphasize making the reader feel what the characters are going through in each "Illustration"

Even with a few chapters I think the story ended with a golden key.

Each chapter is a new "message".

I was hesitant to give this series a 10/10 because it isn't flawless (mainly because the pacing can be a bit off-kilter at times and there isn't a ton of time devoted to developing each of the characters introduced). However, I think a 10/10 series is a series that perfectly conveys what it is aiming to and capitalizes on its strengths to do so. The Horizon is a series that I think does just that: its messages and themes are clear all throughout and it is a master of showing and telling with its narrative. It is an existentialist story in every sense of the read more
