Manhua refer to comics originally produced in China with a Chinese-speaking audience in mind, although they're rapidly increasing in popularity internationally due to the recent influx of digital manhua. Many manhua originate from Hong Kong and Taiwan.

Unlike most comics, manhua can be read both physically and digitally (although digital manhua is clearly the more preferred format). Manhua is usually colored, with pages being read like any other western comic- from left to right.

Animated adaptations of manhua are generally known as donghua.
