Posted on August 3rd, 2011 by Ryu Sheng |

Zoom Comics is Seven Seas foray into online reading, and frankly it’s not upto the high standard I’d come to expect from Seven Seas, in fact it’s rather pathetic.

Given how late they are venturing into the online reader scene I would have thought that they would have spent more time researching their competitors, looking at how they did things, where they went wrong, and where they were right.

Apparently though they seem to have just stuck a few things together and decided to release it in the hopes people will like it.

The US Army gives him an offer he can’t refuse: his life, in exchange for the rescue of the New Jersey governor’s daughter, apparently kidnapped by Winterthorn’s minions and taken into the depths of the Magic Kingdom.

It’s a mission that can only be accomplished by the most powerful mage there is. Unfortunately for him, the government believes Isaac Silverberg is that man. In fact, they are quite sure of it. But is he…?
