Zoom Comics (including EC guest appearances) gone from web

Post by tau neutrino » Sat Sep 09, 2017 2:47 pm

Like the rest of the board, Zoom Comics webcomics got nerfed during the recent upgrade. For the moment, Seven Seas has decided not to restore them but to only use third-party platforms (like comiXology) for their webcomics. So if you're a rabid completionist who wants to get Maria Delacroix's guest appearance in Vampire Cheerleaders Must Die! or see little Layla give little Stephanie Kane her skull hairpin Vampire Cheerleaders vol.2, you'll have to buy them or get Comixology Unlimited. The poor Paranormal Mystery Squad doesn't get any billing on the Comixology page.

(The Zoom Comics forums have been locked. I had the last post on the VC/PMS one, but I had one left that I wanted to do about Stephanie Kane and Avengers #200. I'll try to put it somewhere.)

Kind of sad to see the board locked. I posted a lot on there.
Sparking now, search within your soul to find the answer!

I wanted to be the last poster :(

@Hyper Magi: It's the end of an era. There's always the Facebook page, although that's not nearly as convenient.

@vampire hunter D: I would have made my last post on Thursday, (unknowingly) the last day before the forum was locked, but I got busy.

@moderators: Since the Zoom Comics forums are locked, is it okay to post about VC/PMS and the others on the Media Madness forum?

Adam Arnold explained why he did it in his answer to my question about why his Avatar said somewhat ominously "The requested user does not exist."
Yes, around the time of the server move, my account was started acting up and no amount of password resetting allowed me to log in. With Seven Seas' shift towards Twitter/Facebook/Tumblr and our OEL titles becoming available to read for free for Kindle Unlimited subscribers, it felt like the best time to close up the forum sections. --AA
On Comixology, the only Pixie Trix Comics are Menage a 3. Are there plans for EC/MC/DC to be added?

Hi, tau neutrino,

I generally have nothing to do with ither any of the Zoom comics fora, or Media Madness (I'm not sure anyone is really modding there...). So generally, you can post there about VC/PMS if you want to.

Technically you and midgetshrimp are listed as the moderators. I continued the poll here.

Would people want to see Adam Arnold do EC/MC/DC fill-in with or without a crossover?

Hmmm, well, then, technically, that's wrong.

midgetshrimp has not even frequented the board for years. Somebody needs to do some cleanup...

He's also listed as a moderator for this forum and the Menage a 3 one among others.
