Manhwa Review: I Am the Sorcerer King

Details: Also known as 나는 마도왕이다. It is currently ongoing.

Score: 7/10

I am a sucker for the isekai genre. I am a sucker for the Korean variations of the isekai genre. This comic hits all those tropes and really isn’t all that creative when compared to all the other isekai stuff out there. I still enjoy this thing though.

There’s nothing creative in the premise here. Our protagonist is a young man who lives in a world where people have awakened to powers similar to what you’d find in a fantasy role playing video game. Monsters are popping up as well are dungeons. The protagonist suddenly gains the memories of a past life and becomes over powered. Its pretty standard stuff.

The art is okay. Solo Leveling, what I consider the king of current Korean manhwa art, is still better. This isn’t bad though.

The story is redundant for the genre.

Overall, this is just more isekai fodder. It doesn’t do anything new. It’s got some pretty pictures, though nothing spectacular. I read this because I’m a sucker for the genre.
