This episode covers the event series that focused on an evil Hydra controlled Steve Rogers taking over the Marvel Universe.

Listen and let us know your thoughts on whether or not Secret Empire goes into the canon of all time greats!
Join us for our first episode of the Critically Comics podcast! This past weekend we had the opportunity to comic creator Rico Renzi. Renzi is best known for his work on Image Comics’s Loose Ends, Vertigo Comic’s Goddess Mode, and Marvel’s Spider-Gwen and The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl. We talk to Renzi about his process, what it means to include people of color in his work, how he felt seeing Spider-Gwen on screen, and what books he would include in the comic book / graphic novel canon.
On the third episode of the Critically Comics podcast, Steven and Tara discuss Marvel’s Squirrel Girl by Ryan North and Erica Henderson!
