    Mussolini made the trains run on time, and Captain America makes the Secret Empire tie-ins good. Maybe there's something to this blood-soaked dictator stuff. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jun 8, 2017

    Brave New World adds little to the larger Secret Empire equation, as it does little more than showcase what various secondary heroes are up to during the rise of Hydra. Nor do the majority of the characters on the cover actually appear in this issue. Read Full Review

    This issue is a mix of three really great stories that tell quite a bit about Hydra's taking over the country. It doesn't have a whole lot of impact on the Secret Empire continuity except for Allor's story, but the two back stories present a lot of entertainment in both storytelling skills and comedy. This is an issue that is definitely worth the read. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Jean-Luc Botbyl Jun 12, 2017

    Evaluating this book is difficult. For as much as I love “Sanctuary,” $3.99 is a steep price point for ten pages. The other two have interesting ideas but are poorly executed. Ultimately, Ill leave it up to you, but I dont think I can recommend a third of a book. If the other installments are good, then I could see this being worth getting in trade. Read Full Review

    This SE tie-in suffers from some poor writing and execution. Out of the three stories I could only recommend the first, the Namor story the only true SE link. Read Full Review

    It's always such a hit and miss with these short stories. The first one about The Invaders is actually the best of the set with the art of Level and Boyd and story by Allor it shows Namor in a very tight spot to be in. The art is very comic-esque and what you expect from old school characters. The second one about the Giant Man I found completely pointless and only important if you followed the AntMan story. The last one with Gwenpool you know from the beginning was going to be comedic trash and it was. But It was funny and what I expected The writing and art of Kocher, Ford and Rosenberg grabs the essence of Gwenpool very well and just funny.

    "Thou shalt release a cash-in anthology series of shoddy tie-in strips following c-list characters through thy crossover event" reads one of the modern Marvel Bible's commandments, apparently. Invaders: Namor is attempting to Switzerland his country through this Hydrated America nonsense and that involves taking the OG Human Torch and Toro prisoner. The sooner the focus of this story switches to Namor's shoulders, the better. Giant-Man: Jeremy Whitley uses Secret Empire as an excuse to pitch a Ms. Marvel-esque ongoing solo for Raz Malhotra. I wish him the best of luck; it feels like a good enough idea for a series. Gwenpool: Surely Marvel's best genre-savvy 4th-wall-breaker has lots of hilarious and insightful commentary to deliver on this, more
