Devil’s Reign – The Marvel Event Series

The great thing about getting a subscription to Marvel Unlimited is that it lets us keep up on the overarching events shaping the state of the Marvel universe without shelling out too much coin.

Chip Zdarsky was on quite the roll with Daredevil last year, so it’s not shocking to see him make the ongoing battle between Daredevil and Kingpin and ratchet up the stakes to shake up the Marvel universe. The event just wrapped up in the summer of 2022, and the reverberation of that series are still being felt.

Join us as we read and discuss “Devil’s Reign” on the Casual Comics Cast. Starting, oh I don’t know… right now.

Spotify is getting cranky, so here’s a link to the podcast on that platform, followed by the only podcast embed I could get working tonight. But, as always, the cast should be on all major platforms – so listen wherever you are most comfortable!
