Last week, readers got their first taste of Frank Tieri’s RAVENCROFT in RUINS OF RAVENCROFT: CARNAGE, the first of three one-shots that pave the way for his new series. Sold out with a second printing coming next month, RUINS OF RAVENCROFT: CARNAGE told a deliciously dark tale that tied together Ravencroft’s chilling past with established Marvel lore. The twisted tour through RAVENCROFT’s most pivotal – and most frightening – chapters continues in RUINS OF RAVENCROFT: SABRETOOTH and RUINS OF RAVENCROFT: DRACULA. They’ll be no turning back as more sinister secrets come to light about the Marvel Universe’s darkest corner. But even with these many revelations, readers still won’t be prepared for the horrors that await when the doors of Ravencroft swing open on January 29th in RAVENCROFT #1!
“When Frank pitched us his idea for RAVENCROFT, I instantly knew he had hit on something special,” raves Editor-in-Chief CB Cebulski. “And the one-shots quickly grew to a mini, which in turn expanded to Ravencroft becoming an important part of Marvel’s overall story plans in 2020. There’s all kinds of craziness coming!”
Don’t believe us? Hear it straight from the mad architect of Ravencroft himself, writer Frank Tieri:
“We’re really telling the tale of two Ravencrofts. In the RUINS OF RAVENCROFT one-shots, we’re taking a deep dive into the PAST… uncovering some of the previously unrevealed dark lore of the institution, which as readers will see is very much intertwined with some rather disturbing history of the Marvel Universe itself. In fact, one could even say the history of Ravencroft IS the history of evil in the Marvel Universe. Fans saw that demonstrated firsthand in the just released RUINS OF RAVENCROFT: CARNAGE and that trend continues with the upcoming RUINS OF RAVENCROFT: SABRETOOTH and RUINS OF RAVENCROFT: DRACULA.
“These diabolical history lessons lead us to our five issue series, RAVENCROFT where we deal with Ravencroft’s PRESENT. Expect plenty of twists and turns and some really %^&*ed up surprises… and that’s not even me mentioning the VERY shocking prisoner who occupies Cell 616. And I’ll just let fans make of that what they will in the meantime…”
There you have it, True Believers. Are you ready for RAVENCROFT? See for yourself by acquainting yourself with some of the notorious inmates you’ll meet there in this exclusive peek at RUINS OF RAVENCROFT: DRACULA.

After the hellish horrors of ABSOLUTE CARNAGE, the Ravencroft Institute has received a much-needed facelift and is open for business with a new staff, including JOHN JAMESON, looking to atone for the part he played in ABSOLUTE CARNAGE. But will Ravencroft return the mentally unstable villains of the Marvel Universe to upstanding citizens and give John the redemption he’s looking for, or will they fall prey to the hospital’s seemingly sinister nature?
