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?

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Feb 9, 2020

    There's a big reveal at the end of this issue that really ups the level of terror in Ravencroft. I was already on board with this series, but that closing page solidified my feelings for this title. I love how letterer Joe Sabino drops the captions here, juxtaposing Knight's thoughts with the actions of the scene for the most impact. There's a tremendous amount of potential here. Of course, that potential is full of evil and horror, but that's the best kind, right? Read Full Review

    Angel Unzueta brings the story to life with some great art that focuses on the darkness of the facility and its inhabitants. There are some great shots throughout that make you look in the corners of panels to catch something you might have missed. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jan 28, 2020

    I'm curious to see what Tieri and Unzueta do with this book, although I'm a bit hesitant in calling it a must-read at this point. Considering the rich history we've been shown in the previous one-shot stories, this issue is about as cold as the floors of Ravencroft itself. A good enough setup issue, but I'm waiting to see when the real conflict and action kicks into gear. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Jan 29, 2020

    This series hasn’t taken off running like I expected following the one-shots. There are still a number of mysteries to be solved, with no sign of resolution yet, I only hope they start providing answers soon to hold our interest. Read Full Review
