    AIPT - David Brooke May 13, 2020

    This is a great fourth issue for a variety of reasons, but the biggest is how it all comes together offering delights of different sorts. There is character intrigue, interesting reveals, a plot that moves forward, and a good cliffhanger, too. This issue offers everything that should get you giddy for another issue. For some, it may have come too late, but for me, I'm all-in for the finale. Read Full Review

    Honestly, I'd pick this issue up only because I'm starving for new comics. Otherwise, if you haven't been following along to this point, don't dive in unless you're looking for something new to read. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson May 24, 2020

    Ravencroft has a tremendous amount of potential, however I don't think it will come together in time with only one issue left. A whole lot of ideas have been introduced in a short period, yet none of them are really paying off. That might be different if there was more space to tell the story or a more focused effort. I can only hope that we'll see some of these horrific elements embraced further down the line in the Marvel Universe, as we've seen some great spooky stuff in this super hero world over the past few years.

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon May 14, 2020

    Ravencroft is an attempt to shine a light on a somewhat forgotten corner of the Marvel Universe, but it's only making the case that it should have stayed forgotten. Read Full Review

    Like it’s not the worst idea ever, it’s just also not interesting to me and I don’t care to read it.

    This issue didn't feel as long as the previous issues, that said, there was just as much action. After the two false starts of The Punisher, will the next issue actually show Frank letting loose in Ravencroft?

    I feel like this is the closest we're going to get to Lovecraftian comics from Marvel, which is somewhat disappointing because this title comes so close to promising a Chthulu-style story.

    The villains are a little campy but I haven't seen Taskmaster written so close to form as he's written in this book since his creation.

    I wish this series would explain why Norman is back to normal, but I guess that's someone else's job. You can feel the stretching here. This story could've been really cool. It had the potential to be a fun, schlocky horror comic. But I think it took itself too seriously, while also having way too much on its plate. There's a lot here and for it to be reduced to just monsters taking over the asylum... That's wasted potential. But hey at least Punisher is here, right? He's cool?

    I mean it is what youd expect so far from this title. Its not horrible and actually has some cool pages but im ready for it to wrap up and move on.

    "Die Hard in a supervillain prison" is such a good (albeit not novel) premise that it can get this comic close to average, even with such deeply flawed storytelling.
