To the men and women of the Marvel Universe, Ravencroft Institute for the Criminally Insane appeared to be a hospital devoted to the rehabilitation of society's most violent offenders. But appearances can be deceptive, and -- as Captain America learned the hard way - some secrets have teeth.

    This especially spooky tale is good for what it is, a teasing building block for something larger. Read Full Review

    Look, I am not saying you are going to have an outer body experience, our make a huge revelation about yourself after reading Ruins of Ravencroft: Dracula #1. What I am saying is that if you can't have fun reading a comic book about Captain America fighting Dracula " and I am talking "old school" Marvel Dracula Dracula, like Count Dracula Bela Lugosi style " then something might be wrong with you. Also the flashback story is framed a bit like Bram Stokers Dracula novel and that was just delightful. Read Full Review

    Ruins of Ravencroft: Dracula #1 ends the series on a low note but like past issues it does a good job of fleshing out the history. It's better as a piece of the miniseries and it sets up the upcoming series nicely. This is for those who have been reading up to this point but new readers might want to wait for the trade.

    Comic Watch - Nicholas Osborn Feb 2, 2020

    Though lacking in depth of plot and characterization, Ruins of Ravencroft: Dracula #1 is a fun one-shot style story featuring Dracula at a point in history that isn't often explored. Read Full Review

    These three one-shots have left me intrigued to see where the Ravencroft series is going. The line-up of characters seems a bit random at time and hopefully an explanation will be forthcoming in the ongoing Ravencroft series. The art has been good throughout. If the goal of these one-shots has been to get people excited for the Ravencroft series then they've succeeded. Read Full Review

    RUINS OF RAVENCROFT: DRACULA #1 suffers from what plagued the first first two issues the modern day story just isnt that interesting. Unfortunately, this time the flashback story isnt that great either. The vampire experimentations and monsters are cool but underused. The title baddie this issue comes off as an unthreatening ham actor. Simply put, the horror is not very horrific. If you were wondering if the series would be better as just a flashback, RUINS OF RAVENCROFT: DRACULA #1 may dissuade that thinking. Read Full Review

    You would think a showdown between Captain America and Dracula would be pretty cool, yeah? But "cool" isn't exactly how I would describe Ruins of Ravencroft: Dracula #1. Read Full Review
