And after that, Tieri will write a five-issue Ravencroft mini-series, starring various criminally insane villains (the kind of maniacs who want to fight people in parking lots), with fan-favorite artist TBA.

Beginning in January, the Ravencroft Institute springs to the center of the Marvel Universe like never before.

Just announced at New York Comic Con 2019, three new RUINS OF RAVENCROFT stories emerge from the ashes of ABSOLUTE CARNAGE and lead into a five-issue RAVENCROFT limited series at the start of the new year. Writer Frank Tieri tells the tale alongside a host of all-star artists.

In RUINS OF RAVENCROFT: CARNAGE #1, the Marvel Universe still needs a place to treat and rehabilitate the criminally insane, and efforts to reconstruct the Institute are well underway. But Ravencroft is no ordinary facility, and untold secrets may yet be waiting to be unearthed in the destruction Carnage left after his attack…

Then, in RUINS OF RAVENCROFT: SABRETOOTH #1, the untold past of the Ravencroft Institute for the Criminally Insane is revealed. The facility's past has started to unravel, and in doing so reveals hidden chapters in the lives of some of the Marvel Universe's most recognizable heroes and villains.

Finally, in RUINS OF RAVENCROFT: DRACULA #1, none other than the Sentinel of Liberty himself, Captain America, learns that this hospital—seemingly devoted to the rehabilitation of society's most violent offenders—has even more secrets than it once seemed.

At last, these issues give way to RAVENCROFT #1, as the Institute reopens once again…

Ravencroft 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 the Carnage-inspired event. 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 all fall prey to the hospital's seemingly sinister nature?

"Well, apparently some jackass burnt Ravencroft down in ABSOLUTE CARNAGE VS. DEADPOOL," says Tieri. "And seeing as that jackass is me, I guess it was also up to me to build it back up. That's where RUINS OF RAVENCROFT comes in.

"What we'll learn in this event is that the original Ravencroft predates the one we know, that the very land itself that the site was built upon is soaked in blood. That there are connections to people, organizations, and events throughout Marvel history that were previously undisclosed. That in many cases, it can be said that Ravencroft is a site where evil was birthed in the Marvel U.

"Our insidious journey begins with three one-shots…starting in the 1600s with RUINS OF RAVENCROFT: CARNAGE, taking us to the 1900s in RUINS OF RAVENCROFT: SABRETOOTH, and finally RUINS OF RAVENCROFT: DRACULA, occurring during World War II.

"It all leads up to the five-issue RAVENCROFT limited series, which will see a new Ravencroft rise from the ashes…along with all the good—and yes, the bad—that'll come with it.

"You have been warned, kids…"

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
