Ravencroft Plays Host to Absolute Carnage Spinoff

The conclusion of the Absolute Carnage event will see the launch of a series of one-shots centered on the Marvel Comics version of Arkham Asylum: The Ravencroft Institute.

Announced this morning at the Retailers Panel at New York Comic-Con, the Ruins of Ravencroft one-shots begin with the five-issue Ravencroft by writer Frank Tieri and an artist to be announced. Tieri will also helm one-shots for Carnage, Sabretooth and Dracula. Sabretooth has featured in Jonathan Hickman’s House of X, with Dracula surfacing in Jason Aaron’s Avengers.

Ravencroft follows John Jameson as he looks for redemption during the reopening of the demolished institutional center. But will Ravencroft rehabilitate the worst villains of the Marvel Universe, or provide an avenue to prey on new victims?
