Marvel’s ARKHAM ASYLUM takes the spotlight in the new RAVENCROFT #1, picking up the aftermath of ABSOLUTE CARNAGE!

Third Eye Faithful: we know you fell in love with the world that Donny Cates & Ryan Stegman built with the recently concluded ABSOLUTE CARNAGE, and as such, you’re probably curious about where to go next — well, we’re gonna tell you: RAVENCROFT!

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?

With some epic tie-ins spotlighting major players from ABSOLUTE CARNAGE, as well as other sinister Marvel U bad guys — RAVENCROFT looks to be a must-read!

And after being lured into a trap on Cloud City and bested in a vicious lightsaber duel against the evil Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker…learned the horrible truth about his past. Vader did not kill Luke’s father Anakin–Vader is Luke’s father!

Now, after narrowly escaping the dark lord’s clutches, and wounded and reeling from the revelation, Luke, Princess Leia, Lando Calrissian, the Wookiee Chewbacca and the droids C-3PO and R2-D2 must fight their way back to the Rebel Alliance—for the fate of the entire galaxy is at stake! After so many losses is victory still possible?

But, what Leia, Luke and their rag tag band of freedom fighters do not realize is that they have only traded one Imperial trap for another!

Enter the cunning and vengeful Imperial Commander Zahra, at the helm of the Tarkin’s Will! Writer Charles Soule (DARTH VADER) and artist Jesus Saiz (DOCTOR STRANGE) are taking us all to the galaxy far, far away next year! With covers by RB Silva (POWERS OF X)!
