(W) J. M. DeMatteis & Various (A) Sal Buscema & Various (CA) In-Hyuk Lee
Things take a dark turn as we celebrate the 80th anniversary of the House of Ideas with the era-spanning MARVEL TALES! This anthology series shines a spotlight on fan-favorite characters, features timeless stories and highlights some of our most impressive talent from the past eight decades. This time we're focusing on the Ravencroft Asylum for the Criminally Insane - and some of its deadliest inmates! First, Spidey legends J.M. DeMatteis and Sal Buscema introduce Ravencroft founder Dr. Ashley Kafka in the psychological SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN (1976) #178! The asylum's most famous resident, Cletus "Carnage" Kasady, wreaks havoc in SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED (1993) #1 - the first chapter of the epic Maximum Carnage! And modern masters Dan Slott and Stuart Immonen take things to a whole new level of crazy in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN (2015) #798 - where Norman Osborn plus the Carnage symbiote equals...the Red Goblin!
