Review: Ruins of Ravencroft: Sabretooth

Ruins of Ravencroft: Sabretooth

So far, the Ruins of Ravencroft series has been interesting. Each one-shot has revealed the history of the classic Marvel location. Ruins of Ravencroft: Sabretooth adds in some more history folding in three high-profile mutants, Wolverine, Sabretooth, and Mr. Sinister.

Taking place in 1909, Nathaniel Essex is a doctor at the facility and Victor Creed an orderly. The two are running experiments on individuals, one of which is Logan who’s lobotomized.

Writer Frank Tieri has been doing an interesting job folding in different corners of the Marvel Universe into this location. There’s clearly bigger plans for it with so much attention being focused on currently. What those plans are, are a bit unclear. Much like the previous issue, this one feels like it’ll be a bit more vital and important once the big picture is revealed.

Tieri does a good job weaving together the two time periods. The modern day exploration of the building allows us to learn more of its past. There’s a layering of new information and Marvel fans should enjoy the winks and nods to Marvel history. There’s a lot briefly touched upon that can be expanded elsewhere. There are some issues in that history in that it looks like Logan as his metal claws which should came at a later time. So, not everything is perfect but that could be an art issue.

Angel Unzueta and Guillermo Sanna handle those duties with one handling the past and the other the present. Along with Rachelle Rosenberg on color and Travis Lanham on lettering, the art is fun with this one. Even with the small Logan claws issue, there’s a lot presented in brief panels that capture Marvel history. The art delivers the hints as to what happened to expand on Tieri’s plot and dialogue. Skrull invasion, the American Revolution, and an early Ghost Rider are all shown. The art for each creates excitement to see more. The modern art delivers a creepy ambiance that fits the story creating a horror unease.

The comic is an interesting one much like the previous Ruins of Ravencroft issue. Ruins of Ravencroft: Sabretooth brings in mutants to the story creating an even more intriguing history of the institute. There’s a lot going on here and we probably won’t know what that is until the end but right now, the exploration of Ravencroft’s history is delivering a mystery that has me intrigued.
