SHRIEKING, Part 1 of 4: BEHIND THE WALLS. ($2.95 cover price with gold ink background on cover.) (Originally polybagged with a 16-page preview of the Spider-Man cartoon series and a color animation style print of Spidey versus Venom.) At the Ravencroft Institute for the criminally insane, Dr. Kafka has a new patient: Shriek. Oh no, be careful with her. Unfortunately, the well-intentioned doctor makes a huge mistake when she brings Malcolm MacBride (aka Carrion) into view of Shriek's holding cell. Once the tormented villainess sees her son (from the Maximum Carnage saga), she shatters her cell and breaks out of Ravencroft. Just what Spidey needed...another crazy person on the loose. The wall-crawler will attempt to rein in Shriek next issue.
