    Another solid issue. Hope we start getting into the meat of the story next issue though, these past two have been more set-up and character work than anything. Good set-up and character work, but I need something more at this point. I do like the motivations Ivy has been given, it makes sense after Fear State.

    3.5 stars I'm continuing to like how Ivy is written here, clearly as villain but you understand her. 3.5 stars I'm continuing to like how Ivy is written here, clearly as villain but you understand her.

    Beautiful art and a good balance of storytelling between the words and the panels. The Pam I hear in my head as I read sounds wistful and a little sad. :( I don't really understand what happened with the cops. I mean, I do, but if they were there for the poet and not her, why not infect them all and let them take her to a place with more people to infect? Ivy's line about blue-eyed criminals hits at that sentimental melancholy, but for the overall story, her decision doesn't make as much sense f Beautiful art and a good balance of storytelling between the words and the panels.

I like the "mystery" that's building up and that Ivy can't sense it. Or maybe she is sensing it but that's part of what she thought she lost. Interesting. I enjoy her stories because you can go deep with them if you want to, even with crystal clear messaging. ;)

    I really liked the first issue of this series. It got me into the character with clever dialogue and stunning art. Dialogue and art are just as impressive in the second issue. Unfortunately, the second issue was harder to read. I don't know much about the characters and their history in the DCU. I like the Poison Ivy character, and the characterization was great. Rhere are several references to continuity that I didn't really understand. By the middle, I already felt lost in the story. I'll give I really liked the first issue of this series.

Hopefully there's enough explanation that I can follow the story without a deep understanding of the DCU.

    Okay, this is the second issue I’ve ever read with Poison Ivy. She’s obviously a villain, but a villain with a heart, kinda? She is no anti hero (I would totally be a anti hero). But I mean it’s hard to to sympathize with her with the girl in the diner. Idk. It’s character development for sure. I love it! I do wish I knew more about the back story as to why she ended up here. Anyway. Good series. Bravo Ivy, be my wife?

    This series is insanely good so far. The art is incredible. The characterization of Poison Ivy as villain/hero of nature is done so well. I love how she clearly has compassion and humanity, but also does what she feels needs to be done despite that. This series is my first real introduction to Ivy (with the exception of cameos in Batgirl 2016 and Harley Quinn 2021) but I don't feel lost, the hints to things that happened to her are enough to paint the picture even for me.

    Outstanding tale G. Willow Wilson is a terrific writer! She's very talented at putting the reader in the character's head. Poison Ivy wants to destroy the human race. Genocide, they call that. But Willow lets the reader understand Ivy, and why she wants to do the deed. She is so good that even Ivy becomes sympathetic. BRAVA! Outstanding tale G. Willow Wilson is a terrific writer!

    I just read the first 2 issues and I'm enjoying this so far. I like how they show ivy's thought process throughout and her doubts about what she's doing. I think I would enjoy it alot more if this wasn't the first comic I've read with ivy in except for the eat bang kill tour but I have a good enough understanding of what's happening.

    I'm trying to figure out if there is an actual narrative here or if this is more of a character study. The art is great though. I'm trying to figure out if there is an actual narrative here or if this is more of a character study. The art is great though.

    Awesome pacing. Beautiful graphics. A dark horror of a story but still somehow bright. I can't wait for the rest of the series! Awesome pacing. Beautiful graphics. A dark horror of a story but still somehow bright. I can't wait for the rest of the series!

    Some of this hardcore eco terrorist stuff is hard to reckon with but this was a great issue. Good on Ivy for making quick work of those cops.

    This continues to be my new favorite run in comic books. Thank gods for Ivy finally getting back to her eco-terrorism villain roots.

The bulk of this issue takes a small break from her journey as Ivy stops off at a roadside diner. She gets to know a few of the people that she meets, including a beautiful female thief who reminds her of Harley a little, as well as a kindly cook who seems full of joy. Whilst this all seems lovely, it has a very sinister edge, as Ivy intentionally infects everyone in the diner with spores that will eventually cause horrific deaths for everyone there. She even makes note of the fact that she infects a family with what seem like cute, well behaved kids. It's kind of one of the more disturbing things I've read in a while from DC. I'd mentioned in my previous Poison Ivy review that the book has a horror vibe to it, and that felt very present here too, though in a more subtle and insidious way. In our modern world it's hard to see Ivy as a villain, she makes some great points about how fucked the world is and how humans are to blame. how can you see someone wanting to stop mass global destruction as evil? Getting her to cause the awful deaths of lovely people who haven't done anything wrong is a good way I suppose. Though, we don't see these deaths. They're not confirmed. So there could be room to this to be stopped, for Icy to change her mind or to be prevented from activating her spores within these people. But honestly, I'm not sure if the book is going to go that way or not. and I love that ambiguity, that we don't know yet is Ivy is going to become a merciless child killer or not. I really enjoyed getting into her head in this issue, and seeing the way that she sees the world. I particularly liked it when she went into if she was vegetarian or not, and explained some of how mass farming for vegetarians and vegans actually cause more environmental damage than eating meat; a lesson I think a lot of veggies and vegans refuse to learn because they, like Ivy says, get off on feeling like they're doing good by not eating chicken. This was a great issue for getting to know this character, for seeing how her mind works, and for getting some big stakes put on the table. It's not always a comfortable read, but this book remains a fascinating one for sure.
