Life. Death. Poison Ivy has power over both. But can she keep her friends and hold down a regular job at the same time? As Dr. Pamela Isley, she joins the prestigious plant sciences department at Gotham Botanical Gardens, but things quickly get complicated when a fellow scientist is murdered and it looks like the work of Ivy. Don’t miss the start of this new 6-issue miniseries!

**I received a free eARC from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review**

In this series, Poison Ivy gets a new job at the Gotham Botanical Gardens thanks to her new mentor Luisa Cruz.

We see her struggling trying to be a "normal" person, which she finds very difficult to do, since she doesn't feel like one. She's part human, part plant. A loner who is better off being by herself. Although she wouldn't mind having someone like her around.

Her good friend Harley Quinn also makes an appearance and gives us a little bit of action picking up a fight with some perverts.

I love Harley, I hope we get to see more of her in this new series. And both girls looked amazing. The art and the color palette are very beautiful, the artists did a wonderful job.

There's not that much going on in this issue, but since it's just the first one in a mini-series, it was a great introduction. It also ends with a mysterious murder at Ivy's new workplace, and I can't wait to see what happens next :)

Have you read any comic books lately?

Thank you for reading! Bye-Bye! 


  1. Poison Ivy has always been a villain I just loved so much! I think it is because I love her power so much as well. I don't know too much about Harley Quinn as well, so it would be brilliant to get to know her better seeing as she features so much.

    1. Yes, her power is very interesting! :D
      I really love Harley Quinn, I can't wait til Suicide Squad comes out, she looks amazing there!!

  2. I've never read a comic! Got any recommendations on what to start with?

    1. Well, I usually enjoy reading comic books featuring female main characters, maybe because I can relate to them more? Harley Quinn is pretty fun, and the good old Wonder Woman is always a good choice :) Neil Gaiman's Sandman is apparently very good, I actually own some issues but haven't read them yet though.
      You can also check out the New 52 that DC created not long ago, it was a relaunch of their entire line of comic books, and the stories are pretty cool :D

  3. I haven't read a graphic novel in a while. :( This one looks pretty good though. Poison Ivy is interesting.

  4. I have never read a comic book, I need to really as they look really good and I enjoy Manga books and that's pretty similar.

    Meme xx

    1. I actually started reading manga before comics, they're so good <3
