Poison Ivy Has A Mystery To Solve In ‘Poison Ivy: Cycle Of Life And Death’

Pamela Isley, the former Poison Ivy, has been trying to go straight. She’s stopped with the ecoterrorism and the psychoactive chemicals that let her seduce men, and is trying to contribute to human knowledge as a botanist and biologist. Unfortunately, somebody keeps bumping off her coworkers and framing her for it, so Poison Ivy is going to have to make a return, but on the side of the angels.

Amy Chu and an art team that includes Stephane Roux, Clay Mann, Ethan Van Sciver, Robson Rocha, and Julio Ferreira have had a blast riffing on the past and future of Poison Ivy, one of Batman’s more fascinating and sometimes mistreated villains. Thanks to recent takes on her, she’s no longer the hot, out of her mind redhead, but an intelligent, and sometimes extremely dangerous, supervillain. Not that she’s ditched the leaf bikini at all, mind you, but now assuming there’s little more to her than her kiss is a bad idea. Especially when she teams up with an old friend…

To see how teaming up with Catwoman goes, and whether Ivy can rescue her plant people, check out Poison Ivy: Cycle of Life and Death #4, on stands and available digitally this Wednesday.
