Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy are on the run with the Floronic Man hot on their trail, desperate for Poison Ivy to understand her connection to the Green and join his new Parliament of Flowers. Knowing Gotham City isn't the safest place for them under the new Bane order, Harley takes a hard left down a rabbit hole to seek sanctuary with a former patient and colleague, Jervis Tetch-a.k.a. the Mad Hatter-but his wonderland home isn't all that it seems!

    But Why Tho? - Kate Snchez Oct 9, 2019

    Overall, Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy #2solidifies my opinion of the mini-series as a whole. It's one that hits on the heart of the characters by creating a real relationship. In addition, even though I have never been a fan of narratives that center villains as heroes, this one works and works well. I truly can't wait for the next issue. Read Full Review

    If Jody Houser put out an instruction manual for anything, I would read it. If Adriana Melo drew the diagrams in the book, I would posterize them. This book is what two creators at the top of their games looks like. Get it now. Get the alternate covers. Tell your friends. Read Full Review

    Adriana Melo has some great art in this issue. The emergence of Ivy with her new powers is a visual highlight in a great looking issue. Read Full Review

    Harley Quinn & Poison Ivy #2 may not be reinventing the wheel, but not every book has to. This is a super fun issue with solid artwork that is well worth your money! Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Oct 9, 2019

    This plot isn't the strongest, but Harley and Ivy are entertaining enough that it makes up for any weaknesses in what's looking like a fun road trip adventure that will give HarlIvy fans the cute moments we want " with a lot of explosions mixed in. Read Full Review

    Harley Quinn is getting a lot of play in comics these days. The work is getting to be of a higher quality with each new tale. This ranks as one of the better ones. Read Full Review

    A little less Harley and a little more Ivy can give this miniseries a little bit of a needed growth spurt. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Christian Hoffer Oct 9, 2019

    I feel like this comic is trying very hard to bring some new relevance to Poison Ivy post-Heroes in Crisis, but it's all rather confusing and ties into the increasingly muddled world of the Green, as established in Swamp Thing. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Nicholas Finch Oct 10, 2019

    I want this book to succeed! These are two characters I really like to read, from a team whose work I really enjoy. It's a shame that what I loved from issue one just wasn't as prominent in this issue, and I hope that it gets those things back in the issues to come. You could do great things with this comic, and I want to see them happen. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Scott Waldyn Oct 10, 2019

    It's unclear if this miniseries intends to have a story with legs, or if it's just a best friends road trip filled with forced appearances from characters we remember from better books. Time will tell. Read Full Review

    Part of me is beginning to wonder why this series was necessary at all. I couldn’t help but think that the story and tone feels so Harley centric, that this could have been an arc in Harley’s own ongoing.

    It is good to see Ivy back to her strong and powerful self (however short for) but it would be nice to see more interaction from Ivy. It almost feels like Harley is narrating this entire story.

    The issue does manage to create some intriguing plot points which I’m excited to explore. Especially Ivy’s connection to the green following on from the Witching War arc in Justice League Dark. I’m also curious as to how Harley, who is a trained psychiatrist, can’t seem to help her own girlfriend with her mental he more

    After the events of Heroes in Crisis it's nice to see Poison Ivy strong, proud, kick ass, sexy and alive again. This issue essentially is two stories, we see Floronics man attack on Ivy and Harley and we get the beginning of a second story with a certain "hat aficionado". The writing is very good and we see glimpses of what the future will bring to the book for both characters. I have some questions and problems with certain elements of the book but they will have to wait. It's a GORGEOUS book with Adriana Melo, Mark Morales and Hi-Fi giving some of the highest quality art you can see in a DC book with vivid colors, action and nice, detailed outlines.

    I'm just happy we have Poison Ivy back, that's all.

    No character in comics is more deserving of a real shot at a comic book monthly role than Poison Ivy, and finally we have a chance to see something, a possibility, of new growth.

    These first couple of issues have admittedly been very Harley centric, but it's clear were establishing a baseline of 'normal' before we see where they are both going, see where Ivy will end up.

    Ivy's gonna be a big deal in DC cosmology, that much is clear, and this book is our first glimpse of her baby steps.

    Let's settle in for a long journey.

    This is fine. At least Harley isn't annoying.

    "Not after Sanctuary"

    Nice art with a very mediocre story. Overall, a big "meh".
