Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy have had it up to here with the Floronic Man's attacks, and now they're ready to bring the fight to him. The only problem is...they don't know where to find him! So they seek out the help of Batwoman-who's hesitant to believe in the good intentions of former villains.

    But Why Tho? - Kate Snchez Jan 8, 2020

    Truthfully, Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy #5is a fun read, but it's at its best when it's showing us the characters' relationships. That being said, the art and colors from Melo, Morales, and Hi-Fi are vibrant and dynamic. This miniseries is just happy, it's joyful, and it's fun and that's all it needs to be. With one issue left, the reveal of a hidden baddie at the end of the issues sets up for a killer last issue next month and I'm excited to pick it up. Read Full Review

    What a last page. That will be pretty amazing next month. I can't wait. If you have not read this series, you really should be. You have 28 days to get caught up. Go. Read. Enjoy. Read Full Review

    The ending is a head-scratcher, a big twist that seems like it might be too big to resolve with only one issue left. But an ambitious final issue is a good sign that DC is ready to build on the success of this series and give us more of these two as a pairing. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jan 8, 2020

    While I still have hopes for something special, this book seems content to coast to the finish line.  Jody Houser throws obstacles at our heroes, but they just seem to be there to take up time and space and so, never feel like a real threat.  The art by Adriana Melo is great and the cliffhanger promises so craziness next issue.

    Batman-News - Nicholas Finch Jan 9, 2020

    This book is a good time if you want to relax and read something that's low-stakes, fun and wholesome " however wholesome former villains turned sort-of-heroes can be. I just don't think this issue in particular is completely solid, and I hope that the final issue has the development time it needs to be a satisfying conclusion. Read Full Review

    Sadly, this comic seems to exist only to exist, which is a shame given the strong creative team. Read Full Review

    There is great chemistry between the collaborators of the book and that is visible. Adriana Melos art is astounding and gorgeous adding small cartoony details, like i.e a heart when Ivy and Harley hold hands, that enhance the emotional impact of the book. It's been a long road for both heroines and hopefully they acn find some peace of mind after beating Floronic Man and the new, weird threat that has emerged (no spoilers here).

    Hi-Fi and Mark Morales complete the book in a way that flatters Adriana's art. There is good chemistry here. Everything feels tight and colourful and theres a unique style in the artwork that deviates from the usual superhero art giving it a subtly dreamlike or cartoony quality. Without of course taking a more

    This isn't very good. It's fine. It just really feels pointless, and it's not very fun at all.
