    Melo delivers some beautiful visuals in this issue. The characters look great and the action is thrilling and fun to see. Not only is the action stunning, but Melo captures some beautiful emotional moments. Read Full Review

    Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy #6 is undeniably a well executed book, and if there's one thing for sure, it's that this entire series will be an undisputed hit with the legion of fans who seemingly can't get enough of Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy together. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Fay Clark Feb 12, 2020

    The first 5 pages got to me and I knew then we were in for a ride. There's so much vulnerability and anger… but enough about me. Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy have been through green hell and back together, as Jody Houser has thrown some punches and grenades at them along the way. All we can do now is hope against hope that they recover and remember, it's better to be crazy together than crazy alone. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Khadjiah Johnson Feb 12, 2020

    This was one of my favorite scenes of the limited series because the creative team was able to breakdown vulnerability and anger and display it across “happy colors.” Disrupting the sadness with brightness and it felt poetic because we noticed the brightness of growth and yet sometimes bright colors are harsh on the eyes and it often disrupts our vision. This series was a great reflection of the path towards leaving things behind and sometimes that means letting someone go in order to fulfill your own healing. Read Full Review

    Not exactly what I was hoping for, but a strong finish that leaves the door open for a future reunion. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Nicholas Finch Feb 13, 2020

    This book has had a series of ups and downs for me, but it also means a lot on a personal level: this is the first series I have reviewed to its conclusion, for better or for worse (better!). I have to thank Jodie Houser and Adriana Melo for giving me so much to talk about, and for being incredibly kind enough as to notice my review of their first issue together. I can't give this book a strong recommendation, but if you're looking for an extended episode of Batman: The Animated Series that stars these two and manages to stick the landing, you can't find much better than this.

    But Why Tho? - Kate Snchez Jan 1, 1970

    Melo's art wonderful, as it has been this entire mini-series and Morales' inks are strong and defined that makes each piece of the character pop. Additionally, Hi-Fi's colors are perfection. That said, Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy #6 isn't the strongest issue of the series, instead, I can see it dividing friends of the two. Not because of Ivy's hero or villain identity but because of how they separate in the end. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Christian Hoffer Feb 12, 2020

    While Adriana Melo's art is fantastic in this issue, that's really only the compliment I can give for a miniseries that wholly misses the mark on the Harley/Ivy dynamic and feels like an attempt to "reset" the characters for whatever is coming next. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Feb 12, 2020

    After the disturbing and disgusting Heroes in Crisis, DC Comics pushed this mini-series as a rebirth for Poison Ivy.  Well, it looks like they screwed up two rebirths if my count is right!  This non-ending is a slap in the face to fans of the character and ended up feeling like the worst kind of money grab.  I liked the art in this finale, but not much else.

    Harley the best mankind has to offer Lmao

    Whatever drugs Ivy is taking she should definitely stop 😂

    Well this issue has some interesting ideas like Ivy struggling with her original goal& with her friendship with Harley ( no love story mentioned here), but the power level of Poison Ivy is just ridiculous here. Ever since Kings HIC, rather DC in Crisis she shows powers she never had before. She is way too overpowered, which only was done to appeal more to some shipper girls on Twitter, who hate 80% of Ivy’s character anyway. The result is this mess of a story.
    Instead of turning Ivy finally in the great villain she was, we get an open ending, where Harley just drives away without Ivy.
    The entire fight Iv more

    The criticism around this issue is so exhausting. Love is mentioned twice, but I guess we should all ignore common sense and dive face first into the river full of identical logs, as we all roll downstream without any individual thoughts or rationality. While we wallow in the bliss of anger and stupidity.

    I can justify the choice easily. This wasn't the real Ivy, she was only along with Harley the course of this series. Therefore she doesn't feel like the true Ivy, hence the sorrowful goodbye kiss as she disappears for good. "Cinema Sins" complaints would have also been raised about why they had time to make out while in a hurry, differentiating between a quick kiss on the lips and making out is more difficult in a still image. < more

    The ending really pisses me off. Why wont DC ever let their characters that should be together ever actually get to be together? I really like Ivy and Harley together. They are both great characters and they ground each other. Yet each time they get together it's only to get broken up again. Just like with Catwoman and Batman. They are amazing together but once again DC is breaking them up. You can feel it coming. I don't get it. These are two awesome couples that should be together. Superman and Lois get to be together so why not Bat and Cat and Harley and Ivy? At least Harley and Ivy and Bat and Cat are interesting. Lois and Superman are and have always been boring together. I like Superman but don't read it because of Lois and how boring more

    Wow, what a waste. Maybe one day Tom Taylor will fix this. Also, I couldn't hold back my laughter when they did the big splash page that comics so often do for couples. Only usually they kiss. Here, Faux-Ivy goes for a head smooch instead of a real kiss though. Maybe this was intended from the beginning, but it really felt like editorial was pulling at their collars thinking about how dangerous two women actually kissing would be and decided to make it a bit more platonic. I know a lot of people really, truly care about the Harley and Ivy relationship. I'm not one of them. Even still, I'm offended that my time was so clearly wasted.

    What started as an exciting series ends in a train wreck. I call bull on the ending, it's so obvious that an editor or intern ghostwrote this. The kissing page was cringy. Yet another DC book that delivers a, unsatisfying non ending.

    The book follows the recent trend of DC of "no ending". I guess some cokehead at DC believes this is good marketing. It's not. I've been a supporter of this book since day one. But #6 fails spectacularly in every level. Poison Ivy is shelved once more, or perhaps fridged, her relationship with Harley Quinn gone and the previous five issues readers bought as well as Ivy's death and rebirth in HiC nullified. I could give it a higher score for the wonderful act but comic books are expensive, I'm poor and this is the worst way the team could end this mini. DC absolutely shits all over their most famous Bisexual couple jut before Valentine's day. Good luck getting the support of other LGBT readers cause you definitely lost mine.

    Harley and Ivy fans got done dirty with this. Got into the series cause my gf buys it. Whether you are a shipper or not, this is a bad ending.
