Before Ivy embarks on her trip back to Gotham, our verdant villainess sets her sights on a fungus-loving Hollywood celebrity with a lifestyle brand and spa that’s raising some major red flags on Ivy’s radar. All this because poor Janet from HR wanted to have some R&R before the car ride back east! Aw jeez!

    Character development, deep emotional moments, and something quite unexpected throwing a hitch in Ivy's plans to get back to Harley Quinn are at the center of another fabulous issue of the awesome and now fully ongoing ‘Poison Ivy' series. This tenth issue circles back to some of the elements of the first arc and builds in even more drama and tension for Ivy as she tries to figure out her place in the world now that her mission has changed.

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Mar 10, 2023

    Poison Ivy has been a triumph. A real success story. The six-issue mini-series is on its tenth issue, and there are more on the way. Sometime in February, it was announced that the series would be extended indefinitely, and...honestly, it couldnt have happened to a nicer character...or a nicer creative team. Wilson, Takara, and Prianto have been doing an amazingly sophisticated job with a character who has never really been paired with the right team before. Its nice to see Ivy getting along so well with the creative team thats been ushering her through her own title.  Read Full Review

    POISON IVY #10 suffers somewhat from Janets presence. There are possibilities for her going forward depending on how Willow further crafts the story. But in this issue she doesnt add much more than a cheerleader quality. That said, a weak issue of this series is still high quality and shouldnt be missed. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Alex Schlesinger Mar 7, 2023

    Poison Ivy #10 is an absolutely gorgeous "side quest" for Pamela and her friend Janet, exploring the misguided nature and incidental harm of toxic wellness culture, the lie of "conscious capitalism," and Poison Ivy's continued impact on the world around her. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Mar 7, 2023

    This issue feels more like a bridge between the last story and the next, and doesn't quite have the intensity of some of Wilson's best issues, but it's still building on some of the great work Wilson's done with the character over the last nine issues. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Lillian Hochwender Mar 7, 2023

    Poison Ivy #10 is every bit as smart, scary, and sexy as Ivy. However, some moments of narrative ambiguity keep it from being the best possible version of itself. Read Full Review

    Wilson is taking Poison Ivy in a direction I would not have expected, but there is potential. It's time to see if Ivy can really support an ongoing title as its sole protagonist.Score: 6.5/10 Read Full Review

    While I don't love Janet in this issue, I love the "side quest" feel of Poison Ivy #10 and all of the jabs at the "conscious capitalism" and toxic wellness movements. That is, perhaps, the absolute best part of the entirety of the Poison Ivy series how it shines a light on our culture in a really interesting way while also examining the character.
