It's no secret that Ivy can be very convincing, but with her newfound powers, she now has people wrapped around her finger. Janet's time at the spa goes south when Ivy uses her...persuasive powers...to blockade a petroleum processing plant. Things take a wild turn, though, when the employees become violent and Ivy must protect the women she initially set out to destroy. So much for a relaxing spa retreat!

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Apr 5, 2023

    Anti-heroes are very difficult creatures to bring to the page in a way that shows their true complexity. Poison Ivy works within the mold of an anti-hero story with the kind of depth that is rarely found in more straightforward heroic comics. Once again, Wilson, Takara, and Prianto deliver a brilliantly expressive story. Its one of the best things currently running on the comics rack for so many reasons.  Read Full Review

    The art here is also unbelievably stunning for a net effect of an issue that works on every level. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Apr 12, 2023

    It's easy for many titles to stick with what has worked and sort of follow the same paths as long as they can, but ‘Poison Ivy' #11 shows how much this creative team loves the character and world as they continue to expand it and go deeper. A truly gorgeous, powerful, emotional series that is truly a defining one for the title character. There is a reason this series has leapt to ongoing status, and if you haven't started reading it now is the time to get on board. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - tcreadscomics Apr 4, 2023

    POISON IVY #11 recaptures the energy from the series first six issues. This isnt a criticism of recent issues. But Ivy using these other women to help her agenda, gaining a new ability, and facing consequences to her actions is a reminder of the complexity that Wilson introduced in the series first arc and that hasnt been quite as prevalent since.

    AIPT - David Brooke Apr 4, 2023

    Poison Ivy #11 is a great example of how far Poison Ivy has come as she's evolved over the series. She's capable of great violence, but her morals and empathy for humanity have changed quite a bit. Add in a threat that may be closer to Ivy's world than she might like to admit, and we have a well-written issue that builds on what came before. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Apr 4, 2023

    This was supposed to be the penultimate issue of the series in the (second) original plan, so the end of the issue nicely sets Ivy up for what would have been the last stage of her journey, but it also sort of feels like Ivy learning the same lesson again. The only real problem with this series is that it has few characters who really connect with the reader outside Ivy herself, so I'm hoping when it begins its main new arc we get to see her interact more with Harley in particular.

    Don't sleep on this series. Every time I pick a new issue up to read I get so excited and thoughtful. Enjoying your time reading a comic and having a thoughtful moment after it means that the creative team is doing their jobs amazingly. This is a series I will be thinking about for a very long time to come. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Theresa Campagna Apr 4, 2023

    G. Willow Wilson has seemingly made her Ivy series bounce back. I just hope she will be able to keep this ongoing series interesting. I want to continue to get good insight on Ivy's character and her supporting cast in the future. Score: 7/10 Read Full Review
