    It's impressive that this series has lasted so long, and it's a testament to the character's potential as a solo lead. Read Full Review

    Poison Ivy #17 is a really good issue with a lot of furthering of the plot without neglecting any of the characterseven Janet from HR!but it does have a little wobble at the end in that it feels that it ends too quickly. Read Full Review

    As always, G. Willow Wilson continues to impress, perfectly capturing the complexities of Poison Ivy's tragic past and hopeful future, as Pamela works to hold herself accountable while fixing her mistakes in any way she can. Luana Vecchio's art is stunning, vibrant and full of life, even when depicting the rotting and deceased. While Poison Ivy's journey of redemption and growth may never end,Poison Ivy#17 is utterly successful at ushering in the final battle of Ivy's "Lamia Era," which will potentially define the hero's journey for years to come.

    While I didn't like the soap opera B plotline with an unnecessary love triangle between all three female main characters, I think we are seeing Poison Ivy frantically trying to cure her infected citizens. I have high hopes that G. Willow Wilson will stick the landing on this series when it concludes. My hopes are also to see some redemption for former villainous characters. This may not be what the standard comic reader enjoys, but I find that gray characters are the most interesting in modern comics. Read Full Review

    Ivy's not entirely a BAD book. There are still some interesting threads to follow in terms of Ivy's individual character. The artwork is always top-notch. However, I can't help but feel DC has fallen very far if this is supposed to be the best that they can offer. It's just not enough for me.Score: 7/10 Read Full Review

    There have been very few missteps in POISON IVY. To be sure, there are comparatively weaker issues. But POISON IVY #17 is the first one that doesnt work on multiple levels. If it didnt appear to be key to the ongoing story arc, it would be worth skipping. Read Full Review
