Destroying humanity is a lot of work, and a girl's gotta eat! On her journey to doom humankind, Ivy makes a pit stop at a roadside restaurant, where she meets a hungry poet who makes her question her motives-at least until the cops show up. Ivy has left Gotham, but she can't seem to escape the law!

    But Why Tho? - Marina Z. Jul 5, 2022

    Poison Ivy #2 is as much a thrilling story of Ivy's final plan as it is a timely reminder of the very real environmental catastrophe the world is facing. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Jul 13, 2022

    DC Comics' eco-horror series continues to showcase both the darkness but also humanity that remains within Poison Ivy, even as she moves closer and closer to the completion of her murderous final plan. This is one of the best dark character studies around, full of powerful emotion, darkness, and gorgeous yet terrifying horror to be found. Read Full Review

    It's complex, it's interesting, and the more Ivy questions herself, the more it reveals about ourselves. This is a fantastic issue; I don't know how the series will top it. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Jul 6, 2022

    I continue to be impressed by this ecologically themed narrative. Wilson boldly dives into topics such as veganism and global warming and frames them in a straightforward manner. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jul 13, 2022

    The road trip might have a little bit more of a sense of place and intensity if the specifics of Ivy's route were covered in a bit more detail, but the series would lose a great deal of the restless resignation of the main character. She honestly doesn't care where she is. She's driving to her own death on the west coast, hoping to wipe out most of the human race. There's a sad beauty about it: Wilson and company hit home gorgeously in the second issue.  Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jul 5, 2022

    It's exciting to get such a strong series in the voice of a villain like Poison Ivy. Not only that, it makes strong points about why Poison Ivy would kill and harm in the name of getting her mojo back, but also saving the world while doing it. It's not hard to relate to her while also feeling a bit unnerved by her killing ways. It's everything you'd want in a supervillain series Poison Ivy is complex as you hang on her every word.

    The Comicbook Dispatch - kcscribbles Jul 5, 2022

    Poison Ivy #2 continues Poison Ivy's quest to destroy mankind, and gives us a better look into her psyche than any story is provided before. Though it looks like it's dangerously close to devolving into another zombie epic, hopefully, G. Willow Wilson will avoid that and continue making Poison Ivy so fascinating that Batman fans will be saying "Joker who? in the future. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jul 5, 2022

    Poison Ivy's slow, terrifying trip through the heartland as she plans the extinction of humanity continues this issue, with a haunting issue that makes the themes of the story a little clearer than the disturbing first issue did. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Theresa Campagna Jul 5, 2022

    Poison Ivy #2 is less a big advancement to the story and more of a musing over who Ivy's character is, taking into consideration how she's seen by many today. Wilson still generally has a good voice for Ivy, but some story missteps make me wonder if this miniseries will ultimately be worthwhile. Read Full Review
