Fixing the world isn't easy work, and Ivy's all hot and sweaty because of it! Getting her hands dirty was never an issue, but when plant assassins come after her, Ivy must be willing to play dirty as well.

    ‘Poison Ivy' continues to take readers on a gorgeous yet horrifying journey deep into the character, but also deep into human emotions and issues in a truly honest and powerful way. A truly character-defining run that is being put together here, a series that everyone needs to be picking up and reading. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Aug 3, 2022

    This really just needs to keep going. Seriously. This is SUCH a cool road trip with a beautiful and gorgeously conflicted monster hero. Idaho is pretty far west, but I mean...she could head south and get in a little bit of sightseeing and infection along the Rockies. Maybe cruise through Southern California. Stroll through Gateway City and spend some time spreading spores in wine country on her way up to Seattle. I mean...she could do that, right? (I totally think she could do that.) This is too fun to end as quickly as its going to.  Read Full Review

    Poison Ivy #3 is a surprisingly intimate exploration of what it means to find hope and connection in the face of ecological disaster and insurmountable despair. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - tcreadscomics Aug 5, 2022

    There is something to nitpick here. Its somewhat unbelievable that the two women could clean this garden area in one day. Among the garbage strewn in it is a rusted-out truck with no tires and weeds growing out of its engine. I dont know how much of the detail of the gardens original state was dictated by Willow and how much was created by Takara, but it makes what is essentially a montage sequence of yardwork feel a little silly. That said, its a very minor complaint and there is a good narrative reason for Ivy to not stick around beyond a single day of work. Read Full Review

    Art and narrative combine to create a compelling story about a villain that isn't quite sure where to go. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Aug 6, 2022

    Poison Ivy remains a really strong comic with a wonderful focus on artwork and character development. This series is going a long way to all those ideas of rehabilitating Poison Ivy as a character. Read Full Review

    The best villains are deeply human and G. Willow Wilson not only gets that but writes it near flawlessly in Poison Ivy #3. Read Full Review

    G. Willow Wilson continues to give us a much darker Poison Ivy story than we're used toand one that's relentlessly compelling. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Fay Clark Aug 5, 2022

    This series just keeps ramping up the tension and getting better. Every issue I read, the more invested in the plotline and this version of Ivy I become. Throwing in a Harley moment will ALWAYS be a win for me. Can we just take a moment to ask what the last panel was about, though? I need answers and I need them now. What?! WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? They have really stepped Poison Ivy #3up. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Theresa Campagna Aug 2, 2022

    I still don't think G. Willow Wilson's Poison Ivy is a bad book. There's definitely entertaining elements here. It's just that I think this book could be so much more. Poison Ivy has so much potential to be a complex, sympathetic character, but you have to do the work to make that happen and not confuse complexity with things that are contradictory.
