    I particularly love the idea that there is beauty in acknowledging the horrors of our reality and a gorgeousness and finding humanity in unexpected places. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Jan 5, 2023

    ‘Poison Ivy' #8 continues to build off its stellar opening story arc, showcasing even deeper character growth and moments for the protagonist as well as those around her. Truly gorgeous energetic ecological horror meets the beauty of humanity without losing any of its edge as a sharp justified finger continues to point at the broken system that plagues our world daily. This is a comic book with a lot to say and everyone needs to be listening to what it has to say. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jan 4, 2023

    Wilson has found a very sharp niche for Poison Ivy that rather brilliantly occupies space somewhere between drama and comedy and horror and action and heroism and...anti-heroism. The real genius is that she does all of that while delivering a coherently simple story that is totally accessible to just about any reader. Wilson has a very, very appealing relationship with Pam. It will be fun to see it develop in future issues.  Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jan 3, 2023

    Poison Ivy #8 continues to show this series is rightfully one of the most important superhero books on the stands today. It conveys real-life issues in easy-to-understand and relatable ways while further humanizing Ivy. Along the way, we see the good and the bad humanity brings, and like with Poison Ivy, we tend to lean towards the good being the winner of the debate. It just requires Poison Ivy to do horrific things to a lone toxic person. Read Full Review

    This story, featuring a guest artist who excels in the truly bizarre, has largely been a bridge between the first arc of Poison Ivy and the next. Read Full Review

    At this point in the review, it's clear that my favorite part was Janet from HR. I that we get to see more of her in the coming issues, even if it's just short snippet updates. Ivy still has a long way to go on her journey and I know she will make it a good one. Everything about her in this series has come from an intellectually stimulating place. She isn't just a villain and I hope people realize the layers she has as a character, assisted by the fantastic writing style of G. Willow Wilson. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Theresa Campagna Jan 4, 2023

    This chapter of Poison Ivy was more readable than the last, but at the same time, problems with the dialogue and artwork are increasing. I also am not exactly sure what this book is building towards anymore with its story of Ivy as being more heroic. It seems like it would have been better if DC kept this to six issues.
