    This is truly a glorious issue and while sure, it could be seen as "filler" in the overall story it's actually a beautiful character study and it's expertly done. Read Full Review

    There is no doubt that ‘Poison Ivy' is one of the best comic books being published right now, and this latest issue takes it to even greater levels of amazing.

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Feb 8, 2023

    The first nine issues of the series have been a movement west. Wilson seems to be teasing a similarly extended road trip east in the chapters to come. The restless road trip format has worked quite well. All of the many little episodes that fit into a cross-country drive make for a remarkably fun format that has likely never been attempted in an extended mainstream series before. The darkness of the anti-heros journey out should be mirrored by the relative levity of a potential heros journey back over the course of the NEXT nine issues if all goes well. Read Full Review

    Poison Ivy deserves a break and I'm glad Wilson's given her a mini vacation. I loved seeing my girls back together and really hope the nice wholesome, heart warming plot keeps going. Just let my girls be happy and together! I can't wait to keep going on this journey with Ivy, and you definitely won't want to miss out! Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Feb 7, 2023

    Poison Ivy #9 is a nice break for Poison Ivy as Harley Quinn enters the story for a little rest and relaxation. It's a good issue in particular, as it makes a statement about their relationship, how they work, and how they truly are perfect for each other. For fans of this relationship, you couldn't ask for a better example of why they work so damn well. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Feb 7, 2023

    This is the first issue that gave fans any real hope that it would end with Ivy going back to being an antihero, and that in and of itself makes it a win in my eyes. But the passion the creative team clearly has for the Harley/Ivy relationship is what's really going to make it a hit. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Theresa Campagna Feb 7, 2023

    I believe what we have here is another Harley and Ivy "hallmark issue. However, I'm seeing the same problems with the relationship that I always have seen. DC writers do their best to make it as ideal as possible, but an idealized relationship isn't actually a believable or relatable one. Read Full Review
