Fans of Poison Ivy have much to look forward to in the coming months.
Poison Ivy is a popular comic book character in the DC universe, known for her abilities to control and manipulate plants, as well as her complex personality and relationships with other characters, particularly Harley Quinn. Created in 1966, Poison Ivy has since become a staple villain in the Batman comics and has been adapted into various forms of media, including TV shows and movies. With the success of G. Willow Wilson’s Poison Ivy series, DC has announced that the character will now have her own ongoing series, much to the delight of fans. This exciting news comes after the character’s initial six-issue miniseries was extended to twelve issues, and now, the series will continue indefinitely.
