Dull, so dull. This was like reading someone's school assignment.

SO much fucking exposition and not in a good way. The art looked rushed and half-finished, and like an unpaid intern or possibly computer program had been employed to outline every damn thing in thick black lines and then quickly add some digital coloring without adding any depth. Really bad.

Not only that but I don't care for how they reverted Poison Ivy back into being a generic bat-villain all over again. I liked the character development she got with Gotham City Sirens and Birds Of Prey as she moved from being a mwa ha ha ha ha villain into a morally conflicted character.

Enjoyed this one. Some characters are perfect as troubled villains, like she was displayed here in this one, and don't have to do the good guy thing. Glad she's off the BOP book and glad she backs to what she's best as.

When you're as good as Chael, you can only call out people worse than you.

Never been a huge Poison Ivy fan, as far as villains go. But I do like the approach to her costume in these. Simple and bold. As for the story, I guess I don't really have thoughts on that.
