Hello and welcome back to the World of Bats, the Batman Book Club!
This week, with Earth Day coming up, who better to talk about than one of Batman’s most eco-friendly super-villains, Poison Ivy?
So to highlight this character, we’ll be exploring two different stories with her. First, we’ll be jumping a little forward in our exploration of Tom King’s Batman run (don’t worry, we’ll be going back and filling in the gaps later!) and reading Batman #41-43, “Everyone Loves Ivy,” with art by Mijal Janin.
“EVERYONE LOVES IVY” part one! Mikel Janin returns to BATMAN for a brand-new epic! Pamela Isley’s influence can spread as far as vegetation will allow, putting the whole world at her fingertips. Can Batman and Catwoman stand their ground against an entire planet of Poison Ivys?
And if you’re looking for more Ivy content, check out this one-shot graphic novel “Batman: Poison Ivy,” written by John F. Moore and drawn by Brian Apthorp!
“POISON IVY.” When a Gotham businessman destroys Ivy’s island paradise, she sets out to destroy everything he loves, no matter whom she has to kill to do it.
The reading will go from 2021-04-17T05:00:00Z → 2021-04-23T05:00:00Z, though if you read these later and come back, that’s cool too!
So share your thoughts below! What do you think of these two different takes on Ivy?
