    Villains Months marks the official re-telling of the origin stories of the baddies of DC. Several months back in my first wave of Batman comics diet, I read and reviewed Peter J. Tomasi's villain issues for Two Face, the Talons, Clayface and Ra's Al Ghul and they were all great especially Two-Face's which was an absolute favorite! I was really surprised to see that Layman didn't write the four villain installments themselves for his title.

Several months back in my first wave of Batman comics diet, I read and reviewed Peter J.

I was really surprised to see that Layman didn't write the four villain installments themselves for his title. In any case, I thought Fridolfs did a remarkable piece with his take on Poison Ivy's origins. The artwork by Javier Pina stood out for me well enough especially his illustrations of the hellish jungle that Poison Ivy turned Gotham into being. Absurdly enough, a Villains Month issue seems to have a standard formula which is composed of a villain walking around the city about to fall into ruins (or already in ruins) as he or she reminisces the past (several flashbacks detailing their cruel beginnings which led them to life of crime and chaos). This worked for Tomasi's Two Face tremendously well, and he delightfully subverted it with his Ra's Al Ghul issue. As for Poison Ivy: I was just okay with it. There was nothing to it that felt like a disservice to the character, but there was also hardly anything I connected with. Still, the entire issue was enjoyable because Pamela Isley was contemplative and consistent in her tale of woe. I didn't like her less when I read this which I felt the need to point out only because I also didn't like her more after finishing. It was a suitable origin story that didn't try to offer me beyond its means which is what saved its quality from dropping which it could have easily done so. I still maintain that Fabok draws Poison Ivy the most splendidly yet, and he at least illustrated the cover for his issue and look how slick it is! She's sexy and appealing but not at all trashy. That's not to say that I thought Pina did a subpar job of drawing her in the pages themselves; there were a lot of panels which I thought were lovely to look at, and his flashback sequences were had a lightness and sweetness to their color palette which certainly makes Pamela Isley's childhood look idyllic which was far from it. The thematic 'looks can be deceiving' is very much alive in that regard then. Poison Ivy after all makes a point to drive home that grain of truth as she relishes on her past aches. This is an issue I can re-read again and appreciate. It wasn't innovative but it wasn't ambitious either which was why it was overall a solid exploration of a fascinating villainess. I dare not say the same for the Harley Quinn one after this. Oh, boy, am I about to nerdrage on that one.. RECOMMENDED: 7/10 DO READ MY BATMAN COMICS REVIEWS AT:

    Ah Poison Ivy, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways.. Of all the characters in the batman universe, Poison Ivy is without a doubt my most favorite character. I'm loving her styling and costume in the new 52 series. This was a nice and more detailed look into her background, which I greatly appreciated. Wonder where I can get some of that fab green lipstick....

    Fantastic retelling of Ivy's origin during a green rampage on a Batless Gotham.

    This is the 3rd of 4 issues that I bought from Comixology.com for DC comics Buy 1 Get 1 Free sale during Cyber Monday. This is the 2nd issue of DC's Villains month titles that I've read. The most popular titles were all rebranded for issue #23. This particular issue is called both Poison Ivy #1 and Detective Comics #23.1. Javier Pina is the artist for the book. I don't like his art at all. Poison Ivy doesn't look anywhere near good enough. Part of that has to do with his art style.

Part of that has to do with his art style. The other part is the ugly design that someone came up with for all of the New 52 versions of Poison Ivy. The cover by Jason Fabok is amazing and I though that he was going to be the artist for the interior as well. He should have been because his art is far superior to Pina's. The artist that does the interior is yet ANOTHER artist that is lazy. I swear, I write this far too often lately. One panel in particular stands out as awful. Bruce Wayne sits at a desk across from a standing Pamela Isley. Bruce has no face. There is the shape of a head on a body, but it has no nose, eyes or mouth. If you can't be bothered to draw a face, I can't be bothered to pay you for any more of your work. Art gets 1 star. Derek Fridolfs' story is a stark contrast from the terrible art. Fridolfs' story gives us the much beloved Poison Ivy character that I've longed for since picking up my first New 52 title. The version of Poison Ivy in Birds of Prey just didn't work for me. She is a villain and should remain that way. She should only help the heroes in a worst case scenario for her. Only something catastrophic enough to destroy all plant life or the entire planet should be sufficient to drive her to help out heroes. This writer gets that and puts Ivy back the way she should be. This is one of the few villain origins that I've seen in the New 52, but it is one of the best of all the New 52 origins. Writing gets 5 stars. 5 star writing paired with 1 star art is a letdown. Books like that should just be written in text form. There is no need to read a comic if the art isn't good. This was a great story, but it deserved much better art.

    Could be the start of something great, if it was continuing. I love Poison Ivy and can't quite fault her for her beliefs.

    I enjoyed this. I don't know her origin at all so it was a blank slate for me.
