EXCLUSIVE: Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy Series Spins Out of Heroes in Crisis

Heroes in Crisis' finale changed more than Wally West's position in the DC Universe; the series also reframed Harley Quinn's relationship with those around her and reinvented Poison Ivy... literally.

In the final issue of the event miniseries, the previously dead Poison Ivy was reborn, having merged her essence with a rose seed she gave Harley to plant. The rose grew into an incubating pod, and a new, plant-based Ivy was born. Now, the two best friends will attempt to regain their bearings in Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, by Jody Hauser and Adriana Melo.

The six-issue miniseries arrives on September 4, and unlike Harley's solo title, which often exists in its own Coney Island-based reality, will be firmly based in the main DCU continuity. The solicitation text promises that the pair's arc will be affected not only by their new, post-Sanctuary status quo, but by the recently launched Year of the Villain event. And, judging by the first issue's cover (illustrated by Elena Casagrande), another one of DC's plant-based entities will be keeping a close eye on both of them.
