DC Comics Brings LGBTQ Creative Heavy Hitters to ‘Poison Ivy: Thorns’, A Goth-girl-in-Gothic Romance Horror Story For Pride
DC Comics has big plans for Pride month this year, and the comic book giant will kick things off by giving plant-based baddie Poison Ivy, one of its most endearing LGBTQ characters, a love story to die for helmed by two LGBTQ heavy hitters.
“Poison Ivy: Thorns” brings New York Times bestselling author Kody Keplinger (“The DUFF”) and artist Sara Kipin together to craft a gothic romance focused on the budding relationship between Pamela Isley, better known as Poison Ivy, and “cute goth girl” Alice Oh. But family secrets and Isley’s strained relationship with her father threaten to shape Isley just as much as embracing love.
