Wilson talked with Entertainment Weekly about the upcoming poison ivy series and how she plans on taking the comic in an Annihilation-like direction, with plenty of body horror, while hitting on relevant themes, including humankind’s relationship to the environment. However, for those worried DC’s best couple, Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn will be split up as Ivy embarks on a new adventure, have no fear. Wilson told EW she considers the book a “love story” and that “fans of the Harley-Ivy romance will be pleased because I think there’s no question that her relationship with Harley is now the central, defining relationship of this character.”

While Wilson stressed the comic isn’t all about love, she admitted Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn make an interesting couple in her mind because of what they’ve experienced and how they are kindred spirits, while having unpredictable chemistry that “nobody could have predicted .” From the EW interview:

“They’ve both been through a lot. They’ve both had to suffer through being manipulated by people they trusted, and that’s shaped a lot of their backstory, but neither one of them wants it to shape their future. I think both of they are actively trying to break out of past toxic relationships, and so they see really kindred spirits in each other. There’s just a certain chemistry between them that I don’t think anybody could necessarily have predicted, and that’s what makes it fun.”

While the new Poison Ivy series from DC Comics will definitely be filled with body horror and important themes, fans of the character’s relationship with Harley Quinn should be pleased and excited with Wilson’s viewpoint on their relationship. She has a great grasp of what makes the iconic couple so good together and doesn’t seem on planning to throw their romance in a loop like some other series have. That’s not to say there won’t be drama, however. harley quinn will appear in poison ivy #1 by DC Comics, which comes to comic book stores in June. The covers for the series above are by Jessica Fong and Jen Bartel.
