Get a First Look at Poison Ivy: Thorns by Kody Keplinger and Sara Kipin
Just in time for Pride Month, DC has tapped acclaimed author Kody Keplinger and artist Sara Kipin to reimagine Poison Ivy—one of DC’s most popular antiheroes—in Poison Ivy: Thorns, a new teen romance with a gothic-horror twist.
There’s something unusual about Pamela Isley––the girl who hides behind her bright red hair. The girl who won’t let anyone inside to see what’s lurking behind the curtains. The girl who goes to extreme lengths to care for a few plants. Pamela Isley doesn’t trust other people, especially men. They always want something from her. Something she’s not willing to give.
When cute goth girl Alice Oh comes into Pamela’s life after an accident at the local park, she makes Pamela feel like pulling back the curtains and letting the sunshine in. But there are dark secrets deep within the Isley house. Secrets Pamela’s father has warned must remain hidden. Secrets that could turn deadly and destroy the one person who ever cared about Pamela, or as her mom preferred to call her…Ivy.
Will Pamela open herself up to the possibilities of love, or will she forever be transformed by the thorny vines of revenge?
Poison Ivy: Thorns marks both Keplinger and Kipin’s first graphic novel and first work with DC. It features colors by Jeremy Lawson and lettering by Steve Wands. The book is available to preorder now and hits stores everywhere books are sold on June 1, 2021.
