May 2 was originally the release date of the final issue of G. Willow Wilson’s Poison Ivy maxi series. However, DC Comics has announced that Poison Ivy has been changed from a solicited 12-issue maxi series to an ongoing beginning in June 2023 with issue #13. The series will maintain the same creative team with G. Willow Wilson and Marcio Takara will remain as the main creative team on the title with artist Jessica Fong providing covers. Arif Prianto will stay on the title providing colors, while Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou will do letters.

This is the second time DC made changes to Poison Ivy. They originally released it as a six-issue mini series before extending it to a twelve-issue maxi series this past August. Poison Ivy is now an ongoing series.
