The good news is that thanks to the foundation laid down by Dr. Pamela Isley's research into the longevity of certain kinds of trees, there's now a new treatment for otherwise incurable diseases that can extend someone's lifespan and help them manage, or even eradicate their health problems. The bad news is that all of this is happening in the DC Universe, so it's a treatment that turns you into a giant murderous plant monster that needs to eat stem cells to survive. Side effects, am I right?

Either way, it's a consequence that Poison Ivy is going to have to face when the Grim --- the aforementioned tree monster --- shows up to eat her super-powered sporeling children in the climax of Poison Ivy: Cycle of Life And Death. Check out a preview below!

 

 

If you haven't been keeping up with the series, it began as a murder mystery at Poison Ivy's new job at the Gotham Botanical Gardens, and just kept building from there as she created the sporelings. Now, those two plot threads are coming together at last.

And here's the official solicitation:
