    The moving parts of the movie:

    Three plot threads: Harley getting chased by angry people, Roman chasing Cassandra (and the diamond), and Huntress's vendetta.

    Each of the five Gotham City Spice Girls have a different relation to Roman, and to each other, and each of them reach and make their decisions independently.

    Tale told out-of-order, with several flashbacks.

    Plot-wise, this was seriously complex. It only appears simple because it was executed so well.

    As I understood it from rumors, the "sequel" would be Gotham City Sirens.

    Gotham City Sirens is definitely one of those things I thought I would like a lot more than I actually did. The characters are very different thematically and so bringing them together is a case of the whole being less than the sum of its parts. None of them work particularly well as supporting characters, so it tends to be more a case of competing storylines fighting for panel space rather than an developing a compelling team dynamic. And you know that a film adaptation will try to turn Harley into the lead which just seems weird given that she's silly comic relief of the trio.

    Batman Tales: Once Upon A Crime has two fun Poison Ivy appearances, and the one in the final story of the collection is gorgeous.

    Also, Vines and Roses #1 dropped today. As an old faned of paper fanzines (though at the tail end of their time) and sf fan it looks and reads a bit odd to me as a fanzine, but no matter. I recommend downloading the PDF.

    (Fanzines to me implies a very strong authorial voice and presence and a strong focus on communication with readers and other faneds. But I'm the first to admit that classical fanzine culture is long dead and gone now.)

    Interview with Stjepan Sejic over at Newsarama. Includes various pieces of concept art, but I think everything of that has been published over on his twitter or on DeviantArt.

    But it contains a major piece of nice news for Poison Ivy!

    Šejic: My plan is to produce Isley before the second Harleen story arc. My reasoning is two-fold.

    First, I have a very cool story to tell about Harleen’s version of Poison Ivy. A truly epic tale that will be both a visual and a narrative joy. If Harleen was more of a psychological thriller. this one will be more of a blockbuster with a lot of heart.

    The second reason is, I want people to truly understand the actual glorious mess that Poison Ivy is. It plays into her evolving relationship with Harley and really fleshes out her motivations.

    So is the series greenlit? Does Sejic have free reign to do Isley after the success of Harleen? I'm confused.

    No idea. The "Harley & Joker" damned well ought to be greenlit (the HC is #1 on Amazon for superhero comics & graphic novels, and #14 for all comics & graphics novels, including beating a lot of Kindle editions), but I think Sejic would prefer to do "Isley" first.

    On the other hand, I think he wouldn't speak like that if he didn't have it pretty much in the bag from DC's side. But the man is busy with his own stuff as well, but if I were DC I'd give the man a hefty advance in order to move things along, and just let him tell the stories he wants to tell.
