SPOILERS: Poison Ivy: Cycle of Life and Death #5

Okay, maybe I was off on my Swamp Thing prediction, but given the solicitation for the final issue, can't blame a guy for trying... Instead we get a far less interesting last page... Yay?

The Spoilers:

This issue sees Ivy's "children" having grown to young adults, and become restless given Ivy won't let them out into the world. So, doing as young people do, the three children sneak out and make their way to a Gotham strip club for a little fun, and of course it ends in a big commotion, which draws Ivy to them, allowing her to bring them home. While Ivy "grounds" the three girls, she goes to commune with the green for advice and is attacked by the big bark monster, whose voice she recognizes as the old guy who apparently died second.

The Opinion:

You know, I don't know. I realize I don't point this out every single time, but it'd be nice if comics figured out a way to end issues on a more interesting note than a big splash page of the enemy we all know is there the whole time, attacking. I'm not even going to address the questions I have in terms of how, because as villains go, there's nothing that has interested me about big bark monster who was a Dr that wanted Ivy's plans or something. Cue Swamp Thing tag in as solicit would suggest, cue girls maybe getting the boot, wrap it up, call it a day. This book started off real strong but the stuff with the lab Ivy worked for, the kids and Bark Thing is just very uninteresting to me.
