Looking for a link in a comment January 13, 2014 7:46 PM   Subscribe

I was talking to a friend about comics and got onto the subject of Poison Ivy, and recalled this really disturbing page with Ivy casually talking to a man her giant pitcher plant is slowly dissolving. It's just horrifying, and it was a link in someone's comment. I've tried using the search here and Google, and I guess I'm not hitting the right keywords. Does the comment ring a bell for anyone? Thanks!

Hmm, not a pitcher plant, but this is what came to mind for me.

She's not talking to him, but is it this panel from Catwoman #83 (January 2010)?

Nope. Wasn't a villain. Just a normal guy. He was kind of out of it and mumbling something like, "I can't feel my legs." Ivy was leaning against the plant.

I believe you want Detective Comics #823. It features dialog between Pam and someone in a pitcher plant with the "I can't feel my legs" line. Memailed you.

Yes. I was just coming here to say that. The almost girlishly curious peep over the lip is this great, subtle touch that vaults the whole thing straight into the howling fantods. That's the stuff.
