Poison Ivy was a punny nickname editor Julius (Julie) Schwartz gave me because I had some caustic things to say about certain comics. My initials being I and V make my poison pen letters into Poison Ivy.
I’ve been posting regularly for several years on the blog at www.myromancestory.com as Poison Ivy, but I am aware that the world has a few more Poison Ivys in it. Fine with me. But I’m the cool one.
