Amethyst #1, which is both written and illustrated by Amy Reeder, is set to hit shops Feb. 26 from DC Comics, and now the publisher has shared a first look.
Amethyst is a six-issue miniseries that was first announced this past year at NYCC. It’s part of the Brian Michael Bendis-helmed Wonder Comics teen imprint, and it looks to feature a new take on its titular character, who has been appearing of late in the team book, Young Justice.
The preview artwork is fun and all kinds of colorful, joining the rest of the Wonder Comics line in bringing a lighter sort of superhero take to the mainline DC superhero universe. Anyway, you can check out the fully-lettered preview artwork along with all six of the miniseries’ covers below after the jump!
Following the character’s triumphant reintroduction in the pages of Young Justice, the new Amethyst series from DC’s Wonder Comics follows teenager Amy Winston, a.k.a. Princess Amethyst, eager to return to her magical kingdom. Instead, she finds it in ruins, her subjects vanished, and none in the realm of Gemworld still loyal to her house. To solve this mystery, restore House Amethyst, and save her family, Amy must find new allies and confront dark secrets on a deadly quest to the farthest reaches of Gemworld.
In this this six-issue mini-series launching in February, writer and artist Amy Reeder takes on a magical world tour complete with dreamy landscapes, fantastical creatures, crystalline visions, breathtaking kingdoms, and one very bad guy named Opal.
But it wouldn’t be complete without new friends to share it all with. With the help of Phoss, a four-armed warrior, and Maxixe, a stubborn prince, Amy comes to realize that what’s good and bad in Gemworld is not always crystal clear.
DC’s newest Wonder Comics title, Amethyst, arrives on February 26th by writer and artist Amy Reeder (Batwoman, Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, Rocketgirl)!
