DC Announced a new book starring Amethyst this morning. You can read an interview with the writer, Christy Marx here and here, via that article, is a look at the first image of the reimagined character.
I am truly excited about this. People keep talking about Jem, which is great, but Christy Marx is also the writer behind Sisterhood of Steel, a wonderful book that was one of the first truly queer friendly mainstream comics. She’s been a favorite of Dan’s forever, and I am glad he was able to bring her back like this.
As for Aaron Lopresti, I love that guy. When he drew Wonder Woman with me, I asked him, as I always do, what he would MOST like to draw. He said this exact stuff, barbarians, monsters, sword and sorcery…basically, he wanted to draw Amethyst.
So this is quite probably PERFECT creative team/book matching.
