Amethyst is back in a new graphic novel! Amaya was a DC hero introduced back in 1983 and since then has had a few reboots and reintroductions in the hero universe. Here is how she looked in the 80’s and a few of her reimaginings since then.
This time around Amethyst is geared to more of a middle school audience, for the ages between 8 and 12. The new novel is written by Shannon Hale and Dean Hale the duo behind Diana: Princess of The Amazons and the most recent Squirrel Girl series. The beautiful artwork is done by Asiah Fulmore.
Here is a blurb about the new series.
Amaya, Princess of House Amethyst in Gemworld, is something of a troublemaker. She and her brother have great fun together until a magical prank goes much too far and her parents ground her…to Earth! They hope a whole week in the mundane world will teach her that magic is a privilege…and maybe washing dishes by hand will help her realize the palace servants should be respected.
Three years later, Amy has settled into middle school and ordinary life. She doesn’t remember any other home. So when a Prince of the Realm brings her home and restores her magical destiny, how will she cope?
The first issue of the series will be released on November 9, 2021.
