Dejected but determined to find her missing kingdom, Princess Amethyst and her new companions-a four-armed Turqoisian peasant called Phoss and her gigantic caterpillar steed-set out for the land of Sapphire, where it is always night. Where there is darkness there is also danger, but a newly discovered magical ability might light the princess's path.

    Coming off of a truly charming and engaging first issue Amethyst #2 continues that momentum with an issue that captures, both in words and art, the frantic feeling of helplessness Amy experiences upon discovering her entire world gone and no allies to help her. Read Full Review

    A solid follow up to #1 with big emotional weight and some adorable character moments. The story and the emotion in the art has moved me to the point I can't wait to keep following Amy, Phoss and Elba to their next adventures! Read Full Review

    This is quickly becoming one of my favourite comics to read.Amethyst #2 really had it all. Mystery, intrigue, great fight scenes, memory recalling and even some friendship. Amy Reeder is able to put so much in such a small comic and it definitely makes me want to come back for more. Until next time, keep those crystals shining. Read Full Review

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze Mar 25, 2020

    Credit where it is due that this is a book which knows how to deliver. So far this has been an adventure full of emotion, discovery, and even a bit of fun along the way. Certainly an experience you are going to get anywhere else in the DC Universe. Amethyst #2 was satisfying for everything we had to look forward to from it, and how it all further added to the investment we have in the stakes which have now been raised. Read Full Review

    Reeder's art is fantastic. All of the characters are sublimely expressive and the action is done really well. There are some great looking panels throughout and the art brings energy and life to the story. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Mar 25, 2020

    I had fun with the first issue of Amethyst, but not so much this one.  I still love Amy Reeder's art, but the story felt like we jumped issues ahead and then forced our way forward again.  The main narrative is simple enough, but the scenes telling it don't get enough time to breathe and end up not hitting as much as they should.  I hope the next issue (whenever that will be?!?) gets back to the good stuff we got from the opening issue.
