    This issue doesn't miss a step after a long absence, and it's another creative win for the Wonder Comics line and a return to form for one of DC's most underrated heroes. Read Full Review

    Overall, Amethyst #3 took advantage of everything you would expect from a girl Amethyst's age who faces a race against time, and little room for compromise. A lot can go right under the right circumstances, though so much can go wrong too. Read Full Review

    So far I am loving this. I feel like we are where we should be in the story at the midway issue. I wonder if this would have been better served as a 9 issue series to give things like the Banned and the journey to the Opal fortress a little more room to breathe. Maybe we could have learned more about Phoss and Maxixe. But this feels like Amethyst. And that makes this old fan happy. Read Full Review

    There's a lot of development in this issue and a lot of stunning art and while the story elements are a bit messy, a bit ragged, and quite frankly A LOT to process, the book is a fun one to read, leaving you with a lot of questions as the fight makes its way to the big bad's territory at last.

    Overall, this was a passing issue in the middle of a captivating story, but by itself not telling much and with some lacks in characterization and plot holes that make us want to place it with later issues to see where the story goes. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jun 9, 2020

    I was looking forward to this series when DC announced it, and while I thought the first issue was good, things have gone downhill since.  I still enjoy Amy Reder's art, but she is not developing her characters enough, and the story is beginning to get tiresome.  Issue #4 is going to have to win me over big time for me to continue with this series.
