    It's been a while since DC went into the high-fantasy genre, and Reeder is doing an amazing job of building on the excellent work past creators have done with Amethyst. The Wonder Comics line continues to be the place DC is putting out some of its most daring books. Read Full Review

    I have no idea what's going to happen next. I'll be honest and say that I was convinced this plot line was almost wrapped up. Boy, was I wrong! Amethyst #4 just kept throwing me through loop after loop. Amy Reeder knows where she wants Princess Amethyst to end up, and I cannot wait to get there. With only a few issues left… I'm super intrigued to see how this is all going to end. Read Full Review

    Amy Reeder's art and how it relates to the emotional narrative highlights this story every time, and it's what ultimately makes it appealing and engaging, even when I find it with lack of variance or other plots different than the main one: Amy's journey of disillusion and facing the real world.
