    Amy Reeder has remade the story of Amethyst. A story grounded in the concepts of the original series from the 80s and the recent inclusions from books like young justice. Reeder uses the established backstory as a launchpad. As a result, the story of Amethyst reaches new heights. Read Full Review

    Everything was brilliantly wrapped up, and amazingly drawn. The plot was great in it's final hurrah, and everything fell into place really well. We were taken on a rollercoaster of emotions that defiantly hit us right in the feels. I will sorely miss reading Amy Reeder's work, but I'd be very happy to return to Gemworld with Princess Amethyst anytime. Read Full Review

    I was overall satisfied with the conclusion of Amethyst #6. This book right here is an underrated gem from the DC Universe, and I couldn't help but find myself hopefully that some day this book sees a continuation. Read Full Review

    Amethyst #6 came last week, just about 4 months since the last issue was put on the shelves. As such, any momentum the book had obtained in that last issue was blunted by the passing of real time. If any book needed a recap page or a page of exposition to catch me back up. Instead, the book picks up basically in the middle of the action. It is hard to know how I would have felt if this came out on time. But I can tell you that reading it now, it felt like a little bit of a rush to the end. A lot happens here, too quickly. And while writer artist does leave us with the possibility of a new direction for our Princess, I don't know if a sequel is on the horizon.And it is bit of a shame. I feel like Reeder's art is just wonderful. (I have been a longtime fan.) In particular, I think her work is perfect for the Gemworld. But the story unspooled oddly over the six issues. Some scenes went on too long, others two short. I would love to see Reeder given another book of Amethyst as artist Read Full Review

    Amy Reeder's done some outstanding work, both story and art, on Amethyst as a whole and this issue certainly drives that home as well with a book that may not be the most polished in terms of the way it wraps up its story, but is visually gorgeous in every possible way. Read Full Review

    This series was one of the JUST okayest reboots I've ever read for...anything. For one its KIND of mean-spirited in changing literally EVERYTHING about Gemworld as a traditional fantasy towards a more darker morality tale, as well as Amy's origin. "Oh hey, you know how we told you you're the savior of Gemworld and your birth parents were good people! JK-everything you knew is a lie because GENRE SUBVERSION!"

    And don't get me started on the pointless "Science fantasy" aspect, which is barely touched on in the series. Amaya SAYS its more like science than Earth magic, but never actually EXPLAINS the science! Just friggin' say its magic, CHRIST.

    And maybe I wouldn't take offense if this were an original title, but in pre more

    This has to be one of the biggest disappointments to me all year. This reminds me of the 90s' Adam Strange which flips everything you knew about Rann and Sardath on it's head. This in a way retcons the original series so that the whole reason Amy ever goes to Gemworld is for corrupt reasons and it just doesn't add anything, if anything it makes it worse. I do not like Amy Reeder as a writer, idk why that should come as a surprise to me now either after reading her Moongirl.
