AMETHYST #1 by Jon McNally

Jonathan McNally is an artist residing in Portland, Oregon. You can see more of his work at and

Jon says: Much time has passed since young Amy Winston was a mere Princess of Gemworld. In her desperate struggles against the tyrant Dark Opal, the Flaw and the Child, and the archsorcerer Mordru, Amy drew upon the planet’s limitless energies, becoming an avatar of Gemworld itself. Now, a lifetime away from Earth, Amy shields the inhabitants of Gemworld from menaces beyond time and space. She is AMETHYST, GODDESS OF GEMWORLD.

Amethyst was created by Dan Mishkin, Gary Cohn and Ernie Colón . Read more...


  1. Once again, a concept that I would normally not be super-interested in, but would be rushing to the store to buy based on McNally's work. DC Comics, surely you're aware of this blog! Put these creators to work!

  2. Amethyst was my choice to take over the fantasy and comics aimed more squarely at girls niches of the nuDC. DC didn't take the bit. If she's fighting para-demons of all kinds, then I can't resist.

    Would read? Yes, my inner girl wants to.

  3. Gotta love those red para-demons!

  4. hah! awesome, jon!

    there are a small band of my followers dying for me to reboot Amethyst. i'm so glad you did her for them. WAY better. :)

  5. Amazing artstyle, stunning visual!

  6. Aw, yeah! Love McNally's work.
