Today we celebrate a very special event, the one-year anniversary of DC Comics’ Wonder Comics imprint. Announced last year at New York Comic Con by writer Brian Michael Bendis, the imprint focuses on younger characters and capturing the attention of younger readers.
Bendis, who curates the Wonder Comics imprint, shared two big announcements today in celebration of the imprint’s anniversary: All of the Wonder Comics characters team up for the first time in the 12th issue of flagship title Young Justice, and the imprint gains a new title with the launch of Amethyst.
Amy Reeder (Batwoman, Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, Rocketgirl) will be writing, drawing, and coloring the brand new Amethyst monthly comic series that arrives in February 2020.
Following the character’s triumphant reintroduction in the pages of Young Justice, the new Amethyst series follows teenager Amy Winston, a.k.a. Princess Amethyst, as she returns to her magical kingdom to find it in ruins, her subjects vanished, and none in the realm of Gemworld still loyal to her house. To solve this mystery, restore House Amethyst, and save her family, Amy must find new allies and confront dark secrets on a deadly quest to the farthest reaches of Gemworld.
Enjoy a preview of the first issue of Amethyst below.
