Any Amethyst fans out there?
This summer I've enjoyed the original Amethyst maxi-series. The story's fun fairy-tale fare and the art's by one of my long-time favorites, Ernie Colón (with letters by John Costanza, also a fave). All the fun's bound to rub off on me (and from me onto a couple of things sitting in my sketchbook).
Wait, maybe that's ink from the newsprint.
It's interesting—although Colón had significant comics experience prior to this series, I think I see marked improvement from issue to issue of Amethyst. I admire Colón's ability to draw engaging adventure mags like this and humor mags like Richie Rich.Excerpt from Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld, Vol. 1, No. 5.
