Alors qu’est sorti l’excellent #0 la semaine dernière, la formidable Renae DeLiz dont je n’arrêtai jamais de vanter les mérites a publié récemment sur son blog des planches du projet sur lequel elle travaillait pour DC concernant la série Amethyst: Princess of Gemworld. Sa version n’a pas été retenue, mais l’artiste espère tout de même un jour pouvoir travailler officiellement sur l’univers coloré d’Amy Winston, en tout cas c’est tout le mal que je lui souhaite.
I though I’d gather together all of my Amethyst: Princess of Gemworld stuff onto one page 🙂 For those that don’t know, she is an older DC character that was a precursor to She-Ra. The old comics were full of fantasy, magic, pegasus, pastel crystals, and everything else you can’t help but love about 80’s properties 😉 I found out about her on a tour of the DC offices in 2008, and I’ve spent years since re-creating her original tale in an updated manner. Not only do I just LOVE the story and character, but I feel that Amethyst done correctly, would absolutely bring in a whole new readership to comics in general.
Someday I would love to write as well as draw this. It would be all ages (nothing worse thanHarry Potter anyway) and would be an updated version of the original Maxi Series (so think Dark Opal, Princess Emerald, Granch, towering crystals, trees with faces, the whole kaboodle ;)). As with the original, it would be a tale of high fantasy, adventure, and love.
Below you’ll find parts of my pitch that I sent to DC. Earlier this year I was considered for the new Amethyst series as artist, but they went another direction. I am absolutely honored to have even been considered and it was a wonderful experience! 🙂 I feel the artist they picked is perfect for the new story.
But my passion will always lie with telling my version of Amethyst, so I’ll keep up hope someday DC will give me that chance.
