Maybe, depends on the artist, writer, etc
I support this motion. This would be a good book for Amy Reeder after the Batwoman business. Also Mahmud Asrar if they move him from Supergirl.
When they stop producing Voodoo, I wouldn't mind Sam Basri is moved to the project
It will depend of the style
if its somekind of joyfull title or a dark one it might
from what i heard it worked very well at the begining because it was a fun title an then it was turn darker and darker and fans left
well DC already have many Really good Dark Titles so i dont think they need to get more of that
If you want to know who to blame for the darkness, look no further than Giffen and Fleming. By the end of their tenure, they had not only blinded Amethyst, but also turned her insane and evil. Gary and Dan have never gotten all the credit they deserve for the phenomenal work they did in creating and establishing both franchises for DC. The fact that Amethyst is still so beloved and remembered so fondly and so fervently over 25 years later speaks volumes about the quality of their writing.
The only bad thing about this news is that the reprint is going to be in black & white. I mean, come on--it's a book about magical warriors whose entire raison d'etre is based on brightly colored gems. This would be like reprinting Blackest Night without all the Rainbow Corps in color. It removes half the visual impact of the franchise's core gimmick.
Nonetheless, this is very promising news. Any new ongoing Amethyst book is virtually guaranteed to automatically go on my pull list (provided the creative team is top notch).
I'd love to see an all-ages, but still set in-continuity Amethyst title. The DC New 52 has worked hard to enhance the variety of titles in terms of genre, but they've actually been moving in the opposite direction in terms of tone. All titles seem to be moving in the direction of being universally dark and edgy, with some titles pulling that off better than others. I know it would probably be a recipe for quick cancellation, but I'd love to read a DCU that's not trying to be another Geoff Johns, Scott Snyder, or even a Judd Winnick title. Let those titles be what they are and allow an Amethyst title to be something else altogether.
Dammit, when I saw the title I thought that the book was already announced.
Anyway, I'm not really interested in the character, but if it was written by a good author with an intriguing premise I would try it.
Comic Books are fun, Comic Book fans not so much.
