I once went on a comics-buying spree with a guy-friend of mine and he squeed upon finding the first issue of Amethyst. I mean, he really squeed. And this was a guy bigger than me--enormous guy who worked in the construction business, and had a beard that will one day parallel Alan Moore's mighty tentacle-beard.
I like Amethyst a lot, too. Have we really seen anything of her in recent years? I kind of vaguely recall her popping up in Day of Vengeance, or something.
