Flying Mounts

"Flying Mounts" from Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld #11 (DC, 1984) by Dan Mishkin, Gary Cohn and Ernie Colon

Amethyst's 3 series (a 12-issue maxi + Annual, a 16-issue monthly + Special, and a 4-issue mini finale) are on my reading list for my other blog's "Old 52" article series, which I'll hopefully get to before the character makes her first New 52 appearance in Sword of Sorcery (which I just know I'm gonna call Sword AND Sorcery). When the series was around originally, I know I was trying to get into some kind of fantasy series published at DC, but neither Warlord, Arion, nor Arak really did it for me. The Princess of Gemworld? Never gave her a shot. That comic was for girls! Basically She-Ra with purple jewelry. Well, I'm not 13 anymore, so a shot she shall get! The Ernie Colon art alone gives me reason to read it.
