Elise and Dave take a look at AMETHYST, PRINCESS OF GEMWORLD nos. 4-6, the point at which a 7-year-old Elise came in, in 1983. This run of issues features some of Ernie Colón's best artwork and two of the series' most memorable covers (as Elise can vouch), as well as some signs of hastiness. Dark Opal cranks up the evil; we meet new important Gemworld denizens; and the hosts ponder the question of what exactly happened to the eldest Princess Emerald.
