Ready For More Amethyst On DC Nation? [VIDEO]

Pretty Pretty Princess

We were thrilled to see Amethyst: Princess of Gemworld finally make its debut last week on Cartoon Network's DC Nation. If you missed the short you can watch it here. Right now we've got a clip from this week's short, "Level 2: Village of the Frogs," which has Amethyst fighting an awfully cute spider. I might add "awfully cute spider" is not in my vocabulary so take that how you will. Look for the full short this Saturday on Cartoon Network.

Here's an exclusive preview of issue #3, including the cover and four pages!

Cartoon Network Puts DC Nation on Unexplained 3 Month Haitus With No Notice to Fans or Creators

Questions! Questions That Need Answering

Cartoon Network viewers, fans of Young Justice, Green Lantern, and lots of people anticipating the premiere of the first Amethyst: Princess of Gemworld, and Black Lightning shorts were confused, Friday night, when they checked their television listings to find that in the hour when DC Nation normally aired, something else entirely was listed. It had been replaced by Dragons: Riders of Berk, a tie in series to Dreamworks' How to Train Your Dragon. Many people assumed it was just a mistake, since even the creator of the Gemworld shorts, Brianne Drouhard, was under the impression that her work would begin airing tomorrow. After all, DC Nation couldn't go on hiatus again: it had only been two weeks since it returned with a new season of Young Justice and Green Lantern after a four month break. Could it?

i'll just leave this here

We're psyched about all of these DC shorts. Our only complaints step from the fact that we want them to be full-length shows, not short little things that will flit into our lives and then abandon us again. But we'll take what we can get. (WB's Comic-Con via Tumblr)
