Amethyst's DC Comics outlet in Sword of Sorcery may have been canceled, but fans of the sword-swinging, winged horse-riding princess still have one more animated adventure to catch as part of the Amethyst: Princess of Gemworld series of DC Nation shorts on Cartoon Network. The heroine's sixth and final "level" will air this Saturday, March 2, and you can see a clip of Amethyst's big boss battle -- and catch up with the whole series so far -- right after the cut.
We've spotlighted quite a few DC Nation shorts, from the gorgeously animated Batman in Shanghai to the hilarious Animal Man and heartwarming Thunder and Lightning. The series of six Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld shorts, especially, have delivered a premise, style and attitude that seems uniquely suited to take center stage as a full-on animated show.
Amethyst: Princess of Gemworld "Level 6: The Final Boss" airs this Saturday during the DC Nation programming block alongside new episodes of Green Lantern: The Animated Series and Young Justice on Cartoon Network, which kicks off at at 10 a.m. EST/PST. You can catch the new clip, along with the complete first five shorts in the series, below.
And you can catch up for the finale with the first five episodes while you wait.
