Lights Announces New Album & Comic Book Series, 'Skin&Earth'
The digital intro issue will be released in May, with the first print issue – Skin&Earth #1 – on sale July 12 via Dynamite Entertainment.
The monthly comic book series (written and illustrated by Lights) will kick off just before Comic-Con International, with new music accompanying each issue and leading into the Fall 2017 release of Skin&Earth, Lights’ next full-length studio album on Warner Bros. Records.
The comic series follows a young woman, En – a reflection of Lights herself – as she struggles to find hope in a hopeless world. Caught between romance and cults, gods and mortals, En is led down a dark path by new friends/lovers into a twisted fantasy world, forcing her to dig within and find the strength to overcome. Set in a post-apocalyptic future where corporations rule, Skin&Earth is an adventurous tale of loneliness and deceit, but ultimately becomes one of self-discovery and independence.
