Dynamite to Offer Lights’ Skin & Earth #1 for Just 10 Cents!

Earlier this year, electro-pop sensation Lights revealed the details of her next project, Skin&Earth – an album and comic book series written and illustrated entirely by Lights herself. The monthly comic book series kicked off in July, with new music released alongside each issue, leading into the release of Skin&Earth, Lights’ new full-length studio album on Warner Bros. Records in September.

Now, for an extremely limited time, Dynamite Entertainment is offering the first issue digitally for just a dime! Issues 2-4 are also available for just $1.99 each!

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.

Skin&Earth #5 is out Wednesday, November 15th, with the sixth and final issue available for preorder through your local comic book retailer.
