In Advance of the Series’ Third Act, Dynamite Offers the Series Debut at a Digital Discount for Fans
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!
Writer, artist, and pop sensation Lights says, “I spent so much time working head in on the Skin&Earth comics that I never really stopped to consider if it would be received well or if the characters would resonate with people. When we launched issue one just a week before Comic-Con this year, I was blown away to already see cosplayers there, and before I knew it, fan art, cosplay and people’s reactions to the story line and the twists of the story started to pour in. I never imagined we’d already be reprinting issue one after only a few months. I have a massive respect for comics and creators in the field, and to feel embraced in this industry is quite incredible.”
“The response from Lights’ fanbase has been tremendous, and lead to one of our most talked about titles in 2017, with multiple printings of the first two issues,” says Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher for Dynamite Entertainment. “Working with such a talented and dedicated musician who is both writing and drawing the series herself has truly been a unique treat for both her fans and ours. We wanted to grow the readership for this great series, and wanted to not only bring in new readers, but to make sure her fans had one more chance to get on board with the series before heading into their local comic book shop this Wednesday.”
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. Pick up the first four issues exclusively through this deep discount at http://dynamite.com/digital/ today!
Skin&Earth is the fourth studio album from the Canadian singer and songwriter, whose 2015 release Little Machines won Lights her second JUNO Award, for Best Pop Album of the Year. Little Machines featured the Platinum-selling, Top 10 radio hit “Up We Go” and earned accolades from TIME, Idolator, Refinery29, Alternative Press, Noisey, NYLON, and more. The Toronto-based Lights, née Valerie Anne Poxleitner, has sold out headline tours across North America and Europe. Lights has also played numerous festivals including Coachella, Reading & Leeds, and has toured with OneRepublic, Tegan & Sara, Parmore, DEADMAU5, and many others.
