During the Diamond Summit and C2E2, Dynamite announced that they’re going to be releasing a new and special hardcover collection of Skin&Earth, written and drawn by Lights.
The six-issue story behind the musician’s most recently released full album is collected here along with a personal introduction by Lights, digital codes giving access to the music, and additional art by Jim Lee, Joby Harris, Derek Lewis, Gianna Rose and Matt Mitchell.
Skin&Earth tells the story of a girl “looking for hope in a hopeless world”. Enaia Jin is led down a “dark path by new lovers” that reveals a fantasy world and her true nature. Set in a post-apocalyptic future ruled by the Tempest Corporation, the adventure ties in with the 14-track corresponding album that is compiled for the first time here with the complete comic book series, in one collected edition.
The collected edition includes:
- All 6 issues of Skin&Earth comic book
