For the past two years, we have been working with multi-talented pop sensation LIGHTS on her groundbreaking comic series and accompanying album titled Skin&Earth. The comic itself is a fantasy adventure about a girl trying to find hope in a hopeless world. It beautifully intertwines everything you could want in a story – a post-apocalyptic romance, cults, gods, powerful women and self discovery. The accompanying album features songs for every issue of the comic and takes the universe she single-handedly created into a whole other dimension. As if all that wasn’t enough for you, we connected her with one of our favorite directors, Jeremy Schaulin-Rioux, to bring the universe to life through music videos for several of the songs on the album.
An innovative and complex project like Skin&Earth needs an equally innovative outlet to be experienced fully. IHEARTCOMIX has been working with Dynamite Comics and LIGHTS for the past few months on a special paperback & hardcover edition of the entire series bound together as Skin&Earth Volume One. We are so proud of the unparalleled and experimental book we’ve created together and we can’t wait for you to experience it!
The special edition release will include:
The interactive codes present an immersive and integrated experience that is exceptionally unique in the realm of comics and music. Watch the video of LIGHTS below to find out how to use them and see all the exciting features you will be able to unlock with them!
