In issue 2 of Skin & Earth the saga of Enaia Jin develops as the relationship between her and her lover, Priest, begins to unravel. Set against the backdrop of a post-apocalyptic future, what began as a summer fling has quickly turned into a broken heart revealing a lingering mystery along the way. Why does Priest leave? What's the significance of the tattoo? Why aren't there more fast food borsht places in the world? The story continues here. Written and drawn by alt-pop phenomenon Lights, Skin&Earth ties directly into her next full length album, released in Fall 2017 on Warner Bros Records.

    Issue 2 is a beautifully drawn and written issue that has philosophy that can be used in everyday life. Lights also doesn't include this ideology of thinking to sound pretentious and superior but to develop a character and explore their thinking. The story is shaping up well and I can't wait for new music & issue 3. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Ashley Gibbs Aug 10, 2017

    So far the story is pretty simple but well written and the main character is enjoyable. I really do love how things are presented in a mix media linking comics to music, Lights' latest video "Skydiving" shows the musician working on artwork for the comic and the song is linked to the love affair En had with Priest. Skin & Earth #2 presented something a lot of us can relate to unfortunately, heartbreak is never easy and after seeing it built up in this story the inevitable fall had an impact. But I want to see where En goes from here, she's lost and hopeless in a dark and unforgiving world which could spell a lot of trouble. I recommend trying this series out, and hope the plot will develop in the next issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - David Lee Martins Aug 10, 2017

    I feel like the story lost some momentum compared to the first issue. We also aren't given a lot of seeds for future issues, so I genuinely don't know what to expect going forward. I do feel the premise still has potential and I'm curious to know where Lights will take us with this story. Read Full Review
