Despite the thrill and renewed sense of freedom she is feeling under the influence of her new and mysterious companion, En is forced to discover a dark truth about her ex-lover, Priest. It seems the boundaries of spirituality and her world as she knows it are beginning to blur.
Written and drawn by alt-pop phenomenon Lights, Skin&Earth ties directly into her next full-length album, to be released in Fall 2017 on Warner Bros. records.

    Comic Bastards - Ashley Gibbs Oct 15, 2017

    While this review might seem harsh on Skin & Earth #4 it's mainly because I had my hopes up for an engaging series but it's faltering due to slow pacing and an ambiguous plot. This series currently only has three characters limiting the interactions that we can see, which probably causes some of the pacing issues. En lives in a post-apocalyptic world with a lot of opportunity for different stories to be told but currently, the main focus is her love life, which is fine, but the story could be handled better. En's discovery in the woods will hopefully drive things forward to where readers get some answers and resolutions. Read Full Review

    With two more issues to go after this I'm still feeling fairly lost with what it's trying to accomplish. The series has some interesting things floating throughout it and I like Lights' design work with the characters and visuals for the world but it's not landing as a whole. Perhaps it'll work better when read in full but it also has to function in monthly installments and it really is struggling there. The interesting moments can't sustain it and instead just points out the weaknesses even more. Which just makes it all the more frustrating. Read Full Review
