Pop sensation Lights is set to return to San Diego Comic-Con once again to promote her new graphic novel, Skin&Earth.
Announced today, Lights breakout comic series Skin&Earth is slated for television, digital and gaming adaptation through global entertainment company eOne.
“I’m so thrilled to get back to Comic-Con, just a year after the release of the first ever issue of Skin&Earth,” remarked author and artist Lights. “I’ve got my own panel and I’m bringing the collected edition of the series with me this time. The graphic novel features scannable codes throughout that make this music-comic crossover project one of the most immersive multimedia experiences I’ve ever seen.”
On Friday, July 20, Lights will be appearing on Syfy WIRE’S FANGRRL presents panel in Room 6-DE at 5:30 PM. Following the panel, Lights heads to the FYE Pop-up located at Westfield Horton Plaza at 8 PM for a Q&A and signing.

Lights will take the stage inside the walls of Comic-Con in Room 26AB at 6:30 PM to speak about her one-woman journey creating a comic/music crossover in publishing and what’s in store for the future.
“I spent a good two years of my life writing, drawing and building this world and bringing this series to life, and Comic-Con is a rewarding opportunity to celebrate these works we love and care about so much,” added artist Lights.
The signed hardcover edition of Skin&Earth collects all six issues of the acclaimed comic book series along with variant art from Jim Lee, Joby Harris, Derek Lewis, Gianna Rose and Matt Mitchell and an all-new introduction from Lights as well as custom interactive share codes to access the full album, music videos and other bonus content.
Skin&Earth is a story of a girl looking for hope in a hopeless world. Caught between romance and cults, gods and mortals, and just trying to find a good borscht, Enaia Jin is lead down a dark path by new lovers that reveals a twisted fantasy world and her own true nature.
