Lights to Release Monthly Comic Alongside New Album

Toronto-based electro-pop act Lights, aka Valerie Anne Poxleitner, will release an ongoing comic series to tie into her upcoming album “Skin & Earth,” which debuts in May.

Written and illustrated entirely by the 30-year-old musician, the comic will debut digitally in June from Dynamite Entertainment before arriving in print on July 12. Here’s the official synopsis:

The story follows a young woman, En (a reflection of Lights herself) struggling to find hope in a hopeless world. Caught between romance and cults, gods and mortals, En is led down a dark path by new friends/lovers into a twisted fantasy world, forcing her to dig within and find the strength to overcome. Set in a post-apocalyptic future where corporations rule, “Skin & Earth” touts itself as an adventurous tale of loneliness and deceit, but ultimately becomes one of self-discovery and independence.

“I feel my whole life has led up to a project like this. It’s a complete convergence of everything I love – music, comics, post-apocalyptic romance, crystals, wine and powerful ladies, all perfectly entwined,” Lights said in a statement. “It’ll be by far my most care-free and fierce album yet. I think now, more than ever, people need a reason to listen to a whole record, and this is mine.”

“Skin & Earth” will be Lights’ fourth studio album. Her 2015 release “Little Machines” earned the singer/songwriter her second Juno Award, for Best Pop Album of the Year.
