Story, Art and Lettering by LIGHTS
Published by Dynamite
Enaia Jin, is just a girl, wishing her life was different. In the Post-Apocalyptic future that is ruled by the Tempest Corporation, that is anything but easy. How can one find hope in a seemingly hopeless world?
Enaia is not like everyone else, as an inhabitant of The Red Sector she lives among the poor, weak, sick and the working class. Yet somehow, she refuses to give up even if Tempest consumes every bit of the last habitable zone on earth.
This is the full collection of Lights’ masterwork and quite unique in its genre. The comic is fully soundtracked and comes with a special song per chapter that you can download. There are a 14-track album that goes with this series and it is worth the buy.
The story is monumental, and it immediately picks you up and takes you along on this journey with Enaia. The art is beautiful, evocative and touching. It really makes the world she lives in tangible.
The collection is also sublime for the added material they include. All 6 issues of the Skin&Earth comic books have the interactive sharecodes to access the full album, music videos and other stunning bonus content. More than that even, there is variant art by Jim Lee, Joby Harris, Derek Lewis, Gianna Rose and Matt Mitchell. There is also a personal introduction from Lights as well.
All in all, this is a wonderful collector item that you cannot miss purchasing. Not only for the amazing bonus material, but also for the story. There are always reasons to fight and find hope where you believe there is none to be found. So, this summer do yourself a favor and escape to a Tempest future and discover what it is all about. You will not regret it, I certainly did not!
