    This started out well and I liked the world, but by the end it had all fallen apart - the story was breathless and illogical and the artwork got quite ugly at times. Still, apparently Lights is a famous singer as well as writing and illustrating this, which is impressive - even one...

    I've been wanting to read this since before the first issue was even released. It took me a while, but I'm glad I finally got to it. I've loved Lights for a long time now, and getting this concept album that goes alongside this graphic novel is incredible. I'm so excited to see what sh...

    I received an ARC copy of this book from NetGalley So I've never even heard of Lights but I saw this book on NetGalley and I liked the cover and it sounded interesting so I figured I would give it a shot. Now this is a special edition that has the codes printed on the page so you ca...

    In a near-future Earth ecologically devasted, a young redhead goes from college through a nice neighborhood and reveals that she?s part of a lesser caste, to the point where she has to wear a mask so that she doesn?t breathe on this society?s higher-ups. A guard at the checkpoint...

    I am a huge Lights Valerie Anne Poxleitner Bokan fan: I enjoy her music tremendously and her style is always pretty nice to look at, plus she's a total babe and just seems nice and cool. But, I hate comics. Hate might be strong word-and actually hate might not be accurate any more ...

    This book captivated me right from the start! It opens up to issues of environmentalism, classism, and the most bigoted people that the protagonist, En, has to encounter just going to school. Lights has woven the issues that the marginalized faced with the normalcy of human situations,...

    Doesn't Break New Ground, But Well Done This is a concept graphic novel joined with Lights' concept album of the same name, and the package is well crafted and interesting. I can't comment in any useful way on the album except to say that I've sampled all of the tracks and they c...

    I guess you've got to be a Lights fan to get this one. To me it was just a weak plot, and some good looking people wearing skimpy clothing. ...

    "Because the only one to the light is through the dark." I wanted to first say that Lights has been an important part of my life for going on 7 years now and I admire her for branching out of music to do something completely different! I saw through this graphic novel that Lights ha...

    An interesting graphic novel about a young woman who lives in a divided and dying earth. En encounters lovers and mysteries and strange worlds, and in doing so she discovers that she has the powers to put things right. She is not who she thought she was but she doesnt really know w...

    Time only matters in places where it runs out. This was pretty cool. And Lights is a pretty amazing artist. (That?s her name. Lights. In case you didn?t get that.) But this is more an experience than a comic. First of all, the comic was a different and creative take on t...

    Thank you to NetGalley and Diamond Book Distributors for the ARC to read and review! For my first foray into reviewing a comic or graphic novel, I think this one is a great place to start! I've been a fan of Lights for a few years now, and so I was excited to come across Skin&Ea...

    I wasn?t sure what to make of this in the beginning but it was a fun ride. Love the illustrations, the music addition added a whole other element to the reading experience. I look forward to more. ...

    4.5 Stars This graphic novel was an entirely new experience. Famous singer Lights has done all of the writing, drawing, inking and colouring; as well, she composed a full length album that coincides with the storyline. Each issue includes a QR code at the beginning, which loads a pa...

    I received an ARC through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Rating: 3.5 stars This was a dystopia/fantasy adventure that went in a completely different direction than I expected. I really liked the worldbuilding and the mythology of the world, and the main character had...

    To read more reviews check out MI Book Reviews. I got an ARC of this book. I saw Lights perform when I was first starting college. I was front row, right by the speaker. She was the opening act and I ended up going out and buying her CD. I got a wild urge to listen to her again a...

    (Disclaimer: I received this free book from Netgalley. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.) Skin & Earth is an immersive experience to the core. Not only does each track of her album refer to part of the comic book, but the comic itself has QR codes wit...

    I have never heard of Lights before, but I thoroughly enjoyed this graphic novel. I really like how you can totally immerse yourself in the story not only by reading the book but also by watching and listening to the videos and songs. I'm not the biggest fan of the songs, simply becaus...

    Solid 3.5 rounded up to a four! Loved the art style and the album that went with it. The story is pretty solid, but a lot happened in the last two volumes so the ending feels a little rushed. I hope there's more to come! ...

    I liked this more than I thought I would. To get the full experience, I read as I listened to the album. There are a few lines that come straight from the songs that feel a bit indulgent, not fitting extremely well into dialogue, but much of it was really cool to see the correlation of...

    Is it really fair for one person to have this many talents? Lights is already an accomplished singer, now she's created a concept album with an accompanying comic book that she wrote, drew, and even lettered. Starts off in a dystopian future where mankind has destroyed more of the e...

    I have to admit I am basing my rating on the entire package, namely, the graphic novel and the music that accompanies each chapter. Having said that, I did not listen at the beginning of each chapter as suggested, I didn't want to stop reading and in my world, one pays attention to wha...

    I was provided an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. It was pretty good at first but fast, it became messy, confused. I think it kind of went too far and lost me. Also, I didn?t fell for the characters the way I thought I would. I guess my expectations were jus...

    Here's one more tuppen'orth about this from someone who knew nothing about Lights ? what she is, who she is, anything. She's certainly an artist ? trying strong visuals on every page and getting it right almost every time. But is she a graphic novelist? Well, there the jury is defi...

    OKAY SO LIGHTS BASICALLY OWNS MY SOUL SO OF COURSE I LOVE THIS. But also... this is a great comic. I've been a fan of Lights' music since her early career when I saw her "Drive My Soul" music video on MuchMusic (wow I feel old. Do they even show music videos on Much anymore?) Her com...

    En's world has been devastated. She lives in the wreckage of a city surrounded by pollution that is slowly poisoning everyone and outside of her home is supposedly a wasteland. Despite all of this En seems to find beauty in the little things every single day. I freaking loved this! ...

    Making a song into a comic Does it sounds cool....Yes Does it sounds a bad marketing....Maybe? Did I enjoy it....YES!! A dystopian slice of life comic with musical background and a little bit of magic mystery on it. Skin & Earth best part for me is the art and color; I also r...

    To be honest, this emerging trend of recommended listening with chapters, is not my cup of tea at all. The graphic novel wasn't... I'm not sure what it was or wasn't. The story was okay, the artwork very detailed, but overall it lacked *something*, although I can't exactly put my fin...

    Overall I really liked it. First of all the worldbuilding was awesome. Even without the map at the end of issue #2 I got a really good sense of geography, but it was mostly the culture that was so well done. Even little things like pop culture (Captain Lights, L?n), the food (Borscht-...

    The pollution on Earth has gone out of control. The people depend on the oil from the ground, but are unable to mitigate the pollution it generates. The rich called Pinks hide in their opulent cities while the working class are sequestered in crumbling ghettos. Society is strictly cont...
