It's been a whirlwind few months for Lights, the Canadian singer and newly minted comic book writer/artist. Following the release of her high concept latest album Skin & Earth, which launched with a six-issue comic series from Dynamite, the multi-hyphenate stopped by our studio at San Diego Comic-Con with some big news: her comic has been optioned for television by Entertainment One.
While Lights, who will serve as Executive Producer and Creative Consultant on the show, was excited about this latest development, she was quick to point out that it's still in the very early stages of development. Nevertheless, as she discussed with us, she's optimistic about the project.
In talking about the massive undertaking that was the comic and album, Lights says she is critical of people who believe you should only ever do one kind of art. She also discussed her love of science fiction as a genre that can ask big questions and tackle big issues while also offering some escape from reality.
