Lindsey Stirling has set the world on fire as an electronic violinist, with styles ranging from classical to pop and electronic dance music.
She caught the attention of TV viewers in 2010 as a contestant on America’s Got Talent and with her debut album. She has gone on to build a huge YouTube following with over 9-million subscribers and 1.7 billion viewers.
If that’s not enough, she wrote her first book, “The Only Pirate At the Party”, which made it on the New York Times bestseller list last year.
Now, she’s at Comic-Con to launch her new project – a series of comic books, at an Aspen Comics panel including a signing and unveiling of “Sparrow”, a 6-issue series.
According to press release, Sparrow “follows the story of a girl struggling to survive in a world where light and hope are quickly disappearing. Those in charge have stolen the planet’s energy for themselves, stripping the average person of wealth, dignity, and even their names. After finding a piece of an ancient object and stowing away on a pirate ship, Sparrow embarks on an incredible journey, discovering that by being strong and brave, one girl can not only find her place in the world, but she can change it”.
