Comet, the neurodiverse daughter of Earth's greatest defender, yearns for a quiet existence with towers of books and the occasional game night at her friend's house.
Her mom, Glamorella, savors the thrill of adventure, the heat of battle, and the glitzy soirées that come with superheroics. While Glamorella navigates keeping the world safe and dealing with her super-scientist ex, Comet does her best to withstand the trials of middle school.
When people start disappearing through a portal to another universe, Glamorella and Comet will have to figure out how to work together to save both of their worlds.
Volume One includes a never-before-seen comic short featuring Comet's best friend Isaac, written by Laron Chapman.

"Super relatable . . . My favorite thing about Glamorella's Daughter #1 is that Comet doesn't mask . . . seeing Comet be herself, be autistic without trying to conform to the expectations of her neurotypical mother and society, is a relief." - Kellie Keener
"I need more than five stars to express how much I loved these comics . . . The art is perfect for the story, the characters are relatable, the writing is funny and heartfelt, and the approach to Comet's challenges and gifts is really special." - J Hall
