Comet yearns for a quiet existence with towers of books while her mom, Glamorella, savors the thrill of adventure and 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. Can they find the time and common ground to help each other and save the world? Find out this July, when Glamorella’s Daughter #1 will be flying into a comic shop near you.
