About Glider Comix
The company started with an idea sparked by a father and daughter and their love for writing, comic books, art and the drive to help young people change their lives.
Glider Comix is a partnership based on the imagination of a 12 year old girl and the marketing drive of a man who grew up collecting comic books.
Through some imagination, brainstorming and some “Don’t take “NO” for an answer” attitude Glider Comix has launched their flagship comic “Sugar Glider” in May 2018 with many more ideas on the way.
Introducing Slider Glider
My 12 year old daughter, shelbi, is the creative and writer for the comic. Her concept came from a mixture of a couple of her favorite super heroes. However, not only the super hero but also her experiences as a teen and dealing with a bully. Sugar glider is not only a comic book, but it is a comic book with a cause.Meet the Creator

A meteor shower effected some of the teens in the community Jordyn aka Sugar Glider was camping in the mountains and fell into a crater where a meteor crashed to earth. When she awoke she had gained super speed, agility and healing.Utilizing her wing suit from BASE jumping, her best friend Edgar helped her learn to run and at the right moment unfurl compact wings that take her momentum into gliding thrust to fly.
Jordyn has found that other kids from her school were effected in various ways by the meteor shower. Antagonists in the comic will be personifications of challenges facing teens today. Challenges such as self image, bullying, suicide, social media, etc.
