If you don’t think comics can make a difference, this week you’re going to discover one that does! In Episode 372, you’ll hear my discussion with Shelbi Webb (who’s 13 years old) and her Dad Jason Webb, two of the driving (or should I say flying) forces behind the “comic with a cause,” Sugar Glider and the X Ambassadors! Shelbi and her father have turned life tragedies into comics that can help teens deal with concerns including poor body image, the loss of a loved one, LGBTQ issues and many more matters teens face today. We discuss the first two issues of the comic, including how they bring each issue together, how they are getting the word out (including attending local conventions), and what we can expect from them and their hopeful comic in the months ahead. I highly recommend you go to this link and support this book! If you can help get these comics in the hands of teens and others who might find them helpful, also reach out to Shelbi and her Dad through this email address!
