First woman to write Transformers comic Mairghread Scott at Creative Women Mini-Con 2015

The first woman to ever write a Transformers comic book, Mairghread Scott, will join us this Saturday, October 3, 2015 for our 3rd annual Creative Women Mini-Con.

Mairghread wrote the four issues series, Transformers: Windblade, making her the first woman to ever write a Transformers comic book. She worked with an all female team, including Sarah Stone, who attended Creative Women Mini-Con 2014.



First creator-owned series Toil and Trouble


Mairghread's first creator-owned series, Toil and Trouble, published by BOOM! Studios, has its first issue on comic book shelves now. DorkShelf.com describes Toil and Trouble this way: "This six issue miniseries weaves together the story of Macbeth from the point of view of the three witches, offering a unique glimpse into the world of one of Shakespeare’s biggest tragedies and delivering a closer examination into the darker parts of the human soul."

Learn more about Toil and Trouble in this Mairghread Scott interview at The Mary Sue.

Connect with Mairghread online on Twitter, @MairghreadScott, on her website, MScottWriter.com, or on Tumblr, MScottWrites.

More of Mairghread's work can be seen in Marvel's Guardians of The Galaxy, Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors, Transformers: Robots In Disguise and Rescue Bots as well as the comic books Marvel Universe Guardians of the Galaxy, and Transformers: Combiner Wars.
