Transformers Comics Writer Mairghread Scott Interview With Hire This Woman
BaCon - Tuesday, January 21, 2014


ComicsAlliance offers the lastest edition of "Hire This Woman." Their recurring feature designed to help highlight that women are working on comics too. This week, they’re talking to comics and animation writer Mairghread Scott, who is best known for her work on the Transformers property both at Hasbro and at IDW Publishing, where she became the first woman to write an official Transformers comic.

CA: What’s your background/training?

MS: I have a BFA (or a BA if my mother asks) in Dramatic Writing from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts and got my start in LA working various production jobs in animation. Once I started writing in animation and my career began to take off, I was able to make the leap to writing comics as well.

CA: How would you describe your creative style?

MS: I tend to write very intense, motive-driven stories. I don’t like to say “character-driven” because I think fast-paced action is crucial in comics, but for me the real meat of any comic is in why the hero and the villain make the choices they do. Being either comes at tremendous personal cost, and exploring both the loss and gain from that choice is at the heart of what I write.

CA: What projects have you worked on in the past? What are you currently working on?

MS: In television I’ve written for Transformers Prime, Rescue Bots, Kaijudo and several other shows that haven’t aired yet because animation takes so long. In comics I’ve co-written Rage of the Dinobots and Transformers Prime Beast Hunters. I am currently writing Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs for Lion Forge (yes, it is about an intergalactic law enforcement officer on a robotic horse), and the Transformers Windblade miniseries for IDW with the fantastic Sarah Stone. I’m also pitching my first original graphic novel with Sarah and… between you, me and the Internet… it’s awesome!

CA: Approximately how long does it take you to write a 20-page issue?

MS: My preferred time frame is 10 business days for a first draft, five for rewrites on a 20-24 page comic. My “under the gun” timeline is half that.

CA: What is your dream project?

MS: I love filling in the gaps and smoothing out the bumps in a character’s continuity. My dream project would be fleshing out and re-grounding some of those wonderful side characters that get killed/canceled/retconned a lot, but are still around. Clearly they resonate with the readers; they just need someone to hit the right note.

Or Wonder Woman. My other ideal project is anything Wonder Woman.

Tonight they've continued downward, revealing the lower half of the body with a look at the legs and a considerable chunk of the base environment the statue stands on. Sadly these are not separate cuts of the same image in order to piece them back together - or I would have - but you can still get a good sense of the overall product between them.
