Hey there, kids! So, if you’ve been keeping up with me on Facebook and Twitter, you might have seen that I mentioned the fact that I’ve recently come into two new jobs. In addition to the 4 I already had. The first is very much a “day job” type deal, one that I started today. 3 days a week, pays well, great work environment and nice boss, data entry type stuff that I can totally forget about once I punch out, AND I’ll be working with a new friend, which is super awesome (hi, Patty!). I’m not going to get into that one, because that boring side of my life isn’t really what this blog is about. Needless to say, I’m glad I have the job, as I could very much use the extra cash. And it’s a good place to work, so yay!
The OTHER job is a writing gig! I’m pleased to announce that I’m the new comics columnist at GirlGamer.com! I’m honored to have been offered the position, and am thrilled to be working with (for? alongside? under? over? around?) my friend, the inimitable Cricket Lee. Also, I’m thrilled to have an outlet for which I can write about comics again! I’ve missed comics writing, and this will allow me to get back into an area of Geek Culture that I LOVE. (and an excuse to get comics every week…as if I needed one!)
I’ll be writing for their INKED column every Thursday along with the talented and super-sweet Jessica TheComicBookGirl, and today was my very first piece! I interviewed the uber-talented Mairghread Scott about her comics company, WE Comics; her gig writing for Transformers Prime, and her new creator-owned comic, Triage!
Mairghread Scott grew up loving comics like 1990’s X-Men. In college, when she was too broke to splurge on other entertainment, weekly trips to the comics shop were what got her through. Cut to today where she and her husband, Jason Enright, have founded their own comics company called WE Comics, which seeks to provide the titles lacking elsewhere; like comics for children, or comics created by and prominently featuring women. She’s also currently a writer on the Transformers Prime comic at IDW, which she’s qualified to do, since she’s an animation writer by trade, and currently a writer on the Transformers Prime animated series on The Hub. AND she’s recently released her own creator-owned title, Triage, a superhero book written by Scott and drawn by Candace Ellis of Womanthology. Now, that’s what I call living the dream!
