NEWSFLASH!

My creator-owned series The Third Witch is now called Toil and Trouble. Same great book written by me with amazing art by Kelly and Nichole Matthews, but with a new title.

If you’ve already pre-ordered Toil and Trouble under its old title, have no fear. The order code is the same, so your request will still go through. For those of you that haven’t ordered Toil and Trouble yet, we have an updated order form just for you. Procrastinators!Toil_and_Trouble_order_form

“But Mairghread,” you might be wondering, “what is this comic all about?”

Toil and Trouble is a perspective adaptation of the classic play, Macbeth, by William Shakespeare. This comic series tells the story of Macbeth from the perspective of the three witches who appear early in the play to deliver a prophecy that Macbeth will soon become king of Scotland. In this story, readers follow Smertae, Cait, and Riata, the fates of Scotland, as they battle each other for the soul of Macbeth and the future of their nation. This is a supernatural horror tale that utilizes the comics medium to delve deeper into Shakespeare’s play and tell an entirely new story.

Pre-ordering is a great way to make sure you get the book, but it also tells stores that this will be a popular book. So if you are looking to support books that you enjoy, make sure to pre-order.

Toil and Trouble will be available on September 2nd. Over the next couple of weeks I’ll be posting some cool behind the scenes looks at the characters, art and writing process, so stay tuned.

Thank You,
Mairghread

Take a ride with some of the deadliest women in the Dynamite universe as they prove the only thing you have to fear… is them!

SoS-Chaos-Cov-A-Chin-60ce5So do you ever have that dream where one of your professional heroes emails you and asks you to write a book for them? Well, a few months ago that dream came true for me when Gail Simone asked me to write the Chaos special for her upcoming Swords of Sorrow series. Of course, my head exploded, but once I gathered all the pieces I wrote a really cool and nonchalant response email as I secretly said “Yes, Yes, YES!!!”

Swords of Sorrow is a 6-issue event where Gail brings together the coolest heroes of the Dynamite Universe. There will also be special tie-in issues by awesome ladies like Marguerite Bennett, G.Willow Wilson, Erica Schultz, Leah Moore, Emma Beeby, Mikki Kendall, and Nancy A. Collins. I get to write the Chaos special with art by Mirka Andolfo which introduces the antagonists of Gail’s series, Chastity, Purgatori, Mistress Hel, and Bad Kitty. These ladies are deadly and totally out of f*cks to give. They will rip your heart out and smile as they show it you.

Check out the awesome cover by Joyce Chin to the right and check out the full Swords of Sorrow announcement here.

So excited!
