201209040140 Judd Winick is back to the drawing board


Following his departure from writing Batwing for DC, cartoonist Judd Winick is back to writing AND drawing, as the above tweet shows. A few months ago, he told Newsarama he was writing and drawing an original graphic novel for kids, so that’s probably the project he alludes to above.

Although best know as a writer on such books as Batwing, Catwoman, Green Arrow, Green Lantern, The Outsiders, Exiles and many many more, Winick first became known as a cartoonist on the acclaimed Pedro and Me, and The Adventures of Barry Ween, Boy Genius. He also created the cartoon series, The Life and Times of Juniper Lee, so he’s familiar with the kid market.

    That’s cool. I’ll pick up it up. I like Judd’s work.

    Hmmm… move another marker from “work-for-hire” over to “creator-owned”.

    And move another marker from “superheroes” to “kid’s books”.

    WOW!

    #9 Walking Dead (creator owned)

    3 are kids, 4 are Batman, 2 are adult (college reading), one is creator-owned.

    Last week, is was 3 Batman, 2 kids, 2 memoir, 3 creator-owned (if you count Vertigo).

  4. Good for Winick. His older self-written/drawn stuff was always far and away better than his Big Two work.

    Hopefully he can make a living as an independent creator.

  5. If this can FINALLY get us some new Barry Ween………..

    He spent a little while being mentioned in the same breath as Art Spegielman.
    Then he went on to writing comics about a purple lady with huge boobs who traveled between fantasy dimensions, fighting people.

    I hope this next project is closer to the former.
