For the first time in 9 years I’m writing and drawing a book. Embarking on this is about as close as I’m gonna get to a mid-life crisis.

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.
