Originally shared by Grand Comics Database
Judd Winick (born 12 February 1970, USA) is a cartoonist, an author, and a comic book writer.
Some of his earliest work was the strip “Nuts and Bolts”, which he began during college. He also created hundreds of illustrations for “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to…” books.
In 2000, Henry Holt and Co. published Winick’s graphic novel about his friendship with ‘Real World’ castmate and AIDS educator Pedro Zamora, “Pedro and Me: Friendship, Loss, and What I Learned”, which was very well-received.
That same year, he began writing super-hero series at DC Comics with “Green Lantern” (2000–2003), and Marvel with “Exiles” (2001–2004).
He continued to write for DC through 2012, making major contributions to the “DC Universe” continuity. He worked on the ‘Infinite Crisis’ event, including the story revivifying Jason Todd as ‘Red Hood’, in 2005.
Winick won multiple awards for “Pedro and Me” in 2000 and 2001, from Publishers Weekly Best Book, to six separate ALA awards, to his first GLAAD Media Award. He also received GLAAD Media Awards in 2002 and 2003 for his work on “Green Lantern”.
