About the Author

JUDD WINICK grew up on Long Island, where he spent countless hours doodling, reading X-Men comics and the newspaper strip Bloom County, and watching Looney Tunes. Today, Judd lives in San Francisco with his wife, Pam Ling; their two kids; and their cat, Chaka. When Judd isn't collecting far more action figures and vinyl toys than a normal adult, he is a screenwriter and an award-winning cartoonist. Judd has written bestselling comic book series, including Batman, Green Lantern, Green Arrow, Justice League, and Star Wars, and was head writer on the Hulu network's animated series, The Awesomes. Judd also appeared as a cast member of MTV's The Real World: San Francisco and is the author of the highly acclaimed graphic novel Pedro and Me, about his Real World roommate and friend, AIDS activist Pedro Zamora.

Reviews

"A wholeheartedly weird and wonderful tale of friendship, acceptance, and robots."
--Kirkus Reviews starred review

"Diverse characters, good friends, and humorous dialogue coupled with colorful illustrations and plenty of action makes this a must-have for all children's graphic novel collections." --School Library Journal starred review

"This is lively and entertaining adventure with enough risk to give it heft and plenty of solid friendship to keep readers buoyed... Lush, bright colors and a freewheeling approach to panels create an immersive environment: it's clear that this is art, and it's also clear that the art is running the show, not the panels or even the words. Readers will likely find it a tough wait for the next volume to come along."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books starred review
