    • Judd: I'm sounding like a broken record, but it's kind of like Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets The Simpsons. That's the simplest way to put it. At the end of the day, it's about a little girl who fights monsters. There's a rather massive backstory to the whole thing, which really provides a spine to build from.

  • He created the series The Life and Times of Juniper Lee.

    Judd Winick is amazing. I like his new show "The Life and Times of Juniper Lee" because the animation is cool and the action is awesome. I love the character Juniper Lee because she is hot and she can kick but. If Judd Winick did not create The Life and Times of Juniper Lee, then i would not have a magic themed action/adventure show to watch.
