Williams made a name for himself back in 2006 with a run on "Robin." Since then, Williams has worked on a number of DC Comics series, including "The Flash" "JSA All-Stars," "Captain Atom" and "The Movement." His most recent gog included illustrating cosmic adventures in "Legendary Star-Lord" for Marvel Comics.

"The Infinite Adventures of Jonas Quantum" debuts in September.

Official Synopsis

Legendary Comics presents The Adventures of Jonas Quantum, an original sci-fi odyssey from two of the most exciting voices in superhero storytelling: Marc Guggenheim (writer of the hit TV series Arrow) and visionary artist Freddie Williams II (Justice League America, The Flash, Robin).

Meet Jonas Quantum: a maverick hyper-genius with the power to cure death in the morning, time travel in the afternoon and unlock transdimensional wormholes at night. And what have you done with your day?

Blessed with the curse of infinite intelligence, there's only one thing Jonas Quantum can't do: play well with others.

This thrilling action-adventure spans cosmic voyages, history-changing inventions, and delusions of grandeur.
