Artist Freddie E. Williams II, a relative newcomer to the field known for his work on ROBIN and SEVEN SOLDIERS: MISTER MIRACLE, has signed an exclusive contract with DC Comics.

Williams first broke onto the scene with his work on superstar Grant Morrison's MISTER MIRACLE miniseries, part of his epic SEVEN SOLDIERS event. Currently, Williams II is teaming with writer Adam Beechen on the adventures of the Boy Wonder in the pages of ROBIN.

"I'm very happy that Freddie has decided to sign an exclusive with us," said Senior Editor Peter Tomasi. "He's a talented artist, a complete professional and incredibly enthusiastic - a true pleasure to work with. His art on ROBIN has been great and I'm glad to have him on my Bat-crew."

"I have loved and dreamed of drawing comics for as long as I can remember," Williams said. "So being a total fanboy this is a lifelong dream come true! When I got the call about the exclusive, I flipped out and even asked if it was a prank. I'm thrilled to have this opportunity and very flattered; I can't wait to get crazy with it! I have to thank Richard Bruning, Peter Tomasi and Michael Siglain - I owe each of you a life-debt."
