If you have taken a look at comic book shelves recently, you will notice that among the myriad of superhero, science fiction, and supernatural stories that are being told there is one concept that seems to be missing: time-traveling super geniuses. Well, if you’ve been missing that sub-genre, you’re in luck, because Legendary Comics announced today that it will be publishing a new series titled The Infinite Adventures of Jonas Quantum written by the producer/writer of Arrow, Marc Guggenheim. Marc will be joined by DC Comics alum Freddie Williams II who will provide the artwork for the title. Legendary has released an official synopsis of the series, along with the first look at Mr. Quantum himself.
“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.”
At the time of this writing, the series is slated for a monthly release, the first of which will be hitting comic book store shelves in September.
