In the late 1960s Williamson teamed up with writer Archie Goodwin and together they produced the Secret Agent X-9 syndicated comic strip, and would later work together again on the comic adaptation of The Empire Strikes Back for Marvel Comics. After Russ Manning died in the early 1980s, Goodwin and Williamson took over the Star Wars syndicated comic strip, and the same team would produce the comic adaptation of Return of the Jedi for Marvel. In the 1990s Williamson became a regualar inker on various Marvel titles including working for several years on the Daredevil title. He also did the inking for the Dark Horse Comics adaptation of The Phantom Menace.
