Synopsis: The call of adventure always seems to hang up whenever Randelgast Jones tries to answer it, leaving him facing the dull future of working in his family’s successful potion shop. But when a powerful artifact is stolen from his parents and puts them under a terrible curse, Ran finally gets the quest he’s been after his whole life. He and his siblings set off to find the missing artifact – and its trail leads them from their homeland of Primaterra to the very strange realm of…Earth.

From visionary creators, writer Erik Burnham (Ghostbusters, TMNT), Amy Stelladia (Teenage Wasteland), and Ringo-nominated letterer Micah Myers comes a bewitching tale about leaving your comfort zone, and ultimately finding yourself. Featuring cover art by Ringo-nominated talent Natasha Alterici (Heathens), this limited series is an enchanting tale you won’t want to miss!

CREATOR SPOTLIGHT

Erik Burnham (He/Him) – Writer
Erik Burnham is a writer and cartoonist who was challenged to start making comics on a dare back in the early aughts…and then just kept on going until it became a career. He’s worked in just about every genre on both creator-owned and licensed comics, and still can’t believe how lucky he is to be able to do this. Those good feelings help distract him when he gets lost in the backwoods of Minnesota, where he makes his home.

“Getting brought on to Potions Inc. was a true pleasure for me – it mixed some of my favorite things (humor, fantasy, and 90s references) into one package. I was given so many tools to help build the story, and best of all, I got to collaborate with a fantastic team; editor Erica Schultz, artist Stelladia, and cover artist Natasha Alterici. Between the four of us we came up with a fully realized and fun little universe, and then we let the characters loose to play–it made the job feel like the opposite of work for me. I can’t wait for folks to meet the Jones siblings and learn all about the magic of Primaterra.” – Writer, Erik Burnham

Stelladia (They/Them) – Artist/Colorist
Stelladia is a Spanish comic artist and colorist with a background in visual development for animation. They enjoy working on fantasy, sci-fi and children tales (with a bit of spookiness in them). Some of their past work include The Wilds #4 (Black Mask), Submerged (Vault Comics), Metaphorical Her (Webtoon) or the animation short-film “Johanne” (Dragonbee). When they are not making comics, you can probably find them doing crafts, home-gardening or studying philosophy and anthropology.

“As a 90s child with a deep love for magic and humor this has been a dream project to me. These characters have been part of my family for a while now, a bright spot in the middle of this turbulent world we are living in right now. I hope this story brings you joy! I couldn’t ask for a better team, and Mad Cave is a great home for the Jones. Time to release some magic!”
– Artist, Stelladia

It does an excellent job introducing you to all of the major players as well as quickly bringing you in to the world of Primaterra, setting us up for what may be a journey of epic proportions, and I'm thoroughly excited to add this book to my pull list!”
