Preview: Magic Is Upon Us In Mad Cave Studios’ ‘Potions, Inc.’ #1
by Brendan M. Allen
Mad Cave Studios has revealed a first look at Potions Inc. #1, their all-new adult comic series from Mad Cave Studios, written by Erik Burnham, with art by Stelladia, cover by Natasha Alterici, and letters by Micah Myers.
‘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.’
“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,” said Burnham. “I was given so many tools to help build the story, and best of all, I got to collaborate with a fantastic team; including our editor, Erica Schultz. 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.”
“As a ’90s child with a deep love for magic and humor this has been a dream project to me,” added Stelladia. “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!”
Potions Inc. #1 will be available at your local shop on June 8, 2022.
