There is a bit of a mystery about this title. Clearly, the cover proclaims that it is Atelier Lanaʻs The Amazing Adventures of Professor Jones. Several sites agree with this bold statement, listing Lana as the main artist and writer. However, the Michigan State University comics library disagrees, giving the following listing:
The Amazing Adventures of Professor Jones / story and art,
Kazuaki Ishida ; translation, Kuni Kimura ; English
adaptation, Elin Winkler. -- San Antonio, TX : Antarctic
Press, 1996- . -- ill. ; 26 cm. -- To be complete in 4
issues. -- "Mature audiences." -- Genre: Fantasy. -- Cover
title: Atelier Lana's The amazing adventures of Professor
Jones. -- LIBRARY HAS: no. 1-2. -- Call no.: PN6728.6.A5A47
So, is "Atelier Lana" a pseudonym for "Kazuaki Ishida"? Itʻs really quite unclear.
It is also currently unknown whether the series actually finished its run. Issues 3 and 4 may never have been printed. Until evidence is provided to the contrary, then, weʻre going to take the position that the series ended in December 1996 at issue #2.
