Exclusive Preview: Neil Gaiman & Mark Buckingham Reunite in <i>Likely Stories</i>

While it has the undeniable benefit of working with great source material, Dark Horse Comics’ Neil Gaiman Library can still boast of not yet producing a single dud. From Colleen Doran’s twisted-storybook take on Troll Bridge to Rafael Albuquerque’s expertly shadowy rendition of A Study in Emerald, every one of Dark Horse’s Gaiman adaptations has captured the indelible essence of its source material while adding whole new visual dimensions. Likely Stories, out October 3rd, looks to continue that pedigree, as longtime Gaiman collaborator and Fables artist Mark Buckingham adapts a set of loosely connected short stories (previously made into a live-action streaming anthology) into an unsettling trip through Gaiman’s trademark darkly fantastical imagination. Ahead of the hardcover’s publication next week, Paste has an exclusive first look at Buckingham’s interior art below. Be sure to pick up Likely Stories in your most-liked store on October 3rd.
