Neil Gaiman, Mark Buckingham, Chris Blythe: Neil Gaiman's Likely Stories (2018, Dark Horse Comics) 4 stars

Adapted short stories

No rating

Adapted short stories always read a bit oddly in comic book format. Artist / script writer Mark Buckingham (from Fables) preserved a lot of Gaiman's writing and descriptions, so the pages are dense with panels and text (sometimes 16 panels in a page).

This will take longer to read than you expect, but it's well worth the time. The stories are eerie and engaging, and Buckingham truly does have a beautiful style.
