Likely Stories feels like speculative fiction and fantasy stories I’ve heard before. Serviceable, but — like its bar-swapped tales backdrop — a bit on the stale beer side of things. A reasonable pint, but the mythology munchies not as tasty. An ageless muse. A witchy cabin in the woods. A Dorian Gray like preservation (with an icky carnivorous twist.) It mostly made me hungry for mo’ better explorations into the weird. Buckingham’s art is high class, but I’d like to have seen him have the chance (or take the opportunity) to break out of the 9 to 12 panel grids more often.
