Nightmare Before Christmas Sequel Coming from Tokyopop

Originally announced by The Hollywood Reporter, Tim Burton's beloved animated movie The Nightmare Before Christmas will be getting a continuation series from manga publishing house Tokyopop. This comic book project is the first-ever expansion of the Tim Burton's 1993 holiday tale, and will be written by DJ Milky with art from Sudio DICE (Disney Manga: Beauty & the Beast). The upcoming manga will follow protagonist Jack Skellington's dog, Zero, as he gets lost in Christmas Town.

The project will initially be serialized in full-color single issues among comic shops before being collected into two trade paperbacks - one full-color and a black and white "pocket-sized" volume. The Nightmare Before Christmas: Zero's Journey is slated for a Spring 2018 launch.

This license continues the expanding relationship between Tokyopop and Disney in partnering to bring beloved tales to the manga format. Tokyopop has currently released several Disney Manga series include Stitch!, Beauty and the Beast, and Tangled.
