A Sequel to The Nightmare Before Christmas is Coming—to a Bookstore Near You
Jack Skellington may have found his happily ever after in Halloween Town, but Christmas Town still has some misadventures in store for his faithful ghost dog, Zero. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas will receive a comic book sequel, starring Zero, nearly 25 years after the movie’s original release.
Manga publisher TOKYOPOP has secured a license for the project, which will be titled Nightmare Before Christmas: Zero's Journey. The tale—which follows a lost Zero through Christmas Town—will initially be serialized as full-color single issues, and will later be published as full-color paperbacks and tiny, black-and-white manga volumes.
Zero's Journey is slated for launch in spring 2018. Until then, you can check out the cover art below, or get psyched for the comic's release by brushing up on your The Nightmare Before Christmas trivia.
