Head back to Halloween Town, 25 years later!
It’s kind of crazy that director Henry Selick’s The Nightmare Before Christmas hasn’t yet gotten a sequel, as it seems a no-brainer given how beloved the (dual) holiday classic is. But the story is soon getting a continuation in the form of a comic series, THR reports today.
Manga publisher Tokyopop will publish Nightmare Before Christmas: Zero’s Journey in Spring 2018, which expands upon the world Selick and Tim Burton took us into back in 1993.
The story will follow Jack Skellington’s dog, Zero, as he gets lost in Christmas Town.
“The format of the project will be unusual for the publisher; it will initially be serialized as full-color single issues released to comic book stores, before being collected in two different formats simultaneously, in full-color trade paperbacks and black and white pocket-sized manga volumes,” THR notes.
The series was written by DJ Milky, with art from Studio DICE.
