A follow-up at last

‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ sequel is coming next year – but it’s not a movie
The Tim Burton classic is set for a comic book sequel in Spring 2018

Next year will mark the 25th anniversary of Tim Burton's cult classic, The Nightmare Before Christmas. Over the years since its release in 1993, hopes and calls for a sequel to the beloved Halloween-meets-Christmas animation have gone unanswered—until now. However, unfortunately for Burton's fans, it won't be a movie, but a comic book sequel is set for release next year.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Manga publisher Tokyopop has secured the licensing rights to produce the follow-up project to The Nightmare Before Christmas. The series will be written by DJ Milky with art from Studio DICE. The first story, titled Nightmare Before Christmas: Zero's Journey, will follow the adventures of Jack Skellington's ghost dog Zero as he gets lost in Christmas Town.

 

Tokyopop will be releasing the story in a series of full-colour single issues, before producing it in full-colour trade paperbacks and black and white "pocket-sized manga" volumes. More information about the series is expected to be released in coming months.
