Fans of Tim Burton’s 1993 classic, “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” we have some exciting news for you. A sequel to the iconic film is coming… to a comic book store near you! That’s right. Put away your 3D glasses, because the sequel won’t be in theaters. Nearly 25 years after the film’s original release, the story is getting new life in the form of a series of full-color, single-issue comic books that will later be turned into full-color paperbacks and tiny, black-and-white manga volumes.

Entitled “Nightmare Before Christmas: Zero’s Journey,” the series will follow Jack Skellington’s dog, Zero, as he gets lost in Christmas Town. The series is written by DJ Milky and illustrated by Studio DICE. It’s slated for a launch in Spring 2018.
