Tokyopop to Release Nightmare Before Christmas Sequel Manga
posted on by Rai Kelly
Tokyopop announced via The Hollywood Reporter on Monday that it will release a Nightmare Before Christmas sequel manga titled Nightmare Before Christmas: Zero's Journey. The manga will continue the story of Tim Burton's 1993 film.
The manga sequel will follow Zero, Jack Skellington's ghost dog, while he is lost in Christmas Town. DJ Milky (pseudonym of Tokyopop founder Stu Levy) is writing the story, and Studio DICE (Tokyopop's Beauty and the Beast manga) is providing the art.
The sequel manga is slated to launch in spring 2018. Tokyopop will first release full-color single issues at comic book stores before publishing two different graphic novel formats: full-color trade paperbacks and black-and-white "pocket-sized" volumes.
Tokyopop previously released a manga adaptation of The Nightmare Before Christmas. Jun Asuka drew the manga and Natsuki Minami provided the cover art, pictured right.
