The Nightmare Before Christmas Wiki

Zero's Journey is a serialized comic book serving as the sequel to The Nightmare Before Christmas. It was an ongoing collection of 20 single-issues published by TOKYOPOP that were converted into traditional volumes. Issues were published monthly, and after the comic was converted into trade paperback, the issues were resized as black-and-white colored manga style, known as the Ultimate Manga edition.

According to the creators, Zero's Journey was a commemoration to the film's 25th anniversary.

Set in the wonderful world of The Nightmare Before Christmas as created by Tim Burton, explore the magical realms of Halloween Town and Christmas Town through the eyes of Zero as he tries to find his way home in an unfamiliar world in this brand new story written and created by TOKYOPOP."
