The Nightmare Before Christmas gets a comic book sequel

One of the best things about Halloween isn't just the opportunity to share our beloved genre with the masses who are willing to give it "one shot" at this time of year, but we also get to relive some of the classic flicks we watched as kids.

I'm talking about, THE ADDAMS FAMILY, ADDAMS FAMILY VALUES, ERNEST SCARED STUPID (yeah, you read that right), HOCUS POCUS (yep, read that right again) and, of course, THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS.

If you're like me - and admit it you are - then you groove ever year to checking these flicks out again and again with a new generation of nieces and nephews. And the movie that tends to top that list - as far as the ones parents give the "okay" to first - is the classic NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS from Tim Burton and director Henry Selick.

Well, almost 25 years later the film is getting a sequel (of sorts) courtesy of Manga publisher Tokyopop. The company has secured a license for the first-ever comic book based on the film that will "expand the story beyond what was seen in Tim Burton's beloved 1993 holiday tale."
