Tokyopop reprinted a portion of the 2005 original graphic novel of the same name to celebrate Halloween ComicFest in 2016.

This is not a direct interpretation of the movie. Instead the graphic novel is based on the original poem Tim Burton presented to Disney while he worked as an animator there in the late 1970s and early 1980s. The illustrations are his as well.

Those only familiar with the movie may be disappointed due to the absence of some characters including Oogie Boogie who were later included in the movie. The illustrated novel further skips over the Halloween aspect and focuses solely on Christmas.

A Nightmare Before Christmas was released Oct. 29, 1993. The film grossed over $76 million in its initial run. Henry Selick directed the feature as Burton was busy with development of Batman Returns.
