It will be called “Nightmare Before Christmas: Zero’s Journey” and will be about Jack’s dog Zero and his adventure in Christmastown.

It will be produced as a full-color series released to comic stores, then will be combined into two formats: full-color trade paperback and a black and white pocket-sized version, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Tokyopop is teaming up with Disney on other projects, including “Kilala Princess,” where the title character meets Disney princesses Mulan, Pocahontas and Merida. The company has also published Disney “Descendants” stories and “Beauty and the Beast” tie-ins.

“The Nightmare Before Christmas” movie hit theaters in 1993. It was based on a poem by Tim Burton, according to Huffington Post.
