Book #1 of Nightmare Before Christmas: Zero’s Journey was a quick and fun read! I had previously read the Free Comic Book issue of Zero’s Journey and felt totally teased by the preview. I just couldn’t wait to see what the full first book would be like.
Of course, when Book One arrived on my doorstep, I couldn’t wait to read it! When I picked it up, I just cruised right through it.
My Thoughts on Nightmare Before Christmas: Zero’s Journey by D.J. Milky, Kei Ishiyama, David Hutchison, Dan & Conne
Like I said above, I cruised right through this book! It only took me about fifteen minutes to read it. Granted I was so anxious to see what was going to happen next, I didn’t take my usual time looking at the artwork. So of course, when I finished the story, I went back to get a better look at the art… Which of course, I just loved
I was very excited to see that this was fully colored! When I read the preview, I was curious to see if this would be full color or if we would go back to the black and white style of Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas by Jun Asuka. I really enjoyed how dark the Halloween Town panels were, especially when compared to the brighter panels from Christmas Town!
Overall, I thought that the story was interesting! I like that Zero ends up back in Christmas Town where he learns more about the holiday first hand. Jack is clearly still a bit obsessed with the holiday! I loved seeing some of my favorites pop into the story:

Where this book ended just killed me! I cannot wait to see where this story goes next! I wonder if we will get to see some of the other holiday towns…
If you’re a fan of the film or books, I definitely recommend checking this one out!
