If you've got a Facebook account (and have presumably friended Ms. Thompson) you'll want to head over to Jill Thompson's photo album to check out three sample pages she did of a Nightmare Before Christmas graphic novel adaptation. Sez the artist about the work:
All I know was that I did not get it....someone told me that Burton did not want a graphic novel adaptation...but then that Manga one came out...so- who knows what the reasons were. I liked what I did. I think I would have done a good adaptation. Maybe it woulda been a hassle. Liscensed things usually are a helluva headache.
Shame. I would have dropped down serious money to see her try to adapt this film.
