Straight for the art | Jill Thompson’s Nightmare

Thompson's 'Nightmare'

Thompson's 'Nightmare'

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.

If anyone is perfect for adapting Nightmare Before Christmas, it’s Jill Thompson! It’s too bad she didn’t get a chance to do this.

I am confused about the comic book license thing with Nightmare, too.
