I probably was one of the two people who didn't know of Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas (and the other one is probably my sister). There is a movie, because duh Tim Burton, but I haven't seen it, I just know it exists. So I went into this pretty blindly and I actually ended up liking it! 

It tells the story of Jack Skellington aka The Pumpkin King, whose entire existence is limited to entertaining the people of Halloween Town. But Jack isn't happy with his life and feels like there has to be more to it than is offered to him. One day, while strolling around Halloween Town, he finds a strange place and strange doors, that lead to different worlds. He goes through one door and ends up in Christmas Town - where life is like he wants it to be! Everyone is happy and cheering and that is exactly what Jack Skellington wants for the people - so he takes matters into his own hands and decided to bring Christmas to Halloween Town. But will this end up being a good or a terrible idea? What will happen when Christmas comes to spooky Halloween Town? 

I really like the story. Especially around this time of year and as someone who doesn't celebrate Halloween or Christmas it's always fun to see these things from an objective point of view. I also liked the manga style of this. It was very easy to read and follow and as always, people who come up with this kind of stuff are insanely talented. I would definitely recommend this to everyone who likes those kinds of stories and it's always interesting to read them in Manga style.
