6 out of 10

While browsing at Barnes and Noble today I was tickled to find this manga adaptation of Tim Burton's now-classic (and delightfully quirky) animated film The Nightmare Before Christmas.

The problem is that, having seen the movie, it's difficult for me to know how I'd have responded to the manga without all that background. In some cases it seemed to help, as the manga adaptation does take some shortcuts here and there; in other cases I suspect it hurts, as I'm "hearing" the actors' voices instead of relying on the actual dialog. For fans of the movie this might be entertaining; for those who've never seen it, perhaps it'll inspire them to check it out!

[There's a TV Tropes page on the film and various spinoffs and adaptations, with some entertaining tidbits.]
