Launching in September 2017, Joe Books will publish the graphic novel adaptations of emojified versions of Disney Beauty and the Beast, Disney Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Disney Zootopia. Joe Books has had enormous success with its cinestory comics, which capture fan-favorite animation in graphic novel format, publishing over 40 titles and shipping over 800,000 units since the company's inception in 2014.
