It’s like the old saying goes: “This might just be crazy enough to work.”
BOOM! Studios, which is already heading a coup with its licensing of the Incredibles and the Muppet Show (as well as great series like Unthinkable and Irredeemable), now has one more weapon in its arsenal:
Die Hard’s John %@$#%@#in McClane.
According to solicits, Die Hard: Year One is due out in August, and will go back in time to 1976 to explore John’s first year in the police force, a la Batman Begins or Casino Royale. Howard Chaykin will be writing, while Steven Thompson will be drawing, which already sounds to be completely awesome, especially considering how often people in the comics industry talk about Die Hard (I’m lookin’ at you, Dan Slott!).
Can I get a yippee ki yay from the reader base?
