Too bad for John McClane, nothing's ever that easy. Join legendary industry creator Howard Chaykin on a thrill ride that's rung up over $1 billion in box office worldwide and become the gold standard for classic action! Yippee Ki Yay!

BONUS REVIEW by JIMMY HAYES
-Yippie Ki Yay!!! I can't believe that I love Die Hard as much as a COMIC BOOK as I do a movie! Howard Chaykin does an excellent job taking us back to John McClain's rookie year as a New York City Cop. The book has a gritty feel that makes you feel like you're in the 70's and that the comic was MADE in the 70's! I'm not familiar with artist Stephen Thompson, but I'm a big fan of his after this issue! The only dissapointing thing.......no bare feet on broken glass.
I give it 8 out of 10 Grahams
