Die Hard begins

Prequels and origin stories are all the rage these days and if they're not on screen, they're on paper, apparently. Boom Studios recently announced the released of "Die Hard: Year One", in which we learn just exactly what made John McClane the irritable bastard we've come to know and love. Here's Boom's official plot synopsis:

Every great action hero got started somewhere: Batman Began. Bond had his Casino Royale. And for John McClane, more than a decade before the first DIE HARD movie, he's just another rookie cop, an East Coast guy working on earning his badge in New York City during 1976's Bicentennial celebration. 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!
