Yippee-Ki-Yay an Illustrated Die Hard Christmas Book is on its Way (GALLERY)
Some people might say that the Bruce Willis starring action flick, Die Hard, doesn’t qualify as a legitimate Christmas movie. Those people would be wrong. To prove just how wrong they are, comedy writer Doogie Horner and illustrator J.J. Harrison are giving us the best holiday gift to look forward to: A Die Hard Christmas book.
A Die Hard Christmas: The Illustrated Holiday Classic will be a short, 32 page gift of joy that is reminiscent of Christmas classics such as T’was the Night Before Christmas (A Visit from St. Nicholas). A few preview pages have been released to show just how amazing it will be. Although they may look to capture the attention of children, this holiday classic is surely meant to be aimed at an adult audience. You can check out a preview gallery below:
As can be seen in the gallery above, A Die Hard Christmas: The Illustrated Holiday Classic focuses on all of the key elements to the story from the 1988 film. Bruce Willis‘ character John McClane and the late Alan Rickman’s Hans Gruber will fight for control of the Nakatomi Plaza. Unfortunately, the book looks to be a poetic narration of the story and doesn’t seem to feature any of the classic spoken lines from Steven E. de Souza and Jeb Stuart’s script, but what would a Die Hard Christmas book be without a “yippee-ki-yay”?
The book will be available in time for the holidays with an October 17th, 2017 release, retailing at $16.99. Are you ready to join John McClane to save Nakatomi Plaza and Christmas once again? Will John get the machine gun? What do you think of the Die Hard Christmas book? Will you be asking Santa for a copy? Let us know in the comments section below.
