Boom Studiosdie hardFeaturedReview

One thing that stands out about the first Die Hard movie is how long it took to get to the end of the first act. It wasn’t until John McClane hot footed it across the hallway to the stairwell that the action finally took off. Once those first 30 minutes passed, the film turned into one heck of an action flick. For Boom! Studios’ Die Hard: Year One, issue three marks the beginning of the action.

Black LightningDCReview

When it all went to hell For the most part, the Year One stories from DC Comics tend to follow the origin stories of the characters with a little extra thrown in for taste.  In the case of Black Lightning, it looks like an entire retcon is taking place.  The Tobias Whale plot is still there, but toss in a dose of magic and mysticism, and Talia al Ghul and you’ve got a very different story from the one you read in the 1970’s.

According to a news report in Variety, Columbia Pictures has tapped Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky to write a script to re-unite the original cast (and possibly a new group of ghost busters) in an all new theatrical release. The scribes just wrote “Year One,” a comedy that was directed by Ramis. Ramis with Aykroyd wrote the first two installments of the films.
