A Die Hard Christmas: The Illustrated Holiday Classic

A delightful Christmas tale based on the action-packed Die Hard movie

All John McClane wants for Christmas is to reunite with his estranged family. But when his wife’s office holiday party turns into a deadly hostage situation, he has to save her life before he can get home in time for Christmas!

The unconventional fan-favorite movie Die Hard is now an illustrated storybook—complete with machine guns, European terrorists, and a cop who’s forced to rely on all his cunning and skills (and the help of a fellow officer) to save the day. Based on the classic “Night Before Christmas” poem and filled with whimsical illustrations, this cleverly reimagined homage is destined to become a holiday classic.

A Die Hard Christmas: The Illustrated Holiday Classic written by Doogie Horner and illustrated by JJ Harrison will be published on October 17, 2017.

Funko Introduces 8-Bit Pop!

After tinkering with the concept for a while, Funko is now able to produce stylized 8-Bit Pop! vinyl figures that meet the necessary requirements for a series with such complicated schematics. The line debuted with New York Comic Con 2017 exclusives from Batman, Dig Dug, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Pop! 8-Bit will focus on 80s and 80s-inspired licenses in order to showcase familiar figures in a new format without sacrificing its nostalgic sensibilities. “We are so excited with the look and feel of all of our first attempts at this 8-bit approach,” says Ben Butcher, Funko’s Vice President of Creative. “So many of our licenses have had some sort of vintage video game at one point or another that it allows us to produce a broad and varied line.”

While the first few will be released in conjunction with New York Comic Con 2017, 8-Bit Pop! shows no signs of slowing down in the future with more figures coming from some of your favorite TV and Netflix shows set in the 80s!
