Graphic Novel #15: Live Free, Die Hardy!
« on: April 11, 2008, 02:31:43 AM »
The title of the 15th installment in The Hardy Boys Graphic Novel series has been revealed on Amazon.com as ''Live Free, Die Hardy!''. It will be released on November 25, 2008, in both paperback and hardcover format.

Note that the title is a play on the title of the most recent film in Bruce Willis's Die Hard series, ''Live Free or Die Hard'', in much the same way as ''A Hardy's Day Night'' is a play on the first Beatles film, "A Hard Day's Night".

I'm not trying to complain here, but can't Papercutz come up with some more original title's than spoofing movie titles?

Yeah, A little annoying. Of course, they alreasy have done over 700 books, they have to be running out of names! :D
Don't worry, I have a plan.

Well, look at the Star Trek series.  Over 700 episodes plus around 1200 print novels and short stories, and sure they are reusing a few names, but they are still able to come up with good titles.

I just got #13 The Deadliest Stunt today, and at the front where it shows all the other graphic novels, there is a picture for Live Free Or Die Hardy, and the picture shows the Hardy's lying on the ground with the father and twin sister team from WARD standing over them.

Also notice that the name has been slightly changed from ''Live Free, Die Hardy!'' to ''Live Free or Die Hardy''. I guess because Papercutz hasn't been changing the cover lately so they feel the need to change the names.  :P

It would be nice if they did, but I don't think Papercutz is in the habit of sending SkyWarp book info before, like say Amazon, so keep checking there.

Unless SkyWarp asked...maybe they would then...

Hmmmm, I should see if I can ask them.  I got the high-res versions of the images for the upcoming video game just by asking.  Different company though, so who knows.

For their Tales of the Crypt series Papercutz wrote'', ''To request further information or preview art, please contact Papercutz editor Jim Salicrup at salicrup at papercutz dot com'', so it's probably the same with The Hardy Boys series.

That would be a pretty valuable asset to the website if they would send it to SkyWarp. Let's hope...

SkyWarp now has the cover on the site! Unfortunately it's the same size as the version in Graphic Novel #13, since, by the looks of it, it is just that, a scan from GN #13. I guess Papercutz didn't send the cover.  :(
