    According to Deadline.com, Paramount has just closed a deal to purchase Dan LuVisi's graphic novel LAST MAN STANDING (LMS) and develop it as a multiplatform franchise property. Deadline reports that Scott Aversano will produce with Daniel LuVisi. The project will be executive produced by Stephan Lokotsch, Russell Binder, and Peter Levin.


    A limited run of LMS: Killbook of a Bounty Hunter was pre-released (and sold out) at San Diego Comic-Con and is anticipated for public release this September. It is being printed under Kevin Eastman's Heavy Metal Publishing (pre-orders at heavymetal.com). The massive hardcover book is presented like a scrapbook (killbook) composed by the main character, Gabriel. It acts as a prologue to a planned comic book series, introducing fans to the rich sci-fi world Dan LuVisi has created.


    Last Man Standing takes place in the far future and follows an invincible soldier named Gabriel who is a celebrated hero after leading the forces of Earth to victory over Mars. However, he is soon framed for a terrible crime by a terrorist organization and sent to heavily fortified prison called Level-9 before escaping nine years later.

    My introduction to LMS came on Day 2 of Comic-Con when my friend and co-worker Jess C. Horsley showed me his recently acquired copy. I was instantly drawn to its incredible cover (pictured top) and equally incredible size - a coffee table book big 15" x 12". Hardcover. $35. Wow. Flipping through the book (well you can't really "flip" the pages, more like lift them with both hands) and I was further sucked in by the vivid art - a mix of hyper-realistic digital character paintings and what can best be described as video game inspired graphics: Stark icons, futuristic pamphlets and action figures (!). I picked up my copy the next day and happily got it signed by Dan LuVisi ("Get Some!"). It wasn't until I returned home and actually started READING LMS - Gabriel's personal bios on himself, friends and soon-to-retired enemies, fan mail, etc. - that I came to fully appreciate how amazing LMS was. It's a homage to everything from Halo to Eastman's very own Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, yet all so fantastically rich and original. Passionate sci-fi fans owe it to themselves to check this book out. I couldn't be more excited.
