In news that should surprise no one who saw this coffee-table-book sized comic’s premier at San Diego Comic Con, Paramount has bought the rights to Daniel LuVisi’s Last Man Standing: Killbook of a Bounty Hunter with plans to turn it into a franchise. Also not shocking: it’s about a wrongly-convicted soldier on the lam who is kicking ass in the future.

Daniel Luvisi first created and illustrated Last Man Standing as an art-filled coffee table book based on the life of Gabriel, an invincible soldier in alternate universe set 600 years in the future.   Heavy Metal intends to publish a Last Man Standing graphic novel, and producer Scott Aversano (The Last Airbender) will work with Luvisi to bring Gabriel to the multiplex.

On the official site, they promise “laughing, crying, sex, violence, robots, ninjas, burlesque girls, body builder sharks and sh-t you wouldn’t fathom.”  I like where this is going, but will there be dinosaurs? A monster-hunter with boob cannons?  Meerkats in watermelons?  A sharkdog?  A gentleman yeti?  I have very refined tastes.
