Last Man Standing
Nerdist News gets an exclusive look and interview with the creator of the masterpiece everyone will soon be talking about
This past spring we gave you the heads-up on pre-ordering LMS: Killbook of a Bounty Hunter, the 230-page character bible for the story by ultra-talented creator Dan LuVisi. The book has been generating a ton of buzz in recent weeks, and its much-anticipated unveiling will be taking place next month at San Diego Comic-Con. In the meantime, Dan was kind enough to share with GCD exclusively the remarkable art you see here. He also provided us with the following description when we asked him to tell the GCD audience exactly what LMS is all about:
“Last Man Standing, or LMS, takes place 600 years in the future, in an
alternate universe and is about Gabriel, this invincible soldier, who's
been created to help win a war Earth got itself too deep into with
Mars. After Gabe wins the war, he comes back down to Earth and is
celebrated as this incredible hero. From there, he becomes somewhat of
a celebrity, a Superman of this story, but then it all takes a quick
turn. Gabriel is framed for an atrocious crime, by a terrorist
organization known as Pandemonium and their leader, Dante. He is then
sent to Level-9 Facility, where he'll spend the next nine years in the
worst prison of all time. Once Gabriel breaks out, only then does his
true story begin, and the lies and twists unravel.
“As for the entire series, it's a story of mine I've been crafting over the past two and a half years. I want it to be a graphic novel series, but start it in a non-traditional type way. Where most comics start off with a first issue, this starts off with a 230-page bible of a book, Killbook of a Bounty Hunter, that sets up the entire universe of the LMS world. But not only that, the audience gets an incredibly deep perspective on the protagonist, Gabriel, and what his plans are now that he's escaped from Level-9.”
