Daniel LuVisi created the graphic novel, which is set 600 years in the future and follows a soldier who was created to help Earth win their war against Mars. He is framed by a terrorist organization for a crime he didn't commit, and, after spending nine years in prison, he sets out for vengeance against the terrorists. The graphic novel sold out in less than two hours at this year's San Diego Comic-Con.
Scott Aversano is producing Last Man Standing alongside Daniel LuVisi and executive producers Stephan Lokotsch, Russell Binder, and Peter Levin.
Kevin Eastman's Heavy Metal comic book label published the Last Man Standing graphic novel, which is being expanded into a full comic book series.
