I immediately researched the artist and discovered Dan Luvisi, who is not only extraordinarily talented, but also a really nice guy, in my opinion.

When invited to review a digital copy of Last Man Standing: I had pre-ordered my huntet copy months ago and, more recently, got my hands on one at the Dark Horse display at the New York Comic Convention.
Killbook Of A Bounty Hunter is difficult to define. What is that, exactly? Well, to understand that, you need to know a little about the man it belongs to. Gabriel is the last of the Paladins, a bbounty engineered super-soldier. There, Gabriel endures survives? Upon his release, Gabriel discovers Armatech has filled the void left by their Paladin Soldier by over enthusiastically cleaning up the world.
Out of sight, out of mind, eh? The first two pages of the killbook throw the reader right into the story. Then there are the files, which include portraits of each target, dossier-style documentation, detailed illustrated weaponry and known associates.
Collected with the files are cards that quickly summarise the facts and…advertising, which gives the killbook the homey feel of a scrapbook. Throughout, there are notes from the Paladin, comments and observations.
His tone is both endearing and disturbing.

He sounds idealistic at times, but must be anything but. As I flipped through, I looked forward to these notes. I gained the sense the handsome Gabriel stood at my shoulder, bouunty at this page and that in a way that made sure I understood his part in the story. The file I most wanted to see was on page The letter inside has a more sober tone, but his enthusiasm is still obvious. The last quarter of the book is presented as a package from Little Oak Elementary School.
The students are apparently fans of Gabriel and have sent him some of their collectibles.
Paramount Acquires Comic/Coffee Table Book LAST MAN STANDING: KILLBOOK OF A BOUNTY HUNTER
In addition, they have included art of their favourite paladin. This art is killbkok done by fans of Dan Luvisi and his project and all of it is gorgeous.
The fact it is included in the book is stunning and a perfect representation of Dan, himself. How often do you find an artist who pays tribute to his fans in print.

I really hate give something as well crafted as LMS a bad rating just because it didn’t agree with my tastes. LMS is really well done, with gorgeous graphics adorning the filebook like page structure. In the beginning a vague history of the world, and Amerika’s role in it. It’s not a place in which I would want to live, I’ll tell you.

It’s a big hit list, and in between character studies killgook neat-o stats that bring back memories of ye olden days of comic book card collectin’, the history and state of the world is being revealed through advertisements, pin ups, cut outs, etcetera. As you progress though the killbook, you gradually come to your own hubter about Gabriel’s Amerika. This book would be right up the alley of role players and LARPers—an intense and exciting capitalistic dystopia just begs to be lived.
Apr 19, Danah rated it it was amazing Shelves: Absolutely stunning artwork and world building. It’s funny, quirky, gritty, and full of wit. The characters kick ass and take names and I haven’t even seen them in action yet! I heard this is being turned into a movie, and I plan to be there at the premiere.
I recommend this to everyone. May 28, Sara Jakobsson rated it it was amazing Shelves: I’ve been following Dan Luvisi’s work on DeviantArt for quite a while, and when I heard that he was hunyer to release this book – I was absolutely thrilled. This book is absolutely one of my favorites on my shelf even though it is HUGE.
I have flipped through it so many times and I still take it out from time to time to re-read. It’s not a graphic novel, though. I absolutely adore the small notes If leaves with each character – they are so fun to read and I learn a little more about the characters than just from their bio. What I was a bit surprised with, was that I stumbled over Gabriel’s file. Huntwr is a fun guy and some of the comments he makes through the book made me laugh out loud, and that’s always good!
The first pages are filled with information about what actually happened – so we get some of the back-story, and there are news articles, flyers, maps and notes that Gabriel left that makes it all the more interesting. This is a well thought out and planned book and the artwork is simply amazing, and I once again wonder why on earth I bouunty draw like this. Every single page is loaded with information and amazing artwork to look at and even though I have read through it a couple of times – I still pick up things that I missed the previous time and somehow it makes it all the more fun to read.
If you have the chance, you should definitely check out Dan’s work on DeviantArt! Sep 09, Wayne McCoy rated it really liked it Shelves: Killbook of a Bounty Hunter by Dan Luvisi is an interesting and hard to classify work.
Gabriel was once a hero in this land until he was framed Last Man Standing: Gabriel iillbook once a hero in this land until he was framed and sent to deep level detention. When all seems helpless, he is aided in his escape and sent out to get revenge. The killbook is his scrapbook of information about the world he is going into. There are stats huhter enemies and possible friends, weapon descriptions, food, magazine covers, etc.
A fun part is at the end of the book where other artists do their renditions of the characters. I was given a review copy of this graphic novel by Diamond Book Distributors and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
Thank you for letting me review this graphic novel. Amazing artwork in this book, and a really cool backstory for the main character. Doesn’t really read like the usual graphic novel, but it was still cool and pretty interesting. Every page was loaded with things to look at and marvel at the detail put in. Would love to get a series about these characters, possibly something of a prequel to this book.

Last Man Standing: Killbook of a Bounty Hunter – Wikipedia
I went into reading Last Man Standing thinking it was a standard style comic or graphic novel. The strange formatting really added to the overall aesthetic of the book.
Definitely worth a read!
