Heat Vision is reporting that Paramount has bested Summit Entertainment and Warner Bros. in the bidding war for Last Man Standing: Killbook of a Bounty Hunter.

This is a coffee table book from Heavy Metal Publishing.

Scott Aversano is going to produce with Daniel LuVisi, who created Last Man Standing: Killbook of a Bounty Hunter.

It is going to be released in graphic novel form and online as well.

The story follows a bounty hunter named Gabriel. He was "created by a weapons organization to be part of its army of Paladins, 'a soldier with the talent of 500 soldiers.'" After Gabriel is framed and sent to prison, Gabriel breaks out and goes into the world of New Amerika. It is filled with, among other things, genetically enhanced shark-men, ninjas and burlesque girls. Gabriel's goal is to find out why he was set-up.
