This year's San Diego Comic-Con might be a distant memory for some (or most), but production deals are still happening. In the latest news, Paramount picked up the rights to writer-illustrator Dan LuVisi's two-year-and-a-half-in-the-making, 230-page graphic novel,Last Man Standing. According to Deadline, Paramount has purchased the rights to develop the title as a "multi-platform franchise property." As described on publisher Heavy Metal's website, Last Man Standing is less a straight-up story than a prologue and bible. Heavy Metal, owned by Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtlesco-creator Kevin Eastman, expects to expand the graphic novel into an ongoing comic-book series. Last Man Standing sold out within two hours of going on sale at Comic-Con. A new printing will be available in early September for purchase through Heavy Metal's website.
