I hesitate to write this, because Dan deserves to have the sales, so please understand that I am simply recommending not to get this book from Amazon:
Amazon's packaging, unfortunately, absolutely terrible. 2 of the corners on the hard cover book came smashed.
Book came laying flat in a box that was fit exactly to size in length and width, with 3 air bags placed on top. Having been on the pre-order waiting list for 3 months now, and waiting, this was very disappointing.
Replacement by Amazon shipped with even less care. Same box, no air bags this time. Corners smashed, again, but not as badly so I am giving up.
-Portraits of each character are rendered extremely hyper-realistically. The scrapbook layout fits perfectly well to help the readers drink in all the little details without getting overwhelmed. Artists will definitely have kick out of this!
-Even though it's a good 240 pages, the reader will not be bored by the witty commentary of each character introduced and the rich history of this world.
-The details paid attention in both creating the characters as well as the world they live in are stunning. From the bizarre to the fantastic, the creativity invested in these characters is extremely evident from, not just the artwork, but also from their background stories and Gabriel's commentary on them. I absolutely loved this distinctive and beautiful vision of a futuristic world
- Dan tries to flesh out each character in their way but sometimes it feels very clichéd with some of them (tragic past, abusive childhood, etc). Even though no two characters are the same, it still feels as though their stories have been told before and is all too familiar. But this is only with some characters, not all of course.
-Since this is only a guidebook of all, the story is only bare bones and so the writing, at times, seem very juvenile and underdeveloped. The tone, though supposed to be snarky and sarcastic, tends to sound immature at times. I'm probably being too nitpicky but it would be nice to know that there is some purpose to the protagonist aside from simply getting revenge on the people who framed him for crimes he didn't commit.
- It's very BIG (coffee table book sized) and so it may be a bit of a hassle for some. Though this is only a minor complaint, the size is WORTH containing the epic quality of its contents.
Overall, I can't say the Last Man Standing: Killbook of a Bounty Hunter is perfect and will astound everyone who comes within a four feet of it. But, it is definitely worth reading if you want to take a dive into the world of a dark but beautiful future.
The first thing you notice is one of two things: 1) This book is huge and heavy! 2) Gabriel just looks plain badass on the cover. Just holding it in my hands, i could feel an aura of ultimate epicness, it was just waiting for me to open it up and partake of this epitome of Raw talent and creativity.
Flipping to the inside, i take a look at the first page. It starts telling a story in the eyes of gabriel of how he got this book and his adventures he will take it on. The next pages are of a map explaining the new world after the Noman war. As you keep flipping the pages, your eyes get glued to the great design of each page and the compelling information and art that is on it. You soon realize that you are enraptured by this book and you cannot put it down. It's impossible! some force compels you to read onward, no matter how late it has gotten into the night (in my case).
Dan Luvisi has created an awe-inspiring story filled with lovable (some hateable), and interesting characters, each with their own back story and how they fit into Gabriels interesting journey to find those whom have wronged him. It is also done with some of the most mind boggling, realistic art that i have ever seen.
Bottom line is this: If you have any interest in either great art, a great story, or just pure awesomeness, then you will not regret purchasing this fabulous tome.
