The Story

Frank Kane, the last known survivor of The Last Spartans MC, walks a perilous path guided by ancient Spartan maxims, but his journey takes an otherworldly turn as visions and omens from the gods beckon him to break his parole and risk his freedom to rescue a kidnapped child from the clutches of Atlanta's human trafficking underworld. 

When determined decoy agent Amanda Harper crosses his path, fed up with government bureaucracy and on a mission to "save them all," they both find an unlikely ally in a monumental showdown against an international cartel. 

If you like...

  • Film and TV like: TAKEN and SONS OF ANARCHY
  • Books like: THE PUNISHER 
  • Action, adventure, crime dramas 

 …you’ll love THE LAST SPARTAN: RED TAPE.

I knew human trafficking was a problem. I didn’t know how much it would affect me until I met Frank Kane.

Listen, in my line of work, I’ve seen some vile, unconscionable acts. Most of the time, I play the people doing them. But I have to tell you, these stories from my fans: Stories like nieces being drugged at clubs, bouncers saving one victim only to find three other girls chained in a hotel room—THAT’S the true horror. Shockingly often, human trafficking affects the people around us, the people we love...and we just don’t know it.

Doing research for this graphic novel opened my eyes to the reality of human trafficking. It went from being this unfathomable monster to a sadistic demon living in my own backyard.

We NEED to put an end to this horrible crime against humanity. I believe that together, we can.

Thank you for telling your stories. Thank you for being here and reading this far. Thank you for caring. And thank you for donating to this project.

Marc Silvestri

Marc Silvestri made history as one of the founding partners of Image comics in 1992. Creator, businessman, savant, writer, teacher, artist... these are only a few of the words that one would associate with Marc.

He is well known for his work on iconic Marvel titles such as The X-Men, Wolverine and The Incredible Hulk. As CEO of Top Cow Productions, his mandate was specific; produce the next generation of heroes and do it different than everyone else. Marc masterminded the Top Cow Universe through properties like Cyber Force, Witchblade, and The Darkness. When Hollywood started its love affair with comic book characters in the mid-1990s Marc helped position Top Cow as a vital production company in film and television. In addition to comic books, Marc has acted as Executive Producer in a variety of other media including the Witchblade television series and anime series, the Wanted feature film, the A-Team feature film, and two successful video games based on The Darkness. Marc‘s much anticipated Batman/Joker team-up book for DC comics will no doubt showcase his ongoing commitment to innovate and strive to always evolve as a creator and artist.

Omi Remalante Jr.

Omi's coloring career started as a hobby and turned into a full-time job around 2009. His first professional published work was with Zenescope Entertainment. This eventually landed him work for several American publishers like Image Comics, IDW, Aspen Comics, Valiant, and Dark Horse. Omi is currently coloring for Dynamite Entertainment, Opus Comics, and several small independent publishing companies. When not working on comic books, he enjoys collecting action figures, vintage comic books, and assembling Gunpla kits.

Siya Oum

My Dad did it.  He took my brother and I, to our first comic book shop in the early 90's.  Our first comic books were "Swamp Thing" and "Wolverine #52".  I saw all the t-shirt ads with Jim Lee's art inside.  That's what happened, Jim Lee happened.  I searched everywhere for Jim's X-Men run.  Finally, after having lunch at Pike Place Market for the first time, we walked downstairs to the coolest comic book shop ever('til this day)  Golden Age Collectables.  There we picked up "X-Men #1".  My future was sealed...inside a comic protective sleeve.

The rest, is comic present, and history.  I have been working in comics for about ten years.  It continues to challenge me, and I don't plan on slowing down.
