When I first heard there was going to a sequel to Fight Club, I was immediately against it, assuming it was going to be in film form.
But then I learned it was going to be in comic book form, and I felt less nervous about it.
And it’s even going to be written by Chuck Palahniuk himself!
Dark Horse is going to publish a 10-issue arc, illustrated by Cameron Stewart, that takes place both before and after the events from the 1996(!!) book, “re-examining themes from the first book from a new perspective,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Palahniuk himself revealed a bit more about not just the series, but the enigmatic, controversial book — nearly 20 years later:
[T]he first book was “such a tirade against fathers—everything I had thought my father had not done combined with everything my peers were griping about their fathers,” the sequel—which features the son of the original, unnamed, protagonist—comes from the fact that he “now… finds myself at the age that my father was when I was trashing him” and explores whether the protagonist can be a better father than his own.
There also may or may not be a big reveal about just who — or what — Tyler Durden actually is.
Fight Club 2 will arrive April 2015.
