New details on upcoming Fight Club ‘sequel’ comic from Dark Horse
Writer Chuck Palahnuik has just announced more details about the proposed Fight Club 2 comic he first mentioned last year.
The comic, set to appear from Dark Horse in 2015, will be a follow up to the story that was adapted for the 1999 film directed by David Fincher that became a cult hit. Fight Club told the story of an unnamed insomniac narrator, his violent id come to life in the form of Tyler Durden, and an underground society built on bare-knuckle fighting and spreading anarchy.
The comic, which will have Cameron Stewart on art duties, will be set a decade after the ending of the original story, where the protagonist is married to equally problematic Marla Singer and now has a 9-year-old son named Junior, though the narrator is failing his son in the same way his dad failed him. The story will also feature Project Mayhem which Junior is somehow tangled up in.
Palahnuik has also given this rather cryptic statement regarding Tyler Durden,
“Tyler is something that maybe has been around for centuries and is not just this aberration that’s popped into his mind.”
Dark Horse Editor in Chief, Scott Allie, along with artist Cameron Stewart, cover artist David Mack, director David Fincher, Random House editor Gerry Howard, moderator Rick Kleffel and Palahniuk himself are set to appear on a panel Saturday night at San Diego Comic Con named ‘FIGHT CLUB: From Page To Screen and Beyond.”
