Chuck Palahniuk's 'Fight Club' comic-book sequel now has artist, publisher

Fight Club

(Dark Horse Comics)

In case you were prone to doubt the author of a book with a famously unreliable narrator, Fight Club 2 is really happening, and it is definitely going to be a comic book.

The news first broke at last year’s San Diego Comic-Con, although there were few details outside of a quick plot summary. Now, days before this year’s convention, Palahniuk has more to share.

In an interview with USA Today, the author announced that the project now has a publisher and an artist attached. The first issue of Fight Club 2, a 10-issue limited series with art by Cameron Stewart (famous for that hip new Batgirl redesign with fellow artist Babs Tarr), will be available in May 2015.

As for plot, the series will be set 10 years after the novel’s end, but will also deal with events set in the past. The protagonist of the novel has settled down with his troubled love interest Marla Singer and a nine-year-old son, with whom his relationship isn’t all that great.

Also making a return is the narrator’s personified id, Tyler Durden, whom Palahniuk hints is something different than we may have thought him to be.

“Tyler is something that maybe has been around for centuries and is not just this aberration that’s popped into his mind,” Palahniuk told USA Today.
