FIGHT CLUB 2 Plot and Release Details

If you're a fan of Fight Club,  you'll be very happy to know author Chuck Palahniuk is writing a sequel! The new story is coming to us in the form of a 10 issue limited comic series that will be illustrated by Cameron Stewart. This is a description of the story from Dark Horse Comics:

Fight Club 2 takes place alternately in the future and the past. It picks up a decade after the ending of his original book, where the protagonist is married to equally problematic Marla Singer and has a 9-year-old son named Junior, though the narrator is failing his son in the same way his dad failed him.

At the same time, Palahniuk says readers will have an idea of Tyler's true origins. "Tyler is something that maybe has been around for centuries and is not just this aberration that's popped into his mind."

Palahniuk brings back most of the characters in the first book as well as the organization Project Mayhem, which still has its hooks in the narrator as he has to save his boy when the youngster's life is in peril.

This sounds like it could be a great continuation to the story. I especially love that Palahniuk is going to dive into the mythology of Tyler. The series will be released in May of 2015, and I imagine that one day it will find its way to the big screen. I'll definitely be reading this.
