You DO NOT talk about “Fight Club.” Thankfully, Chuck Palahniuk will be breaking that cardinal rule with his highly-anticipated sequel, “Fight Club 2.”
According to USA Today, the author will collaborate with interior artist Cameron Stewart and cover artist David Mack to create a 10-issue comic maxiseries for Dark Horse Comics.
The comic series will bring back the book’s central characters, the unnamed narrator, Marla Singer and Tyler Durden, and will explore the narrator failing his 9-year old son Junior in the same way that his father failed him.
“The original 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,” Palahniuk told USA Today. “Now to find myself at the age that my father was when I was trashing him made me want to revisit it from the father’s perspective and see if things were any better and why it repeats like that.”
The sequel featuring bare-knuckle brawls and romanticized anarchy was birthed at last year’s Comic-Con in New York.
“I messed up and said I was doing the sequel in front of 1,500 geeks with telephones,” Palahniuk said. “Suddenly, there was this big scramble to honor my word.”
“Fight Club 2″ will hit stores on April 8, 2015.
