Fight Club 2 is here, the first six pages of Chuck Palahniuk’s 10-issue comic book series illustrated by Cameron Stewart and published by Dark Horse are here. The first issue will hit the stores on May 27. Check out the cover and the first page:
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 organisation 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.
Like I said before, that part about Tyler being around for centuries can be awesome or absolutely ridiculous. I will at least buy the first issue.
