Dark Horse chief Scott Allie talks Fight Club sequel Tyler Durden Lives – plus check out the cover!

February 8th, 2015 by Marc Comments


The guys at BleedingCool have been chatting to Dark Horse Editor-in-Chief Scott Allie about a few upcoming books, but the one that really made us prick up our ears was his spilling the beans on Tyler Durden Lives.

We’re all big Fight Club fans here at FTN , though we don’t talk about it – rule 1 – so this is a book we’re looking forward to getting our hands on.

“It’s 10 issues, which we’ll do in one giant hardcover, rather than doing a couple trades. It’ll be a beautiful book. Many issues are more than 22 pages, so the hardcover will be 10 issues of that and a fair amount of cool ancillary material that we’ll be including.”

The book is written by Fight Club writer Chuck Palahnuick and there’s a chance he might do more work for Dark Horse in the future: “We’ve talked about other stuff he might do next, though we haven’t nailed anything down. I don’t foresee him writing a run on Hellboy, although that would be pretty interesting. He’s done a great job of recognizing the potential in the artform and he’s done something unusual with it.

“Chuck will be coming to some conventions with us this year. One of the reasons he got into comics was an interest in comics culture and conventions, as well as hanging out with other comic creators and talking about graphic novels. He’s seen something that he likes in our community and wants to plug into it.”

Tyler Durden Lives is expected to be a sequel to the book rather than the movie and will be out on May 27th, 2015, but whatever you do, don’t talk about it.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
