Fight Club is back folks! Chuck Palahniuk is teaming up with Dark Horse Comics to bring our unnamed anti-hero back to life for a second round in a 10-issue series.
Picking up a decade after the original story, we now find our unnamed narrator married to his mind warped lover Marla Singer. The couple has a 9 year old boy named Junior, who unfortunately is being failed by his dad in the same way the narrator’s dad failed him. According to Palahniuk, we also will get a special look into the origins of the character who defined cool in the late 90’s, Tyler Durden. “Tyler is something that maybe has been around for centuries and is not just this aberration that’s popped into his mind.”
Returning for round 2 is the group that formed from Fight Club, Project Mayhem. The narrator will still have some form a connection with them as they will play a role in Junior’s life being in danger with his father having to save him.
I’m not too sure about the idea of Tyler being some centuries old specter, it sounds a bit like the Dark Passenger from the Dexter novels, but it will be fun to see the gang reunited again, and in a comic book no less. Look for Fight Club 2 to hit your local comic shop in May of 2015.
