As announced earlier this year, the sequel to Chuck Palahniuk’s novel Fight Club, best known for its film of the same name, will be in the form of a ten-issue comic book, picking up with the nameless protagonist ten years later, married to Marla with a nine-year-old son. 

Marital bliss doesn’t last long as Tyler comes back, causing mayhem once again, like endangering the protagonist’s son.

Speaking of Tyler, Palahniuk has revealed that flashbacks in the sequel will show Tyler’s ancient origins, saying, “Tyler is something that maybe has been around for centuries and is not just this aberration that’s popped into his mind.” 

In the present, the protagonist deals with trying to return to Project Mayhem and Fight Club, but realizes how everything has changed, including himself, and the organization. 

Palahniuk said:

“He tries to go back and reclaim that phase of his life, and is just a pathetic failure. He’s not that person anymore. But beyond that, it’s what the organization has grown into in his absence and what he’s pulled back into.”

So are you eager enough to see more of Tyler and the unnamed protagonist to pick up the comic book series? Let us know!
