Chuck Palahniuk Announces FIGHT CLUB Sequel... And It's Gonna Be A COMIC!

Screen Shot 2013-07-22 at 23.17.33 While most people were geeking the fuck out over the inevitable shitshower that will the be the "realistic" Nolan/Schnyder Superman/BAtman movie, Dr Chuck Kerplunk quietly dropped the BOMB that he's wiring on a sequel to his mighty Fight Club... an it's gonna be a comic. Over to him:

About the graphic novel, it’s true.  Chelsea Cain has been introducing me to artists and creators from Marvel, DC and Dark Horse, and they’re walking me through the process.  It will likely be a series of books that update the story ten years after the seeming end of Tyler Durden.   Nowadays, Tyler is telling the story, lurking inside Jack, and ready to launch a come-back.  Jack is oblivious.  Marla is bored.  Their marriage has run aground on the rocky coastline of middle-aged suburban boredom.  It’s only when their little boy disappears, kidnapped by Tyler, that Jack is dragged back into the world of Mayhem.

It will, of course, be dark and messy.  Due to contract obligations it can’t come to light for a while.  Next year is “Beautiful You," followed by the story collection.  But since the Fight Club sequel will appear serialized in graphic form, my book publisher might allow me to launch it earlier than 2015.

Feel free to release any or all of this information.  We haven’t started to court a specific publisher, not until I hammer out the complete story.

This is exciting, but I'm pretty sure I'd rather have a book, as the first one was amazing, Chuck Kerplunk is definitely good at writing books, and writing comics is a very different discipline, and he might get a shit artist. Still, means there'll definitely be a movie, and I fucking loved the first one.
