Fight Club 2 is coming in 2015

Chuck Palahniuk is writing the second part of Fight Club. It won't be a new film (yet?)—Dark Horse is publishing this new story in a 10-issue maxiseries illustrated by Cameron Stewart, starting in 2015.

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 organization 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.


Well, that part about Tyler being around for centuries can be awesome or absolutely ridiculous. Whatever it is, I know I will read it. Here's a promotional illustration of the new series:

oh damn ... this scares me. while i have no issue with cashing in on a story and/or further developing it ... but in this case - there are so many things that can go terribly wrong that maybe it's not worth the risk. maybe this is one story that should not be further exploited ...

it seems to me he's taking a massive risk. that's simply not worth it ( in the sense that i just cannot see any way in which this can top the initial book so why risk so much for something that at best will be a decent follow up ? )

and then, you know ... a sequel to fight club ? wtf ? if ever there was a book/story/movie/whatever that DIDN'T call for a part two ... this is it.
