Fight Club remains one of the all time great plot twists of all time. When a 10-issue comic book series for Fight Club 2 was announced, I was concerned how the story goes forward after that big revelation. Now a few pages have been released along with a synopsis that has me intrigued. More after the break, just in case you’re the one person who reads a geek website but hasn’t seen/doesn’t know about Fight Club (because nobody will talk about it).
From the synopsis:
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.”
Tyler has been around for centuries? Oh, I’m in. Putting the 9-year old in mortal danger (because of course they will) I’m not looking forward to, but the rest should be a blast.
h/t to Greg for the link and Jimmy for talking about this comic in his sleep.
