The existence of writer Chuck Palahniuk’s Fight Club sequel was first revealed at last year’s San Diego Comic-Con, with more details coming later, but today brings news of an official announcement and release information on the project.
According to reports, Fight Club 2 will be released as a 10-issue mini-series from Dark Horse Comics, launching April 8th, 2015. The series will be written by Palahniuk with pencils by Cameron Stewart, colors by Dave Stewart, letters by Nate Piekos, and covers by David Mack.

According to a USA Today story,
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.
Fans of the book and the 1999 movie based on the book should be very excited to read the sequel, particularly given the fact that the original writer is behind it, and the rest of the creative team is top notch as well.
Will you pick up Fight Club 2 once it reaches store shelves?
