Fight Club is a critically acclaimed novel published in 1996 by author Chuck Palahniuk and moved on to become a cult classic film released in 1999 starring Brad Pitt and Edward Norton. The book and movie are both over ten years old but the message they delivered to audiences and readers around the world is still strong. Now, Palahniuk officially confirms that a 10-issue sequel series will be made Dark Horse Comics with artist Cameron Stewart working alongside him.
The series will take place ten years after the first book with the protagonist married to Marla Singer and father to a son who is simply dubbed as “Junior”. The protagonist will continue to attend the usual Fight Club sessions but things with his life, family, and fatherhood issues soon start to send things spiraling out of control. The origins of Tyler Durden is also said to be a main point of the series as he is “something that maybe has been around for centuries and is not just this aberration that’s popped into his mind,” Palahniuk says in an interview speaking about the protagonist.
The series is set to launch in May 2015 so if you haven’t read the book or even if you have, it’s time to revisit the story again. But, remember the first rule of Fight Club….
