Chuck Palahniuk Confirms ‘Fight Club’ Graphic Novel Sequel
While others may be getting their red spandex undies in a bunch over the Batman vs. Superman movie announcement, this is a much bigger and more exciting story for me.
Chuck Palahniuk was at the recent Comic-Con event in San Diego to sign advanced copies of his upcoming novel, the second part of the Doomed trilogy. During the convention, the acclaimed author and Pasco native met with fans and took part in a panel called ‘Ode To Nerds.’ When asked about his next project, Chuck dropped the news that he’s working on a follow-up to 'Fight Club' in graphic novel format.
According to the Chuck Palahniuk Tumblr:
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.
So even though it might be a couple years before we actually get our hands on the first installment in the graphic series novel, it is going to happen. The next question, will the graphic novel sequels get turned into a movie?
