Did anyone else play the Fight Club game that came out for Xbox? Highly underrated game, great story line, amazing physics — and the greatest thing about it was Abraham Lincoln was an unlockable character. There was no sequel because the video game community is filled with jaded and elitist nerds that align themselves with production studios and are incapable of seeing the bigger picture — whatever that is. Game Informer even placed Fight Club on their list of Top 10 Fighting Games We’d Like to Forget.
People better not complain about this sequel to the original Fight Club novel. Granted, people will — but only because they’re required to meet a certain quota of hate every day. According to Fight Club creator Chuck Palahniuk (via this interview), a sequel to his book is being made, only it will turn into a graphic novel series and apparently the creators of Marvel, DC and Dark Horse are all advising Chuck on how to make this thing work.
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 it appears Tyler Durden will be the narrator for this series, which is somewhat strange since he wasn’t really supposed to exist in the first place. Either way, 2015 can’t get here soon enough — which is why we need someone to invent time travel within the next two years.
