Fight Club gets a Comicbook-Sequel

Chuck Palahniuk hat der Fan-Website The Cult gegenüber eine Meldung von der ComicCon bestätigt, laut der er an einem Sequel zu Fight Club arbeitet. Das Teil wird nicht vor 2015 erscheinen und Tyler Durden wird diesmal der Erzähler der Geschichte sein – gefangen im Körper von Jack. Ich weiß nicht, ob das insgesamt 'ne gute Idee ist, aber das Comic wird ein definitives Must Read. Hier die Bestätigungsmail von Chuck himself:

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.
