Last year, when Chuck Palahniuk announced that he was producing a graphic novel sequel to the hit novel Fight Club, fans weren’t sure what to think. The very idea of Fight Club was to rebel against commercialism, yet a sequel embodies every single idea commercialism is all about.
But while Fight Club 2 seems like it could just be a giant cash in, Palahniuk is assuring fans that the graphic novel is moving forward with the el of some award winning talent. In his latest update on the progress of Fight Club 2, Palahniuk stated he was enlisting the help of Eisner Award winning writer Matt Fraction.
The graphic novel “script” for the Fight Club sequel has gone off to the writer Matt Fraction and to an unnamed publisher for review. Matt writes his own series, called “Sex Criminals” and does very well. He’s been my go-to advisor about format and other considerations of graphic scripts. I’ll be choosing an illustrator based on their response to the script. The sequel will consist of seven issues, totally more than 210 pages. Fingers crossed. – Chuck
The biggest question fans have is if the graphic novel will produce a film sequel, which seems unlikely at this time. Nevertheless, word that the talent Palahniuk is eliciting even more talented help for Fight Club 2 should help keep even the most skeptical of fans intrigued by the sequel.
