Chuck Palahniuk Plans a Graphic Novel Sequel to Fight Club

July 23, 2013


One of the biggest surprises to come out of Comic-Con is word that author Chuck Palahniuk is planning a graphic novel sequel to his 1996 debut novel "Fight Club." Today, Palahniuk updated fan site Chuckpalahniuk.net with the following official statement:

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.


"Fight Club" was, of course, the basis for David Fincher's feature film of the same name. Released in 1999, Fight Club starred Brad Pitt, Edward Norton and Helena Bonham Carter. There's no word yet on whether or not this new graphic novel could lead to some form of theatrical sequel, but the door to such a project would certainly appear to be open.
