Fight Club Is Reopened In Graphic Novel Form

He’s broken the first rule of Fight Club by talking about it but author Chuck Palahniuk has some good news for fans of finding oneself through fisticuffs.

Palahniuk is planning a series of graphic novels to bring the Fight Club story bang up to date.

Appearing at San Diego Comic Con last week, Palahniuk announced that the cult book would be set ten years after the apparent death of Tyler Durden.

Fanboys will remember Durden as the second personality the novel’s narrator Jack developed to cope with the stress of modern living (think Brad Pitt to Ed Norton in the David Fincher film adaptation).

It was a personality that led Jack to set up the bare knuckle fight club of the title, bomb up his condo and pre empt those ‘Carnival Against Capitalism’ kids with his anti consumerist outfit ‘Project Mayhem’.

A lesson to us all then, to maybe work in a little ‘me’ time into the schedule lest we end up assaulting the poor bloke in Starbucks who spells names wrong.

Fans of black humour might even want to add Fight Club to Esquire's funny holiday reads.

Anyway, the deal with Fight Club: the graphic novels is that Tyler’s back and ready to kick Jack’s suburban slump to the kerb when he kidnaps his kid. According to the author, things will get 'dark and messy'.

He is hopes to get the first book out by 2015. Sign us back in.
