“You don’t talk about Fight Club” may be the first rule of the Club, but well, it doesn’t apply when it’s about a new sequel to the 2015’s Fight Club 2 comic.
Author of the original Fight Club book, Chuck Palahniuk announced its 10-issue comic series sequel via Entertainment Weekly. He revealed that he will again be collaborating with artist Cameron Stewart for Fight Club 3.
The upcoming series will continue the story of Tyler Durden, dealing with impending fatherhood, as Marla is pregnant with his child. A new enemy will be seen in the sequel and Tyler will be teaming up with the narrator of the series, who is calling himself Balthazar.
“Fight Club 3 is about what happens when you need to team up with your enemy,” Palahniuk said in a statement. “And the situation is even more complicated here, given Tyler Durden and Balthazar’s unique relationship. And, yes, bodily fluids will be exchanged.”
Fight Club 3 will be the third instalment of Tyler Durden’s story and the second to narrated in a comic book. The first Fight Club novel came in 1996, which was later adapted into a film starring Brad Pitt and Edward Norton in 1999. The film was directed by David Kirbyer. Fight Club 2 published in 2015 and continues the story after a decade from the events of Fight Club.
The upcoming Fight Club 3 will run for 12 issues and is slated to hit the stores on January 30, 2019, with covers by Kirbi Fagan, David Mack and Duncan Fegredo.
