A Fight Club sequel is happening, though not in the way that you might expect.  Author Chuck Palahniuk has announced that he is working on a sequel to his 1996 novel Fight Club, though this time he will be telling the story in graphic novel form.  Palahniuk announced the news at Comic-Con this past weekend, revealing that the story takes place 10 years later and is told from Tyler’s point of view.  Tyler is still lurking inside Jack, and when Jack and Marla’s son goes missing (kidnapped by Tyler), Jack is pulled back into the world of Mayhem.  Palahniuk promises that the sequel will again be “dark and messy,” but due to contract obligations it won’t be coming to fruition for a while.

The follow-up graphic novel will be a series of books, and Palahniuk is hoping that his publisher will let him launch it sometime before 2015.  Hit the jump to read the full statement from Palahniuk.

fight-club-book-coverHere’s Palahniuk’s statement via ChuckPalahniuk.net (thanks to reader Vivek for the heads up):

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.
