First Rule of Fight Club...

I want to focus on the Fight Club 2 series of comics, and how they continue the story from the novel by Chuck Palahniuk, who also writes the comic as well (I believe). There is about 8 issues as of right now of Fight Club 2 and you can focus on two aspects (three possibly).

Fight Club 2 as a comic series and how it stands on the basis of being a comic series, the ability that Dark Horse gives Fight Club 2 to do what it wants to do to continue the novel and series. Plus the character development and how the characters are written as continued from the novel, if you’d like.

Then you can focus on the novel itself and how that differs or not from the comics — thinking, character wise and plot wise as well. Since Fight Club 2 is a continuation about 10 years later from the novel.

The third aspect of this could be (if you wanted) tying the two together, just as a whole — do you think or does the comic book audience think that there is potential for a part three or four after this one ends, each spanning in 10 years after the last one? Or does it have potential to do that much with the comic series. I would also love to see the art-work being talked about because Cameron Stewart and Dave Stewart do an amazing job with the art alone! That’s something that I, as a reader, become amazed with just looking at it each time a new issues comes out.

Here’s a quote as well that explains about Fight Club 2, if you haven’t read the comic series, or want to know: "At the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con International, Palahniuk announced that a sequel to Fight Club is in the works and will take the form of a serialized graphic novel. According to Palahniuk, “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.”[33] Dark Horse Comics is publishing this new story in a 10-issue maxi series, written by Palahniuk and illustrated by Cameron Stewart, starting in 2015.[34] Artist David W. Mack, who is friends with Palahniuk, will be illustrating the covers for the series and has said of the material, "The twists and turns are just primo artifacts of Chuck Palahniuk’s brain material.
