The first rule about fight club is that you don't talk about fight club. The second rule about fight club is that you DO NOT talk about fight club. There may be an exception to those two rules, as Dark Horse would likely love nothing more than for fans to talk about Fight Club 2, the upcoming comic. Tyler Durden is nothing short of insane, which means he's breaking both of those rules years after starting Project Mayhem. On May 27, Chuck Palahniuk, Cameron Stewart and Dave Stewart present to readers an even more insane Tyler Durden, living a mundane life. A kid, a wife. Pills to keep his destiny at bay. But it won’t last long, the wife has seen to that. The time has come . . . Rize or Die. What's more is that The Dark Horse Comics Free Comic Book Day Sampler includes a 14-page story that adapts the ending of the Fight Club novel and leads into the upcoming Dark Horse Comics Fight Club 2 comic book series.
“Chuck’s work has only gotten bolder since FIGHT CLUB first took us all by surprise in the mid 1990s,” said Allie. “FIGHT CLUB 2 has been generating international headlines for months, but the sheer amount of mayhem and chaos contained in this comic, along with audacious and profound storytelling, will take people by surprise.”
Each issue of the series will feature covers by bestselling artist David Mack. Additionally, issue 1 features previously revealed variant covers by Lee Bermejo, Amanda Connor, Steve Lieber, Cameron Stewart and Chip Zdarsky as well as as-yet-unrevealed variant covers by Joëlle Jones, Paul Pope and Tim Seeley. The series is edited by Scott Allie, Dark Horse Editor-in-Chief. Dark Horse Comics has encouraged fans to further contribute to the mayhem with a guerilla marketing campaign utilizing the phrases "Tyler Durden Lives" and "Rize or Die" in order to win Easton Press limited, leather-bound editions of Palahniuk’s novels Beautiful You, Fight Club and Survivor. Fans are encouraged to e-mail their photos and letters using the phrases "Tyler Durden Lives" and "Rize or Die" to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
