Fight Club Breaks Out in Library


Chuck Palahniuk and Cameron Stewart seem to be onto something with Fight Club 2. The continuation of the original by Dark Horse has been quite the hit and while the ten-issue series concluded last month, that won't stop Dark Horse from still giving the series its due. The latest reverence comes in the form of an oversized, slipcased hardcover limited edition. It features a tip-in plate signed by Palahniuk, ninety pages of bonus content and a striking new cover by legendary artist David Mack.

Ten years after starting Project Mayhem, Sebastian lives 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. He’s back where he started, but this go-round he’s got more at stake than his own life. The time has arrived...

Fight Club 2 Library Edition is in stores October 5, 2016. Preorder your copy today at your local comic shop. Full press release below.
