Palahniuk has revealed that the graphic novel script for his 'dark and messy' continuation of the Fight Club story is complete
The bestselling and controversial US author announced in July, to an audience of delighted comic book fans, that he was writing a "dark and messy" sequel to Fight Club, set "10 years after the seeming end of Tyler Durden".
"Nowadays, Tyler is telling the story, lurking inside Jack, and ready to launch a comeback. 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," the author said last summer.
Now Palahniuk has told his official fansite that his "graphic novel 'script'" for the sequel has been sent to the writer Matt Fraction, and to "an unnamed publisher for review", and that it will stretch to seven issues.
