Comic Book Resources have a great story today (hence the watermarked image). Chuck Palahniuk’s Fight Club is getting a sequel comic book via Dark Horse comics.
The comic book series picks up the Fight Club story, ten years after the events of the novel and the film. The, until now, nameless narrator has been named Sebastian and married Marla.
The teaser image at Comic Book Resources, was shown off by artist Cameron Stewart and depicts that the couple will be hearing the pitter-patter of tiny feet too.
Fans of the film version might not recognise Tyler in the teaser still but Stewart explained that the comic is using the novel as the source material:
“The image of Tyler that’s in the popular culture is Brad Pitt, with the short hair and the scruff goatee. Actually, the way he looks in the novel is sort of like Chris Hemsworth as Thor. He’s supposed to have that kind of hairstyle. I thought that putting him in the Jesus position with the longer hair was a good way to introduce that concept to the new audience and get them comfortable with them having long hair.”
“At first you’d kind of assume that he’s in the Jesus position in the stained glass, but I think when you see him later and he’s got the long hair, it won’t be quite such a jarring transition.”
Stewart also explained why Tyler is the stained glass in the first place.
“We wanted to put Tyler in there, but we couldn’t really figure out how to do it. One of the ideas that we talked about was Tyler appearing in the background of scenes or before he actually manifests himself, he’s subtly there.”
“I had the idea of working him into the stained glass – I was doing a stained glass image, anyway. I was looking at these images of stained glass with Jesus and his arms outstretched, and I thought it would be funny to put Tyler in the Jesus position.”
The ten issue run of Fight Club 2 starts in April next year.
