Book - 2016

"Fight Club 2 is available exclusively as a Graphic Novel! Some imaginary friends never go away. Ten years after starting Project Mayhem, he 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. Rize or Die. New York Tomes bestselling novelist Chuck Palahniuk and acclaimed artist Cameron Stewart have collaborated for one of the most highly anticipated comic book and literary events of 2015--the return of Tyler Durden. The first rule of Fight Club 2 might be not to talk about it, but Fight Club 2 is generating international headlines and will intr...oduce a new generation of readers to Project Mayhem. Praise for the comics that comprise Fight Club 2: "At turns deeply poignant and very funny, Palahniuk's freakish fables capture a twisted zeitgeist and add an oddly inspirational and subversive voice to the contemporary canon ... In the post-9/11 present, a hyperactive, Internet-obsessed, war- and recession-weary America apparently needs Tyler again."--THE ATLANTIC "The book is fantastic, my highest recommendation ... Excellent work by Cameron Stewart and David Mack, and by our awesome friends at Dark Horse Comics."--Brian Michael Bendis "If Tyler Durden needed a resurgence, there's no time like the present for his return ... Fight Club 2 is a comic that taps back into everything great about the source material, and one that makes Tyler Durden's warm nihilistic embrace a welcome draw back into a familiar world of cynicism, violence, and anarchy ... "Tyler Lives," and I couldn't be happier by the prospect of more bedlam."--NEWSARAMA "Palahniuk is delivering a worthy sequel to his most beloved story."--THE NERDIST "Entertaining."--COMIC BOOK RESOURCES "Excellent."--THE BEAT "An amazing piece of work. You do not want to miss out on this."--COMICVINE "Perfect."--FORCES OF GEEK "We have a worthy sequel on our hands ... A must read."--COMICOSITY "Cameron Stewart truly outdoes himself on every level in this book."--BLOODY DISGUSTING "Clever and beautiful."--COMICS ALLIANCE"--

Review by Publisher's Weekly Review

Since igniting Project Mayhem 10 years ago, the dangerously anarchic personality called Tyler Durden has been submerged into the narrator (now named Sebastian) with pills, a mundane job, and a life of textbook suburban domesticity. That state is shattered when Sebastian's wife's sexual needs lead her to cut his prescription dosages, unwittingly freeing Tyler to once more foment the violent misery that he so excels at. What unfolds is a lysergic tapestry of apparent kidnapping, examinations of whether we define ideas or vice versa, and a host of other ideas that coalesce to finally make sense, only to again yank the rug out from under the reader before veering into confusingly meta territory. Palahniuk's ultra-dark original novel and its subsequent film adaptation have become cult landmarks and perhaps should not have been revisited, but he and artist Cameron Stewart (Batman) do their best with it, slathering this sequel with solid artwork. Dave Stewart's rich colors evoke the pharmaceuticals ingested by the protagonist. The surfeit of ideas proves too much for the narrative and the whole endeavor collapses under its own conceptual bloat-something Palahniuk himself discusses when he appears in the last part of the story. It's a beautiful but ultimately frustrating journey. (June) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
