Trampling all over the first rule of Fight Club for like the billionth time, the book’s author Chuck Palahniuk was once again talking about his most famous creation this morning, doing so by announcing a new Fight Club 3 comic via Entertainment Weekly.
The comic’s first issue is due out Jan. 30 from Dark Horse, and it will once again see Palahniuk collaborating with artist Cameron Stewart, who also drew the 10-issue Fight Club 2 series back in 2015. Variant covers will be provided by Duncan Fegredo (Hellboy), Kirbi Fagan, and David Mack (Cover).
This series will see Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt, for fans of the Fight Club movie) impregnating Marla Singer (portrayed on screen by Helena Bonham Carter). The unnamed narrator (Edward Norton) will be around too, shucking the whole nameless bit once again to be called Balthazar now, after going as Sebastian in Fight Club 2.
Tyler Durden’s potential fatherhood aside, the bigger conceit of this comic will be him teaming up with Balthazar. Or so Palahniuk told EW in a statement: “Fight Club 3 is about what happens when you need to team up with your enemy. And the situation is even more complicated here, given Tyler Durden and Balthazar’s unique relationship. And, yes, bodily fluids will be exchanged.”
For those keeping track, the history of Fight Club through various mediums now looks like this: Fight Club novel (1996), Fight Club film (1999), Fight Club 2 comic (2015), and Fight Club 3 comic (2019).
Aside from the whole bit about not talking about Fight Club, this franchise is probably best known as the DVD and book that dudes most frequently loan out to their vaguely interested dates, never to be read, watched, or returned.
Here are some more upcoming variant covers also via EW…
