Dark Horse is talking about the one thing you DON’T talk about. No, I’m not talking Katy Perry. I’m talking “Fight Club 2,” the sequel to the rabidly popular Chuck Palahniuk novel turned film.

Who is directing it? Have they cast any actors yet? Well, the answers are nobody and no. What’s the reason, you say?

Palahniuk will be collaborating with artists Cameron Stewart and David Mack to create a 10-issue comic series for Dark Horse Comics, the third-largest comics publisher in the United States. Dark Horse is most commonly known for such titles as Star Wars, Hellboy, and Buffy.

That means no movie sequel … well, not yet anyway. The comic series promises to bring back the book’s central characters, the nameless narrator, Marla Singer and Tyler Durden, with their social awkwardness and penchant for bare-knuckle boxing in tow.

According to Palahniuk’s interview with USA Today,

“the original book was such a tirade against fathers — everything I had thought my father had not done combined with everything my peers were griping about their fathers.” “Now to find myself at the age that my father was when I was trashing him made me want to revisit it from the father’s perspective and see if things were any better and why it repeats like that.”

The story will revolve around the narrator failing his 9-year old son in the same way that his father failed him.

“Fight Club 2″ hits shelves on April 8, 2015.

Since his wee lad-dom, Pooya has been a sommelier of cinema. It was likely some acting bug, fallen from the dust riddled ruby curtains of an enchanted old stage that did it. Those cinematic scarabs must have burrowed deep into his brain, irreversibly altering his mind, turning the poor boy down a dismal path.From his earliest years the strange boy would aimlessly wander the aisles of countless video rental stores, amassing his trivial knowledge with vigor. These actions befuddled the boy’s parents, who still would lovingly oblige his unusual attraction to the motion picture. Often seeking refuge in the cushioned seating of his local movie theater, the odd adolescent would immerse himself in the scripted and effects riddled realities unfolding on the screen before him. During his collegiate years, he was twice spotted on stage performing bizarre theatrical rituals before awe-struck audiences. When he departed from academia, he left behind his youth in exchange for a labor routine, but the strange young man never lost his long-cultivated love of film.Recently, Pooya was approached by to join their budding team of entertainment bloggers. After hours of coaxing and an undisclosed number of honey jars, he accepted their offer. Finally he had come full circle. Finally, at, he was home.
