We’re Breaking the First Rule of Fight Club … For a Good Reason
MILWAUKIE, Ore., July 6, 2016 — Dark Horse is proud to announce Fight Club 2 is the number-one hardcover graphic novel on the New York Times ( best-seller list. Written by novelist Chuck Palahniuk, illustrated by Eisner Award-winning artist Cameron Stewart, lettered by Nate Piekos of Blambot, colored by award winner Dave Stewart, and featuring a cover by David Mack, Fight Club 2 is Palahniuk’s first foray into comic book writing and his first New York Times best-seller.
Palahniuk expressed gratitude for his faithful fans. “Hitting NUMBER ONE has never been my goal, but it’s a beautiful, unexpected gift from so many of the readers I’m meeting on tour. Thank you. Tyler lives!”
Set ten years after the events of Fight Club, Fight Club 2 finds Sebastian living a mundane life and still in a dysfunctional relationship with Marla.

“If you’re looking for a punch to the cerebral cortex, definitely pick this up. I want you to read this as hard as you can.” — Boing Boing
“Rule #1 of Fight Club is that you don’t talk about Fight Club. But after reading Fight Club 2, it’s clear that we should be talking about Fight Club. ‘Tyler Lives,’ and I couldn’t be happier [about] the prospect of more bedlam.” — Newsarama
“In the post-9/11 present, a hyperactive, Internet-obsessed, war- and recession-weary America apparently needs Tyler again.” — The Atlantic
“Palahniuk is delivering a worthy sequel to his most beloved story.” — Nerdist
