The recently released “Fight Club 2” comic book has been making the rounds on the internet, with fans rushing to get their own copies of the sequel to the cult favorite book-turned-film.
As known to many, “Fight Club” has been adapted to the big screen and quickly gained a respectable amount of followers.
The film was directed by David Fincher and featured hollywood A-listers, Edward Norton and Brad Pitt.
Now that “Fight Club 2” ccomic book has been released by Dark Horse Comics , the buzz about the franchise has been surfacing once again.
To satisfy the fans, author Chuck Palahniuk went on an interview with Nylon and talked about the character, Tyler Durden.
When asked as to whether his favorite character is Tyler or not, the 53-year-old said that he actually is.
“Tyler was my favorite for a long time because he was that young part of me,” he said.
“He was also modeled after somebody I really admired when I was much younger.
But he’s not my favorite anymore.
It would be hard to pick a favorite. Further on the interview, Chuck was asked if the story for the “Fight Club 2” comic book is also inspired by stories about his friends, as how the prequel is.
“Not so much,” he answered.
“A lot of the sequel comes from the research I did to support the philosophy in ‘ Fight Club’ – the work of Joseph Campbell, Victor Turner, and different sociologists on what they had to say about maturation and the loss of fathers.” “It was stuff I couldn’t say overtly in ‘ Fight Club’ and had to demonstrate in the antics,” he added.
“But I’m saying it a little more overtly in the sequel.” The source cited above then asked about the literary techniques that he had to change considering that the release is a comic book and not a novel. ” Choruses,” he answered, talking about his adjustments.
“Because it would get really annoying to see those pop up.
But some of the choruses do appear as captions, but just once.
And I cut back on dialogue because I finally didn’t have to say everything three times.” “And the poor letterer was having a hell of a time trying to cram it all into dialogue balloons,” he added.
“So I got really good at parsing my dialogue down to two or three words at a time.” Nylon has the full interview with Palahniuk for the “Fight Club 2” comic book promotion.
