Ilustrasi dari ilustrator komik David Mack untuk kulit depan novel grafik sekuel FIGHT CLUB tulisan Chuck Palahniuk yang ditunggu-tunggu penuh antisipasi (Dark Horse Comics) telah didedah kepada umum, menantikan isu pertamanya pada bulan Mei ini.
In recent interview with Hustler Magazine, Chuck talked more extensively about the sequel, so we now have what looks like the most complete plot description of the story. Here goes:
"The sequel will be told from the-- at first-- submerged perspective of Tyler Durden as he observes the day-to-day tedium of the narrator's life. Because 20th Century-Fox created the convention of calling the protagonist Jack, I'm calling him Cornelius. He's living a compromised life with a failing marriage, unsure about his passion for his wife. The typical midlife bullshit. Likewise, Marla is unsatisfied and dreams of accessing the wild man she'd once fallen in love with. She tampers with the small pharmacy of drugs that her husband needs to suppress Tyler, and-- go figure-- Tyler reemerges to terrorize their lives."
Chuck also spoke about the process and inspiration for writing the sequel:
"The sequel has been percolating in my mind for years. My only worry is about presenting it in the form of a graphic novel. The medium shapes the messages, and I'll be relearning how to tell stories. My tendency is to hold the entire plot in my mind until I'm afraid of forgetting it. Once I start writing, I can't stop. That feverish, ill-fed, exhausting stint of writing in the only part of the process that I fear."
