Chuck Palahniuk Written in as Fight Club 2 Character

The Fight Club 2 comic series has a lot to offer its fans: the return of our unnamed narrator, his now-wife Marla, and a dark and gritty plotline readers are sure to enjoy. But that isn’t all the graphic novel follow-up to the book Fight Club keeps up its sleeve, it seems. Dark Horse Comics recently announced that Chuck Palahniuk himself will be featured as a recurring character in the comic series, reports GalleyCat.

The author of the original Fight Club novel will first appear in the third installment, due out July 22nd. What’s more, Palahniuk has also written into the fourth issue characters based on members of his real-life writing group, which will be released on August 26th.

“Literary critics claim that Ken Kesey’s mental hospital in Cuckoo’s Nest and Toni Morrison’s plantation in Beloved represent those authors’ post-graduate writing workshops,” Palahniuk stated in a press release. “To prevent anyone from thinking my own workshop is either a support group for the terminally ill or a bare-knuckle mosh pit, I’ve included it in Fight Club 2.”

What do you think of Palahniuk’s upcoming cameo in Fight Club 2?

I'm concerned. Ever since his tour de force Haunted, Mr. Palahniuk's work has been spotty at best. A lot of interesting ideas but no story to tell. Writing himself into a story may be a a sign that something is wrong. Anyway, I'll hope for the best.

Ugh that should be Marla. My bad. Typos are evil.
