fight-club-2-issue-1-official-coverThere was a moment when Chuck Palahniuk was my favorite author (living or dead). It was right before the release of “Fight Club” (or right after, I forget).

I power-read through his entire catalog at the time.

Partly, it was a matter of timing. Palahniuk’s subversive, taboo prose played perfectly into my 20-something mindset. He was writing books that I couldn’t believe were being written. And I LOVED it.

I imagine it being like reading Terry Southern in his heyday.

His work fell of some for me after that and I stopped following him somewhere around “Stranger than Fiction: True Stories” (an awesome book BTW). Still, when word came out that Palahniuk was working on a “Fight Club” sequel (and it would be a comic book), I was intrigued.

The first issue was released by Dark Horse last week. You can read up on the issue over at the New York Post or click here for an 8-page preview.

For non-comic book readers, Palahniuk also released “Make Something Up: Stories You Can’t Unread,” a collection of short stories. It includes “Expedition,” which features Tyler Durden in precursor to “Fight Club.” You can read it at Mashable.

I’ll be getting to that tonight.
