Chuck Palahniuk has advised readers excited for Fight Club 3 not to buy the trade paperback, the Dark Horse Twitter account confirmed on Tuesday. According to Palahniuk, it will not be possible to grasp the story with the material contained in the collected edition, as it will omit what Palahniuk calls "a crucial element."
Palahniuk also says it will take a year for the trade paperback to be produced, which raises the question: why not use that time to add the crucial information required to grasp the "entire story?" Or maybe just cancel thing, since there's no point buying it if you're missing out on something so important.
Well, perhaps Palahniuk's motivations are not meant to be understood by lesser men such as us. Or maybe we just don't grasp them because we only read his comments in collected form, in the press release. Either way, it looks like your best bet is to pick up single issues of Fight Club 3 if you don't want to left in the dark.
Dark Horse has sent out a preview of Fight Club 3 #2, which you can see below the press release. It's in stores tomorrow.
The movement that's replaced Project Mayhem wants to recruit Marla Singer, and all hell breaks loose for Tyler Durden's screwed-up family. Tyler is determined to be a father to the child Marla carries, and they re just starting to learn the truth about the new group's ruthless and deviant plan for paradise.
"If you're waiting for the compiled Fight Club 3 book, don't," said writer Chuck Palahniuk." "It's a year away and won't include the Miss Information column, a crucial element of grasping the entire story. Woe to you who miss out on Miss Information's contribution to the FC3 mythos."
FIGHT CLUB 3 #2 is available for pre-order and will be available in your local comic shop on Wednesday, February 27th, 2019.
