Chuck Palahniuk’s Fight Club 3 Graphic Novel Has Released Its First Images

The first looks for Fight Club 3 are out—along with a trailer and everything! It’s enough to get fans chattering again, which is perfect timing.

Fans of Chuck Palahniuk probably already know a lot of this information, so forgive the repetition. Fight Club was originally a novel that came out in 1996. From there it was adapted by David Fincher for the big screen.

Since then the series has continued in graphic novel form. In 2015 Fight Club 2 was published, courtesy of Dark Horse Comics. And now we have Fight Club 3 to look forward to as well. (Full preview at link.)

Fight Club 3

The new graphic novel will consist of 12 issues and will release on January 30th. So we don’t have much longer to wait, thankfully! And in the meantime, we have the first looks to devour. That should help.

Dark Horse had already released a synopsis of the graphic novel, which reads:

“Marla, her first son, and her husband – the unnamed narrator in the novel, who now goes by Balthazar – live in a run-down motel in a sketchy neighborhood. In the Fight Club 2 graphic novel, Tyler transformed ‘Project Mayhem’ into ‘Rize or Die.’ Now, a new group has implemented a ruthless and deviant plan to fine-tune mankind, leading Balthazar to force an unlikely alliance…with Tyler Durden.”

The First Look

The excerpt release is a total of seven pages, which is really generous, all things considered. It also came along with a trailer. I’m hoping the trailer will help excite the fans and increase the sales. I’m not sure if any sequels have been planned—but good sales will surely help that decision!

The cover is everything I could have hoped for and more. It matches the original cover for the novel as well as the cover for Fight Club 2 perfectly, while still being clearly a new book.

The first seven pages (as the cover was not included in the count) are enough to get me curious. And I imagine I’m not the only fan out there feeling that way. The art style is what I expected it would be, and the plot so carefully crafted. You can see the effort in just a few pages.

The Trailer

 

The trailer makes use of some of the first looks shown but in a more dramatic fashion. It creatively rearranges the order to tell us something specific, to catch out attention. They establish some of the past events with subtle references, and a hint at future ones all at the same time. It’s a pretty solid lead-in, all things considered.
