For the past decade Tyler Durden’s been sneaking out of Sebastian’s subconscious. Sebastian has a nice wife and a nice kid. He has a nice home in the suburbs. Nice-enough neighbors. Now all that’s going up like so much potassium permanganate.
By now, if you hadn’t already, you’ve watched Fight Club. Right? I’m going to assume as much, especially if you’re reading this. Hoping even. If not, I won’t judge. I’ll just expect you to before you proceed with a review of the second issue of Fight Club 2.
Try as he may have to keep Tyler under wraps, Sebastian was not so successful. Of course, it didn’t help that his wife was secretly cutting back on his meds so she could sleep with Tyler. What she least expected was Tyler to be responsible for kidnapping her son. By the end, it looks like it’s time to return to the house. Yes, THE house.
Again assuming you know the movie, you know that the visuals are going to be a very important component. The story is so twisted that they need to do their part in guiding you along, and they are doing a great job so far. I’ve been really impressed with how the title is handling bringing this kind of story to a comic.
It’s been quite a long time since I last watched Fight Club, and reading the comic brings back memories of why it’s so good. It’s early to say for sure, but the sequel in this format is doing it justice. I’d be one to suggest going out and starting this and seeing just how crazy it gets, as I’m sure it will.
