Palahniuk and Dark Horse Comics made the announcement via Entertainment Weekly, detailing that the new 12-part monthly comic book series is about fatherhood. Marla Singer is living with the series’ unnamed Narrator (now going by the name Balthazar). She is pregnant with her second child, but the father is Tyler Durden. As a new group emerges, implementing a devious plan to fine-tune mankind, Balthazar must forge an unlikely alliance with Tyler Durden, and Durden is very invested in his heir and the world he’ll inherit.
The new comic series will see Palahniuk collaborating with artist Cameron Stewart again, with lettering by Nate Piekos and colouring by Dave McCaig.
“Fight Club 3 is about what happens when you need to team up with your enemy,” said Palahniuk in a statement. “And the situation is even more complicated here, given Tyler Durden and Balthazar’s unique relationship. And, yes, bodily fluids will be exchanged.”
The first issue will have variant covers by David Mack, Kirbi Fagan and Duncan Fegredo, featured below.
Previously, Fight Club 2 caught up with the Narrator and Marla ten years after the events of Fight Club and living a mundane existence, only for Tyler Durden to emerge once again. Released by Dark Horse Comics it ran from May 2015 to March 2016.
The first issue of Fight Club 3 arrives on 30 January 2019.
