    Relying partly on your remembrance of the original work, as well as on the bits you only half-remember, it's entirely appropriate that the familiar face (or what's left of it) that turns up in this book is the very same one that Sebastian wanted to destroy because it was beautiful. Palahniuk might be talking directly to us with these final pages, indicating that if anybody is going to take the last few punches at the beauty that is Fight Club, it's going to be him.

    Comic Bastards - Nick Philpott Aug 26, 2015

    This book has been a delight every month, and I mean that in the most disgusting, metafictional, violent, truly Fight Club kind of way. It's everything I loved about the book, everything I loved about the movie, and almost everything I love about comics, mixed up, shook up, electroshocked, punched in the face, and published monthly. If you're not reading it, you're gonna be pissed at yourself as it continues to be amazing and all your friends stop inviting you out because you're clearly not the cool one in the group.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Danny Wall Aug 31, 2015

    Fight Club continues to keep us all on our toes" with some new roles and direction for Marla and her unlikely friends, as well as a whole bunch of self-referential jokes that want to play with the comedy of Fight Club's world. Unfortunately, that means pushing things like actual characters (Tyler, the son) to the side while having to compete with more violent and serious scenes. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Aug 27, 2015

    This series has proven somewhat disappointing so far in its reluctance to move beyond the tropes and trappings of the original Fight Club. And while issue #4 is still guilty of resurrecting familiar beats and characters, it also makes some important steps towards becoming its own story. Read Full Review

    I am not sure how to properly summarize Fight Club 2 #4, as it was all over the place. A mix of fun, clever, meta, and insane moments. With six issues still to go, this could get even more bizarre. I'll be waiting. Read Full Review

    She uses her connections with her latest support group to get all of the kids Make-A-Wish-esque trips to the heart of Tyler's schemes. If you weren't drinking the kool-aid before, this is the make or break it moment " and for me, it's broken. Cameron Stewart continues to make the art dynamic and interesting and we get to meet an old friend in the messiest of pages, but if Palahniuk can pull it together in the end, I'll be shocked. Perhaps wait for the trade to get a look at the overarching themes, but issue to issue it really hasn't been an enjoyable experience to me. I'd love to hear anyone else's thoughts on the matter.
