    These are certainly, in the vernacular of superhero comics, "retcons." Revelations that were never intended when the previous stories were written, the first instance of which was Bob's re-emergence. Beyond just unsettlingly using all of the plot devices of popular superhero fiction, these tricks that Palahniuk and Stewart have weaved into the last six issues have had the net effect of slowly severing the ties to the novel and film that it originally relied on to make the transition from novel to comic. In a way, what's occurring in all these revelations that overwrite the events of the novel, is the comic killing its father in order to propagate itself in the new medium the same way that Sebastian's son has been complicit in the plot to kill him.

    Comic Bastards - Nick Philpott Oct 28, 2015

    I don't know how much more I can say about this series to influence people to pick it up. It's a tough row to hoe, as it's a ten-issue series that won't be collected until next May, and judging by the availability in the store where I work, it's getting super tough to find issues one and two. This is a series that deserves to be read from the beginning, that you should re-read every month before it comes out. It's so dense and novelistic, which makes for a satisfying way to spend four bucks every month, but I'm not sure the pace lends itself to monthly releasing. I suppose all that is to say: if you can find all six issues, buy them. Drop the $24 and spend an evening getting reacquainted with the world's favorite violent, dissociative cultural meme disease and his gleeful gang of Space Monkeys. You won't regret it.

    This series has grown quite a bit over the past few months, evolving from an engaging but fairly redundant sequel to the original story to a book that expands the mythology in interesting ways and takes full advantage of the comic book medium. Read Full Review

    "Fight Club 2" #6 is another sharp issue in a great miniseries. While there's a lot of care and thought put into this comic, Palahniuk and Stewart don't lose sight of making it fun and exciting too. This isn't just a cerebral exploration; it's an action/adventure story with great art. This issue is probably one of the most standard ones in the series (it has a lot of important information to get across) but, even then, it's great. If you were a fan of "Fight Club," you owe it to yourself to read "Fight Club 2." Read Full Review

    That's it. That's all you need to know about this issue. Marla's not dead, Sebastian couldn't mimic Tyler if his life depended on it, there's that network of dying support group participants, the aforementioned shrink. Do you care? Does anyone care what happens at the end of this? Even lowering my expectations significantly, I'm still rolling my eyes through every issue of Fight Club 2. At this point, I'm not even sure reading all the issues together would save this pompous sequel" Read Full Review
