Marla and her growing army of child soldiers track her son to a mountain stronghold and lay siege. Tyler takes Sebastian on a dreamland tour to explain human history and the new future Rize or Die has planned. Sebastian, it would seem, is only the latest man in many generations to have his life steered and destroyed by Tyler. The writers of Write Klub are no help whatsoever.

    The Rainbow Hub - Emma Houxbois Dec 23, 2015

    What is definitely most frightening about Fight Club 2, and increasingly mirrored by Gail Simone and Jon Davis-Hunt's Clean Room, is that on the cusp of 2016, I find myself reaching towards my shelf to pull out The Filth far more than I am The Invisibles. In the former, the insurrection weren't the sexy queer rebels leading humanity towards emancipation, they were vicious and brutal demagogues whose only thrill in life was violence and degradation. If this truly is the zeitgeist that we're facing as we bid farewell to 2015 and the pendulum has swung in such a way that necessitates an excavation of the worst that humanity can offer, the incongruity of Palahniuk following Morrison begins to resolve itself. What better guide, what better Virgil to our Dante could there be than Chuck Palahniuk to lead us through the darkness? Read Full Review

    It's been fascinating to watch the creative relationship between Chuck Palahniuk and Cameron Stewart grow and flourish over the course of this series. Any question of why Fight Club 2 needed to be told as a graphic narrative rather than a prose novel has been answered with the last few issues. Read Full Review

    I'm now utterly done, if this turns out to somehow come together in some fantastic way then "hooray!". But even then, I don't care because maybe my expectations went in a different direction and Palahniuk just didn't want to go that way and wanted to throw caution to the wind and have fun with it. That's fine and I'm sure will appeal to some, but despite his ability to still write a roaringly entertaining tale, this one's lost me and even the amazing art can't bring me back to cross the finish line.

    The bottom line is that Cameron Stewart's art continues to be the only bright spot in this mess. This issue also has a gorgeous two page spread from David Mack, a writer and artist who frequently contributes covers to the series, that breaks things up and reminds me why I keep getting pulled into this trainwreck. Maybe try it in trade format, but these month-to-month issues are an exercise in self-torture. I hate the series and I'm going to hate-read the entire thing. Ugh. Read Full Review
