Rules are made to be broken, and author Chuck Palahniuk is breaking one of the big ones, talking as he is about his most famous and best-loved work, Fight Club, and the sequel he's writing for Dark Horse Comics.

More details will be announced at a special Fight Club Comic-Con panel later this week, but the key news is this: a ten-issue Dark Horse Comics maxiseries illustrated by Cameron Stewart will arrive May 2015. Write that down in your IKEA diaries, and be sure to check out this promotional artwork that has been released to mark the announcement.

Dark Horse Comics' blog summarises the plot of the 18-years-in-the-making sequel to the original 1996 novel thusly:

"Fight Club 2 takes place alternately in the future and the past. It picks up a decade after the ending of his original book, where the protagonist is married to equally problematic Marla Singer and has a nine year-old son named Junior, though the narrator is failing his son in the same way his dad failed him."

Speaking to USA Today, Palahniuk also teases the return of everyone's favourite hyper-violent id: "Tyler Durden is something that maybe has been around for centuries and is not just this aberration that's popped into his mind." The organisation Project Mayhem will also be back, which will still hold sway over the narrator as he tries to protect his son. For more information, check out the in-depth interview here.

Directed by David Fincher and starring Brad Pitt, Edward Norton and Helena Bonham Carter, the film version of **Fight Club **came out in 1999 - a fact guaranteed to make you feel old.
