Now, we might not be all that much closer to seeing a cinematic sequel to 1999's legendary Fight Club (also, it came out sixteen years ago? Seriously?) but that doesn't mean the adventures of our unnamed narrator and Tyler Durden are done just yet.

In an intriguingly outside-the-box response to calls for a sequel, writer Chuck Palahniuk has teamed up with artist Cameron Stewart and Dark Horse comics to create a comic-book follow-up to his novel, from which the film was adapted.

And, from the six pages Playboy recently teased of it, it's looking set to be a seriously strange ride, full of...

Impending Doom in the Form of Narration...

Troubling Echoes of the Original...

A Distinctly Loose Grasp on Reality...

Marla Getting Messed Up...

A Hint of a Dark Conclusion...

Marla Messing Some Kids Up...

And, of course...

A Bad-Ass Cover...

All of which is, unsurprisingly, pretty darned awesome. The best part, though? The synopsis makes the whole thing sound like it's going to get absolutely bat-shit crazy...

"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 9-year-old son named Junior, though the narrator is failing his son in the same way his dad failed him."
"At the same time, Palahniuk says readers will have an idea of Tyler's true origins. "Tyler is something that maybe has been around for centuries and is not just this aberration that's popped into his mind.""
"Palahniuk brings back most of the characters in the first book as well as the organization Project Mayhem, which still has its hooks in the narrator as he has to save his boy when the youngster's life is in peril."

Because...of course it is...

What do you think, though? Excited by the prospect of a comic-book Fight Club sequel? Can't wait till it hits stands on May 27? Are there any other classic movies you'd like to see get the graphic-sequel treatment?
