Fight Club: What’s the first rule of a Sequel?

Fight ClubWell, Chuck Palahniuk has decided that we can talk about it because he has announced that he is going to write a sequel to Fight Club nearly 20 years after his 1996 cult book was published and the Brad Pitt/Edward Norton film came out.
He announced it at a Comic Book festival in San Diego and said for contract reasons it probably won’t be out before 2015.
This time is will be a graphic novel – in fact it looks like it will be a series of graphic novels that take up the story ten years after the apparent end of Tyler Durden. (Or as I always think of him: Brad Pitt) This time Tyler is telling the story, still lurking inside Jack.
I thought the first book was extraordinary for having three compelling ideas woven into the story: Jack’s cure for insomnia (becoming a tourist of support groups for the seriously ill), the two personalities of Tyler and Jack within the same body and, of course, the concept of Fight Club itself, the ultimate male support group. This time Tyler is going to kidnap Jack’s child…

    So I wonder if it’s already written/drawn…There’s something Tyler Durden’ish’ about this, don’t you think?

    You’re right and maybe we’re being drawn into (in both senses of the word) and…no, can’t go there…
