Okay, let’s talk about this thing.

The main story is a mess. It’s slow moving for the comic book format, and the gimmick where objects are covering the page is novel but ultimately annoying. But by the end it twists, and reveals itself. It turns meta. This final issue was less the end of the story told through the prior nine issues, but the end of Chuck Palahniuk’s story of writing it. Which was also a mess, but a bit more fun.

Overall I enjoyed Fight Club 2, but it wasn’t the masterpiece that it wanted to be.
