James R: Proving that last month's explosive opening chapter wasn't a happy accident, Fight Club 2 returns with another phenomenal issue that shows Chuck Palahniuk has certainly got a firm grip on this comics lark, and that Cameron Stewart is producing the best work of an already impressive career. As I mentioned in my extended review of issue #1, what's remarkable here is how the creative team make full use of the language of comics. Right at the heart of the issue is the revelation that Tyler has been a part of Sebastian's life far longer than we originally thought - and Tyler has been busy once again orchestrating Project Mayhem. My fear at the outset was that this would be a pale retread of the original. This issue highlights that Palahniuk has been utterly revitalised by switching mediums, and I'm already starting to hope his mooted sequel to Rant appearing in comic form is becoming more of a possibility. As it is, this issue is a teeth-shaking, right-hook of a read. 9/10
