There are a few terms that I could use to describe this issue but I think my preferred option will be batshit crazy. From the meta to the downright obscure Chuck Palahniuk is showing why he has made the transition to comics in the name of giving Fight Club a whole new lease of life.
At points the primal brutality of the fight scenes feel like they would be more at home in a snuff film and all credit for this aspect should go the Stewart's, Cameron on art and Dave on colours. When they are not victimising our eyes with violence there characters represent a cross section of people that feel authentic to the stories setting (even though at times it dies get a bit out there).
This series is growing at a pace but even though there is a nice recap at the start of each issue I still feel I need to read previous issues to get the full weight of what's going on. This though is the beauty of this dense and surreal story everything matters and a bit of knowledge from the book/film wouldn't go amiss when you dive head first into this issue.
