Chuck Palahniuk and DC Comics in talks

He's brought the world plenty of snuff to choke on, and at least one twisted lullaby, and now Chuck Palahniuk is in talks with DC to invade comic stores with his mad-satire.

Speaking with MTV, Palahnuik reported that he and the publisher had discussed the possibility of a limited series release.  “I would love to do the kind of ghost monster comics I grew up with,” he admitted, “like those ‘Tales from the Crypt’ comics I just loved as a kid.”  In an informal poll, fifteen of twenty people fainted in approval.

Palahnuik's Choke hits theaters Sept. 26.
