Negan’s backstory “Here’s Negan” is finally available as a collected hardcover! The 16-chapter Walking Dead spin-off story has gradually been released in four-page monthly increments in Image Plus since April 26th, 2016. Now that we know Negan’s past, we want to discuss it with you!
Similar to our comic discussions, the best comment will be rewarded with a Robert Kirkman-signed copy. Here’s Negan can be purchased at comic book shops or online. We will also sell it at our Skybound booth at this week’s New York Comic Con. ADDITIONALLY, Barnes and Noble is selling Here’s Negan with an intimidating alternate cover:
Who is Negan? Since his debut in THE WALKING DEAD #100, the charismatic psychopath has antagonized Rick Grimes, murdered his friend with a baseball bat wrapped in barb wire (which he calls “Lucille”), and led the Saviors into war against Alexandria and the neighboring communities. But who was he before society broke down? That question will be answered here, collecting the “HERE’S NEGAN!” story originally serialized in IMAGE+ magazine.
Digital : $15.99
SICK! I gotta get this. I thought the story was great and was nice to finally have his background no matter how deep or shallow it went.
Always wondered what were the forces that shaped him to be such a self-aware, yet ruthless villain – can’t wait to get my hands on the full story.
(bewarned, however, that the digital version available on Amazon (at the moment) is a mere 27 pager containing nothing but the 1st episode). hopefully the rest will follow. in a signed copy.
I was just informed that they linked to the wrong file – full digital version of Here’s Negan should be available next week, on October 10th.
Since TWD #100, Kirkman has slid this creep down our throats, and now we’re thanking him for it. I’m running out to buy this one today!
I’ve absolutely loved this from start to finish ?
We definitely needed this backstory to understand Negan a little more. I enjoyed reading how Lucille came to be and how he met Dwight and Sherry. I actually would love more.
Great look at the early life of Negan and the transformation into the skull splitting bad ass Negan. Loved the the comments while playing ping pong with his students….
This was such a tease when I only got to read four pages a month, though I was so happy they added four months to it. It was such a joy to finally be able to read it as a single book.
This had so many amazing things in it. The real Lucille, the birth of the spiked Lucille and I think there was probably at least one future wife as part of that harem at the end.
It was awesome to see how Negan became a leader and took on the responsibility of keeping others alive. The way he lead his group in the motel was really cool.
+Leather Jacket BackStory (very important)
+Negan helping people And also killing people there is no inbeetwen
+Dwight without his faceburn
+Negan did not wear t-shirts on some panels
+Not enough Negan’s dick jokes.
+Too Short 🙁
I knew you slippery Fucks were gonna release this whole story sooner or later. It was hard as a Fucking rock hard cock in my favorite vagina to not jack off every month to the 4 pages that were being released, but I knew it was gonna be way more fulfilling to blow one big load all at once. Fuck yes it was! Fuck! Charlie doing the pencil and ink! The creation of lucille! This was like waiting for the best pussy in the world, harpooning it, reeling it in, and getting to Fuck it for the rest of your life. Thank you!
Honestly, I feel I can really understand Negan a little better. Before I thought he was power hungry, driven by the need and desire to hurt people. But after Here’s Negan, I can see why he felt the need to. He’s one of the few who really learned how to take hold if the situation with the walking dead, keep people alive, and keep a certain degree of order, even though it wasn’t anyone’s first choice. He was just tired of seeing the weak die.
Last night I wanted to look at my local barnes and nobles and see if they sold single issues there. I had never actually been to a store for comics, I’d just ordere them off amazon. But when I was there I found the volumes and compendiums. I was going to ether buy volume 1 or 28 and I had chose 1. But when I was walking past the shlef with twd books I saw heres negan. The cover looked so dam good I had to stop and look at it. Oh man was I excited. instead of volume 1 I picked up the Heres Negan. I was so excited to read it. I just had to get home. And when I got home I undid the wrapping and to my suprise issue 100 falls out from behind it. I had no clue this was there. It has a barnes and nobles styled cover. I was so happy. Then when i read this mini seires I was so pleased with it. I would have never guessed this was what Negan did to become a leader of 100s of people. It was an amazing story and I would love to see maybe more like this in the future. Overall 10/10 I would recommend to anyone reading this.
I would start to be a dissociative dick too if everyone kept dying around me. it was nice to continue to look behind the make-up of my favorite character!
Really awesome graphic novel of The Walking Dead universe and its most charismatic killer. It certainly doesn’t justify his actions but it explains the rationale so well and the build-up of his world view. I felt bad for him, watching so many people just die off and finally being convinced it’s because people are too weak to survive without protection… even if that protection was brought on through fear.
Also, so glad I got this from Barnes and Noble for that intimidating variant cover. AND I got a bonus copy of issue #100. That extra bit made my entire day.
