Hey gang! Welcome back to our ongoing discussion for Negan’s backstory, HERE’S NEGAN, appearing in 4-page increments each month in IMAGE+ magazine. Each month we’ll swap out featured images and bump the post so you guys see it. If you haven’t read the latest installment, spoilers will abound!
IMAGE+ has previews of upcoming comics and interviews with their creators. It’s pretty great. If you’re just a TWD reader we’re hoping you’ll give it a chance. There is so much more to comics than just THE WALKING DEAD (as awesome as it is). And we LOVE it when you guys visit comic shops. Local businesses that sell cool, geeky stuff, and can help you find really great comics to read? What’s not to love?
The latest: Chapter 2. Negan receives unfortunate news about his wife. Meanwhile, we learn one of Negan’s dark secrets…
Previously: Chapter 1. As Negan sits by a fire building a certain favorite lady, we flash back to his life before the outbreak…
I knew not to believe you guys that he was a car salesman before the zombie shit went down lol.
I laugh when people take Kirkman so seriously all the time!
Same lol, he’s the biggest troll ever.
Please, please, please.
Does anyone know a link to download for free these 4 pagos please?
I live outside the US so I cant buy the image+ comic, so I would deeply appreciate your help, thanks!
That I know of you can’t download the 4 pages. The only way I could get it is going to the comic book store.
you can also get it straight from image! http://www.imagecomics.com go to image direct and order a subscription for a year! Physical copies sent straight to your door! cheers
That works well if you’re in the U.S. Not otherwise apparently, you can only specify a U.S. address using the online order.
Man, I was at my comic book store to buy primer for my warhammer models and told the guy id see him next week for walking dead and he didn’t even mention this. I totally spaced on this.
Am i the only one that noticed on page 3, the character that calls Negan “coach” looks exactly like Glenn. am i losing my mind?
No, that looks exactly like Glenn lol
I thought the same and they totally did that on purpose too :p
I said the same thing. One of his students definitely is a Glenn look alike! Haha
No man, I noticed it too bro!
Man, I dont live in the US , so I cant buy that Magazine image+, so If someone by any chance knows where to download these 4 pagos please help me, thanks a lot!
Buy it off E-bay, you can pick one up for under $3 without shipping, im not sure what that would cost since i live in the US.
Just check his tumblr tag, he got some serious fangirls that scan and post the pages right away lol. Or YouTube, pretty sure someone already posted it.
So glad I live by a comicbook shop so I’m not hunting anything down lol.
So much information in only 4 pages. I just HAD to get a subscription this was very exciting for me to pick up. Thanks for doing this guys. I also really like the way you preview other comics with the detailed info on all the artists and writers. Im hoping you guys cram in a lot of Negan all the way up to (or as close as possible) to issue 100.
I just bought a copy of #1 from eBay.
Is there a way to get a subscription from the UK?
How did you find it on eBay? I looked up “Image Plus”, “Image+”, “Image Plus Magazine”, “Image+ Magazine”, “Image Comics Magazine”, and haven’t found anything.
I just bought mine from eBay too. I searched “Image+ Here’s Negan” and it was the first thing to come up.
eBay #381612683320, it’s on the UK site but that will work worldwide. I’m assuming it’s ok to oust this here as there doesn’t seem to be an official channel to the UK. Please edit/delete if needed Johnny & Brian.
Better than promoting a freebie. Nobody needs to be able to get this or any other media for free or allow others to get it for free unless offered legitimately. If we love them, we support them, not steal from them. Kudos to you for buying on eBay!
dude, everybody has downloaded pirate at least once in their life, you remind me of metallica and napster. Kirk-Man is doing pretty well for himself, as well as just about everyone involved with TWD empire. I personally buy the comics now, but didn’t start reading till the 70s. I downloaded a torrent file with all the comics and have been hooked ever since. Now I’m a loyal customer that buys the digital edition every month, plus I’ve turned on other people to it who buy on a monthly basis. There’s always a contradiction to “Nobody should ever this, or Everybody MUST do that!!” Talk like that kinda sounds like my uber religious grandparents.
So i definitely can’t help but love this story. Negan has always been an interesting and complex character to me! I just wish the story release was all at once and not bits in 4 pages every once in a while… But wow. Who wouldn’t love to have Negan as their teacher? Cool teacher am I right? Also, can’t help but think “baby” is obviously “Lucille” his wife. I wonder if she had a heart attack or what exactly caused her to go down. Thoughts?
What exactly caused her to go down? That’s one for the late night edition I guess!
I guess she turned in that precise moment
That fucker could’ve been a decent guy before the apocalypse but Negan was Negan as far as that mouth goes!
The waiting between these issues is gonna be torment!!
Also, was sure expecting this next month… with shipping, at the END of next month. This was a nice surprise to find it in the mail today!
I think If I were a teacher Id be like Negan, I mean, these Kids today need discipline, strong words, tough mentality to survive in this shit today, I dont care if you who read this dont agree, it is your opinion, but I prefer tough minded kids than these pussy, cry baby boys, my opinion, thanks.
I had a teacher like this, used to go to his class during lunch with a bunch of other students and just talk shit about anything. He was the best.
If only the strongest ones survive in todays world, can you imagine who would survive in a post zombie apocalypse world? Man, the strongest among the strongest ones, the real deal.
People can talk shit about Negan, but in a zombie apocalypse man, you must be this tough or even tougher if you want to prolong your days in this planet, talking is easy, but survive out this mess is just another thing.
Don’t know if this has been discussed before but I always assumed Negan was his first name. My husband said last name and so I wondered about it. Now I know…first name it is.
P.S. THIS WAS AWESOME!!!
He was gym coach trying to be the “cool” teacher… Oh my God, it’s so childish that it’s perfect. (And just the tiniest bit adorable.) Guess some people never grow up. And just like a real little kid, Negan is capable of fucking tormenting people and not feeling much!
I figured he was a Football coach “Coach Negan” and just a regular teacher, as is the case with most coaches. That’s how I viewed it. I never called out gym teachers “Coach”.
A school teacher? A Gym teacher? You guys are so making this up, and my copy doesn’t turn up until next Wednesday!
why cant we just buy a digital copy??? So STUPID, image would double their sales easily, and save the environment blah blah ballz, #DIGITALONYOURCHIN
You are forever whining like a little bratty, ungrateful grandchild who never gets enough ass cuts. Either go steal it like you know you wanna do or take it like it’s been given to you.
Finally picked Image+ up from my local comic book store. I imagined him being a cop, which would have been interesting as an anti-rick. But… I can easily see him as a football coach as well.
I’m glad they are doing these, but at the same time I’m not. Only because it humanizes Negan, lol. Seriously though, it’s so weird seeing him as a normal dude trying to be cool to kids.
I wonder if this is picking up as the apocalypse is occurring and “babe” is infected. With only a few of these, I can’t imagine them going too far in depth.
There with you, 100%. Too long of a wait in between such a tidbit of content!
Speaking of content, did you read that peek into A.D.? I’ll be waiting on that to release!
yes! I am intrigued!
Only 2 parts in & it’s not taking long at all to show that the apocalypse only fine tuned Negan’s rottenness! “Just a guy trying to survive” my ass!
He’s getting some ass.~
Talk about a dirt bag, still, I can’t wait to read more! I’m almost to his intro into the comics as well
So far so good. I hate back stories. Too often they end up ruining great characters and end up making them so much less interesting. I will never forgive the idiocy that was the Governor’s back story. I’m still a little unsure of how this will go. It’s still early and there’s a lot of room for them to fuck it up, but so far I’m enjoying it. This seems to be less about explaining why he is the way he is and more just letting us know what his life was like. This is what I wanted, but was too afraid to hope for. Pre-apocalypse Negan was still Negan.
Another title from #2 on my Watch List… that Kill or be Killed sounds like a keeper!
