Here's Negan Discussion: Part II

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…

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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?

    • Epic A April 28, 2016 at 4:31 am - Reply

      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.

      • Ashlyn April 28, 2016 at 10:48 am - Reply

        I just bought mine from eBay too. I searched “Image+ Here’s Negan” and it was the first thing to come up.

      • MikeLacey April 28, 2016 at 9:16 pm - Reply

        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?

    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!!

    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.

  12. leo biderman April 28, 2016 at 6:33 pm - Reply

    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.

  13. leo biderman April 28, 2016 at 6:37 pm - Reply

    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.

  14. TeamGrimes April 28, 2016 at 9:53 pm - Reply

    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!

  16. MikeLacey April 30, 2016 at 3:37 am - Reply

    A school teacher? A Gym teacher? You guys are so making this up, and my copy doesn’t turn up until next Wednesday!

  17. Hobbs May 1, 2016 at 2:50 am - Reply

    why cant we just buy a digital copy??? So STUPID, image would double their sales easily, and save the environment blah blah ballz, #DIGITALONYOURCHIN

    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.

  19. BASTET. May 31, 2016 at 4:08 pm - Reply

    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!

    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!
