Here's Negan! - The Backstory Of TWD's Most Lovable Antagonist!

Text-only Version: Click HERE to see this thread with all of the graphics, features, and links.



Galan007
It just dawned on me that "IMAGE+" doesn't appear to have been digitally scanned/ripped at this point in time... So many of you comic-pirates haven't been able to check out the initial installment of the "HERE'S NEGAN!" backstory.

For those unaware:
"Each of the first 12 issues will include a four-page "Walking Dead" story by the series creative team of writer Robert Kirkman and artist Charlie Adlard, involving the origins of notorious antagonist Negan and totaling 48 pages of story -- equivalent to slightly more than two typical single issue comics."
Source]

Luckily for you TWD fans, I have a subscription to this series and personally took the time to scan/upload the pages for you. If needed, I will continue doing so until the entire story is complete. The scans aren't the best quality(did it from my phone, lol), but they're better than what you had! evil face

FYI, I do believe that I am the first person on the interweb to post all of the pages(hence the watermarks, lol.) So without further adieu... Enjoy! g007_pirate

Awesome. Keep 'em coming. Next chapt in 2 weeks?

Galan007
"IMAGE+" is a monthly title, so you can expect Chapter 3 sometime around the end of next month.

Just so y'all know, it usually takes 2-3 business days for my physical copies to arrive in the mail. IOW, if the issue is released Wednesday, I should have my copy by the following Monday at the latest. And like I mentioned in the OP: when I receive an issue, I will post the scans for you as soon as practical. thumb up

Galan007
Because the release dates for the issues of "IMAGE+" seem like they are impossible very hard to find through random searches, I asked the customer service folks at Image Comics if they could send me that information directly. This was their response:



With that in mind, these *should* be the official release dates for the remaining chapters of the "Here's Negan!" backstory:

*Chapter 01: 04/27/16
*Chapter 02: 05/25/16
*Chapter 03: 06/29/16
*Chapter 04: 07/27/16
*Chapter 05: 08/31/16
*Chapter 06: 09/28/16
*Chapter 07: 10/26/16
*Chapter 08: 11/30/16
*Chapter 09: 12/28/16
*Chapter 10: 01/25/17
*Chapter 11: 02/22/17
*Chapter 12: 03/29/17

That was actually a pretty touching scene, but now we get to see Negan go into survival mode... I do wonder what'll happen to his sickly wife, though.


Sidenote: I wonder if this is why Negan is turned-on by Alpha's bald head..? mmm

Galan007
These pages are from TWD #156. Thought I should post them here, because they are very relevant to what we are currently seeing in Negan's backstory:
http://i.imgur.com/Xbrwzhxm.jpg http://i.imgur.com/0nvDRqnm.jpg

Evidently Negan losing his wife(as we are now seeing in the backstory) is what transformed him into the man cold-blooded badass he is today... Pretty cool that Kirkman tied an essential plot-point from the backstory into the main series. thumb up

One_Angry_Scot
The more the story goes on the more I find myself liking Negan. He may be the so called "villain" but I don't think he really is that.

Also hopefully in the next issue we of Here's Negan we might see him in his first encounters with Walkers. Imagine what he would say when he sees one for the first time. Bet that'll be funny.

One_Angry_Scot
Sorry for spamming this thread, but something else I was thinking is if everyone is infected at this stage Negan might have to kill his wife after she gets back up. That must really **** up his mind.

Galan007
I'm betting his wife's name is Lucille, and he named his trademark weapon after her(remember, the backstory began with Negan wrapping barbed wire around the bat--essentially creating Lucille.)

Maybe the bat was a present from her? Maybe he used it to kill her after she turned? Dunno. Either way, the bat enabled Negan to survive... To prosper... To lead. Hell, he loved that thing as though it were a person. It clearly had some sort of sentimental/emotional value to him, and that's probably why. In some strange/twisted way, it reminded him of his beloved wife.

I doubt 'Lucille' was just some name he randomly pulled from his ass.

Yeah I think this will turn out to be the case.

This month long wait is a killer.

Thanks Galan, enjoyed that. I guess he'll end up killing Lucille with the bat or something. You can definitely see why he is what he is.

Sorry I know this isn't the right place for it, but I figured galant would know.

Was the terminus stuff in the comics played out longer and was it better?

Galan007
^ Terminus wasn't in the comics. The Hunters/cannibals that followed the group after they left the Prison were, but that's it.


Also, there is a formal TWD comic discussion thread:

To ensure my scans don't get buried, I ask that everyone post all non-Negan-related TWD questions there.

Like I've said a few times now: I really like that Kirkman is nonchalantly linking TWD's current happenings with the 'Here's Negan' backstory in IMAGE+. After all, you would only know that Negan's wife's name was Lucille if you had been following his backstory(or if you'd visited this thread.) stick out tongue

That has got to be one of the best quotes in the series. laughing out loud


*Also, Negan finally meets Dwight(crazy to see his face look normal, btw), who will presumably take him back to the factory. So I would imagine the final 2 issues of Negan's backstory will depict his subsequent rise to power, and creation of The Saviors... Should be quite good. evil face

...Only one more issue until his backstory is wrapped up. sad

REALLY good chapter.

Adam Grimes
So Dwight's job was the same as Daryl's in the show, drawing even more parallelisms between both characters. Cool as phuck stuff.

*Negan has certainly asserted himself as leader of the group, and we will only see his power/control grow from here.

___________________________________


More importantly, it was confirmed by Kirkman in a recent 'Letter Hacks' section of TWD that Negan's backstory is being extended. It will now run for 16 issues instead of 12:

So there will be a few more updates to come! big grin

Anyway, this issue shows us how the numbers in Negan's group really began to grow. I'd imagine that he will start laying down the law very soon, and usurp total control of the Saviors... Good shit. thumb up

I'd imagine that he will start laying down the law very soon, and usurp total control of the Saviors... Good shit. thumb up Called it, lol. thumb up



Here's Negan! (Chapter 14):

*Lucille claims her first victim, and Negan finally asserts his iron-fisted leadership role.... Absolutely glorious moment! big grin

Ha, that was wicked. thumb up

Also note that Negan's above scrap left him with a pretty significant injury to his right flank:

So I'd guess that is how he got this scar:

*He did imply there was a good story behind it, after all, and certainly the first time he bashed a persons head in with Lucille would qualify... evil face

riv6672
Yes it would qualify!
I love when stories are layered like that.

A hardcover of Here's Negan is being released in October.

Once the final part of Negan's backstory has been released(which *should* be next month), I will post the entire series sequentially in this thread. That way it can all be read from start to finish, in one post.

^^^I'm glad you arent paying through the nose for this!

Negan's popularity, well, i'm sure he was meant to BE popular, but the degree to which he's taken astranglehold on pop culture?
I cant see that being planned.
More like lightning in a bottle and good marketing.

*The Lucille we all know and love is *officially* born.
*I also enjoy the humanity in Negan -- in his decision to do what he did, and bash that guy's f*cking skull in. He certainly didn't enjoy killing people(he's said as much in past issues), but he did it for the greater good...Or what he *thought* was the greater good, at least.

Pure excellence. thumb up


Remember, the final issue/portion of the backstory should be released next month... It's been a fun ride! salute

riv6672
His first captive audience, too.
That must've been nerve wracking, having to watch him dress Lucille.

Here's Negan! (Chapter 16) (FINALE):

*That was a fan-f*cking-tastic way to end the backstory/series!!
*I'll post the entire backstory sequentially(from start to finish) very soon, and will also get a mod to edit it into the OP so people don't have to page-hop to enjoy it.
*Been posting Negan's story for well over a year now... It's been a fun ride, and I hope you have all enjoyed it. salute
