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

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!

"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

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:
quote:
Hi,

The issues always release on the last Wednesday of each month, so you should see them 2-3 business days from those dates. June will release the 29th, July the 27th, etc.

Thanks,
Christina
The Image Direct Team



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..?

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:

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

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.

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.

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 for the hold up. Mail was delayed due to the holiday...





*Another touching scene. Negan clearly loved Lucille a lot.
*Negan's initial encounter with the dead is eerily similar to Rick's. What with shit hitting the fan at a hospital and whatnot.
