The Walking Dead fans have a new graphic novel to look forward to this fall. Image has just revealed first details about The Walking Dead: Here’s Negan!, a new hardcover chronicling the origin of the popular villain.
Here’s Negan! will reprint the serialized story that’s been running in the pages of the Image+ magazine over the past year. The book features the same creative team as the main series – writer Robert Kirkman and artists Charlie Adlard and Cliff Rathburn.
Here’s Negan! has showcased Negan’s life before his debut in The Walking #100, exploring the loss of his wife in the earliest days of the zombie apocalypse, his first meeting with former right-hand-man Dwight, how he acquired his trademark baseball bat, Lucille, and how he came to be the feared leader of the Saviors. There’s no word yet if the hardcover will include any new story material or supplemental content.
The hardcover collection of Walking Dead: Here’s Negan! is priced at $19.99 and is due for release on Wednesday, October 4 in comic shops and Tuesday, October 10 in bookstores.
