Since his debut in Walking Dead #100, Negan, the charismatic psychopath antagonist to Rick Grimes, has become a fan favourite. It was only a matter of time before they dove into his past to show us what lead him down the path of enthusiastic violence we've witnessed throughout the series since his arrival. This origin story was originally serialised monthly in IMAGE+ magazine, but now Here's Negan will be getting the hardcover treatment this October, and we're celebrating its arrival with a signed and exclusive bookplate produced for us by series artist Charlie Adlard!

We strongly suspect these will sell out before release.Read More
