Negan is arguably The Walking Dead’s most infamous villain, so his fans will be pleased to discover his most cruel and hilarious one-liners are being paid homage to in an extremely quotable book.
Since debuting in The Walking Dead comic series and popular AMC television show, the bat-wielding bad guy has quickly become a fan favourite for his rough demeanour, dark satire and constant obscenities.
Played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Negan is the leader of a group of nearly 500 survivors in a place called the “Sanctuary”. Dubbed the “Saviours”, the party subjugates other survivors and forces them to pay tribute to him.
Brandishing the beautiful barb-wired “Lucille”, Negan is renowned for causing regular chaos. He is now being celebrated in the release of Robert Kirkman’s The Quotable Negan.
Kirkman said in a statement:
“Seeing all the vulgar and irreverent things that Negan says compiled into one book is simultaneously hilarious and disturbing … But even with all the awful stuff he’s said and done, there are some unexpected nuggets of wisdom and humanity in there, making him a surprisingly complex character. My only hope is that fans have just as much fun reading him as I have writing him!”
The Quotable Negan will be released July 3rd 2018, so the timing couldn’t be better, as AMC’s smash-hit series will also conclude its gripping eighth season.
