Robert Kirkman is dipping into the world of The Walking Dead one more time with the July release of Negan Lives #1.
Spurned by a slowly rebuilding society, Negan lives a life of desperate isolation… or does he? In the tradition of Here’s Negan, this all-new story in Negan Lives #1 gives readers a glimpse into what has happened to one The Walking Dead’s most popular characters in the time since his last appearance in The Walking Dead #174.
Kirkman is teaming up with Charlie Adlard for an issue that is only going to be available in print, and not digital, in a weird move that is sure to pay off big time for the publisher.
“While Charlie Adlard and I had laid the series to rest, this felt like something special we could do for the store owners who made our series a success to begin with. To that end, I’m happy to report that 100% of the revenue generated from this book will go to the stores selling it. The retailer community does backbreaking work to get comics into the hands of our loving fans, we should all be doing more in these trying times to show them how appreciated they are,” said Kirkman in a press release from Image Comics.
Negan Lives #1 will arrive on July 1, 2020.
