So I've been marathoning this series since Monday and I'm on Issue #115. Man oh man... I've been missing out.

I thought the Governor was an evil SOB, but Negan is just... mindblowingly evil. Most monstrous villain I think I've ever come across.

RIP Glenn. :tsad:
RIP Abraham. :tsad:

They're going to war. Anyone want to talk the comics with me? I figured I'd better make this a separate thread (and I couldn't find a preexisting one for the comics) so that I don't inadvertently spoil anything on the show.

it's been a while since i read the first Negan appearance, but yeah that guy is the villain you LOVE to HATE!!!! :D

he's actually become one of my favorite Walking Dead characters!
i mean Glenn's death was horrible and all, but MAN was he so damned funny about how he went about it!!!! :lol:

"Lucile's a Vampire Bat!" :lol:

Nah, he's too far out for me to laugh at all. I mean, the things he says would be funny but he's just too unhinged. And not in a crazy way, but in a completely sociopathic way.

He's chilling. I think my favorite character who's still alive would have to be... I dunno, Carl, Rick, and Andrea. And Michonne and Ezekiel. Most of my favorites died already... Lori, Glenn, Abraham, Tyrese... this book is more brutal than Game of Thrones. :tlol:

when i first read him, i REALLY hated Negan and wanted him dead like YESTERDAY!!! :lol:

but as the arc went on - he was very sociopathic, but he was also very charming in a very dark humored twisted way!

it was his interactions with Carl that actually made be begin to feel for Negan.
i mean sure he was a vicious killer, but he also had a tremendous singing voice! :lol:

Nah, he's The Walking Dead's Joker. He's captivating, but it's like a cobra hypnotizing its prey.

He's charismatic and a leader, and absolutely the worst human being. There's something seriously wrong with him... somebody should have ended him long ago.

In new issues, the Whisperers are fascinating. Bizarre buggers... can't wait to see where it goes.

yeah, i've gotten up to issue 150.

i was reading the series in TPB but i sold all my trades as well as he compendiums i was collection to convert to digital.

and i'm liking reading the series on comixology MUCH better!!!
the guided view is dope plus i can get the new issues after they've been out for a month or so for a dollar cheaper!
so i've been buying them in groups of 6 once they are all $1.99 an issue. :D

sure i'm only saving 6 bucks by doing it that way?
but that's $6 i can put towards more comics! :D

So THAT happened...

Negan killed Alpha. Straight up decapitation. Dang, what's his play!?

That former used cars salesman is one sick SOB. :teek:

OH GOD I'M SO HAPPY YOU'RE READING THEM.

The comics are just so damn good. Superior to the show in every way.

But that twist at the end of #156 was shocking as all ****. My jaw hasn't hit the floor that much since #100.

Yeah, I spent two weeks marathoning the series. Best freaking comic series I've ever read that wasn't TMNT. :tcool: Just hearing all the changes the show makes, I'm not even going to bother watching.

Besides, Jeffrey Dean Morgan ain't no Negan. Doesn't look a thing like a used car salesman.

JDM's a pretty decent Negan in my opinion. I still think Henry Rollins would be better, though. Or Kevin Durand.

And yeah, the show's kinda... Well. One episode's great, one's not, one's good, one's terrible, etc.

The cliffhanger at the end of Season 6 really ruined the show for me. I don't think I'm gonna bother watching Season 7. The comics are just way superior.

He's a great actor, and I think he has the voice for it... but the physical look is so important. Negan shouldn't LOOK like a threat. JMD usually does, 'cause he's a badass.

I'm a few issues behind at the moment but I love the comic series! Just when you thought it couldn't get worse than Negan the new threat shows up to prove you wrong!

I don't really buy the Whisperers as "worse" than Negan. The thing with Negan and the Governor was that both of them were cruel megalomaniacs.

The Whisperers COULD have been coexisted with, if not for the mistakes and choices Carl, Rick, et al made. So now it's war, but it's a war that could've been avoided.

Negan is absolutely my favorite character by now. This issue was INSANE.

Kinda funny how your first post was talking about how Negan was worse than the Governor but now he's your favorite character. As for the issue this shows way I love Negan as a character, despite his brutality and lack of eloquence(seriously take a shot every time he says the word f$%k) the dude is very tactful and a competent negotiator, he can read people like a book and uses that talent to control them. When he first appeared as the leader of the Saviors I was asking to myself "Why hasn't anyone put a bullet to the back of this dudes head" but after reading this issue I kinda see why everyone followed him.

I've always enjoyed him as a character, but he has finally convinced me that he CAN be redeemed.

If he's pulling a fast one, he's conned me along with Rick and company. :twink:

I've always wanted to start reading TWD but so much is available and I have so little time with all the TMNT. However I'm in the middle of season seven on Netflix. This season has really got me interested in Negan. I'm really wanting to know his backstory.

Considering I don't have a lot of time to read everything I want, but am interested in Negan, this upcoming release looks great. I will most likely buy it. I already spoiled some of the story for myself but that's fine. I had to know things and read about them online.

Link is to the Negan book I'm most likely getting, not to any spoilers. Anyone else thinking about picking this up?

i really want to get that book too.
but i hear it's very short for the price it's being sold for.

it's in my wish-list waiting for it to go on sale.
eventually i'll get it.

if you do ever read just one Walking Dead story, i highly recommend Vol. 1 Days Gone Bye.

https://www.amazon.com/Walking-Dead-Vol-Days-Gone/dp/1582406723

it's issues 1-6 of the comic series, and a very good self contained arc.
however if you are not opposed to digital i strongly suggest going through Comixology. i used to collect the physical TPB copies but they began taking up a LOT of room.
i converted to buying the single issue bundles on comixology.

https://www.comixology.com/The-Walking-Dead-1-48/bundle/893

issue #1 is actually offered for free.
