Negan Origin Story to Be Featured in IMAGE+ Magazine

New mini-series will provide an origin story for The Walking Dead's most infamous villain.


Everyone’s favorite The Walking Dead super villain will be getting an origin story.

According to, “Image Comics is launching a new advertorial-type magazine promoting its upcoming releases, and is serializing a new The Walking Dead to help raise interest in it. Image+ will be a 64-page magazine distributed alongside Diamond Comics Distributors’ monthly Previews catalog featuring news, interviews, previews and original comic book content.”

Four page installments will be included within the first 12 issues that promise to provide backstory to The Walking Dead‘s most infamous bad boy. This is exciting news for die-hard fans of The Walking Dead comic book series, as nothing is known about Negan’s life before the apocalypse began, except that he enjoyed billiards and ping-pong, and used to be a used cars salesman.

Mark your calendars because beginning in May, Image+ will be available on its own for $1.99, or included within your purchase of a Diamond’s Previews catalog.
