‘The Walking Dead’ Comic Rises Again With ‘Negan Lives!’ In July

Image Comics stunned fans today with an announcement of a surprise one-shot coming in July titled Negan Lives! Writer and series creator Robert Kirkman returns to the beloved series with long-time artist Charlie Adlard joining him.

 This shipment arriving in July will be without financial burden to receiving retailers—with no freight cost for them to worry about. “I’ve been inspired by Steve Geppi and Diamond’s efforts to shine a light on how essential the Direct Market is to our beloved industry with their #backthecomeback campaign,” said Kirkman. “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.”

The book will give readers a glimpse into what has happened to one of The Walking Dead‘s most popular characters in the time since his last appearance in The Walking Dead #174.

The 36-page, black and white comic book will be available at comic shops on Wednesday, July 1. Stay tuned to Horror News Network for the latest on this Walking Dead comic.
