Negan to Have Book of Wisdom
The Walking Dead ‘s favorite bad guy is your new life coach. Negan, everyone’s favorite wielder of Lucille, is going to have a big book of quotes. The Quotable Negan will be released by Skybound Books, which is Walking Dead writer Robert Kirkman’s imprint at Atria Books. The full-color book will have 128 pages of words of wisdom. Also, it will have curse words and shocking statements that prove it’s no regular self-help book.
Kirkman, of course, has a lot of insight on one of his most famous creations. “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!”
Life Coach in a Leather Jacket
You won’t get just Negan’s best zingers in this book. It will include the standalone story, Here’s Negan. The story tells us how our favorite sociopath came to be. It focuses on his relationship with his wife, his growing anger as a gym teacher, and how his world fell apart. This also includes the origin of Lucille, his barbed-wire wrapped baseball bat and weapon of choice. The story helps humanize the villain, and has become a fan favorite. Kirkman will provide an introduction to the book as well as several facts known and unknown about Negan. Unfortunately, there will be no contribution from Jeffery Dean Morgan, who plays the part on The Walking Dead. It would have been nice to see how he gets into the character’s head, as well as the psychology of the character.
The book will be released on July 3rd, 2018. Preorders have already begun.
