Negan may have only just shown up on The Walking Dead TV show, but he has been terrorizing Rick and the others in the comics for quite a while. Even there, though, he’s still as much as an unknown quantity as he is on TV—until now, as a new comic is set to explore his origin.
The 48-page story, “Here’s Negan,” is of course being written by Robert Kirkman with art from Charlie Adlard, and is being told in the pages of Image+, the publisher’s recently announced previews publication that will detail upcoming comics solicitations for retailers, as well as provide other bonus original comics material. The story will be told through four-page bites in every monthly issue of Image+; here’s the very first page, which was revealed this week by The Hollywood Reporter:

The first issue of Image+ will be available April 27th, for $1.99.
