Negan Lives In An All New Retailer-Supporting One-Shot From Kirkman And Adlard
by Olly MacNamee
Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard are getting the band back together for one more encore with the announcement of a return to the world of The Walking Dead with Negan Lives one-shot coming this July. What’s more, Kirkman and Adlard are showing their support for retailers by ensuring that no store picks up any freighting costs. And that’s not all:
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. – Robert Kirkman
That’s right, all revenue goes back to supporting brick and mortar stores. Another generous initiative by one of comicdom’s leading lights.
Set after The Walking Dead #174 – Negan’s last appearance – this story catches up with him after being hunted down by a vengeful Maggie. A must for all fans of this series and a simple way of showing support for your local comic book store.
Look out for Negan Lives #1 on Wednesday, July 1.
