SPOILER – DO NOT READ ON IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS IN THE COMIC BOOK SERIES
In the comic series, Negan is the leader of a ruthless group of survivors.
While the TV series has left us questioning the fate of Glenn (Steve Yeun), in the comic book adaptation Glenn is killed by Negan with a baseball bat covered in wire. This doesn’t look good for Glenn if he does make it out of the Zombie herd.
The original comics also include stories of Negan battling Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and his group in Alexandria. Perhaps this is on the cards too?
Regardless, getting an actor of Morgan’s capabilities is a win for The Walking Dead and promises to bring a great deal of excitement into the seventh season.
