There is only a few days left to wait before knowing what will happen in episode 12 of season 7 of The Walking Dead and melty continues to help you wait until then with some speculation about season 8. As some fans already know, the character of Negan is revealed for some time not only in the series AMC but also in comics focused on him entitled “Here’s Negan” . This miniseries tells a little about who was Negan before the zombie apocalypse and allows the readers to better understand the character and his motivations. The executive producer and showrunner Scott Gimple has already declared to be fan of the miniseries and want to integrate elements in the series since ” He can now talk about Negan knowing a little more about who he’s dealing with. One wonders if, in the rest of the series, it could be that flashbacks based on “Here’s Negan” complete the episodes.
Watch out for the spoilers on comics in the US in what follows. After all if the series follows the comics, Negan should lose the war against Rick and his lock-up in cell and the discussions he might have with Rick would be a good opportunity to delve into the past of the charismatic villain to know him a little better.

Who never wanted to see the past of Daryl and Merle Dixon, their difficult relationship with their father and what gave the two brothers the foundation to become the characters we saw in The Walking Dead . The same goes for Rick, although we already had some insights and the presence of Lori and Carl made it easier to share memories and hence information about his past. On the practical side, flashbacks can be difficult since, in addition to makeup the actors, it is also necessary to be able to insert them logically in the narrative frame and continue to advance the series. But we always have the right to dream …
The existence of a support on the past of Negan remains the most encouraging since the writers would have to draw in these pages to show us a little more on the character .

From the origin of the name of Lucille to his pre-apocalypse profession, “Here’s Negan” is full of information that is hoped to be exploited later, whether in season 8 of The Walking Dead or in the following ones. But for now, it is time to prepare for the war against him and the gathering of communities. Until we know if we will ever see Negan’s past, Discover the great moment you may have missed in episode 11 of season 7 of The Walking Dead !
