Negan is getting his own book. Skybound Entertainment, the publisher behind The Walking Dead comic book series, has announced The Quotable Negan, a hardcover book that is all about everyone's favorite bat-wielding maniac.

Among the most popular characters in The Walking Dead comic book series, Negan is the leader of the Saviors, a ruthless group of survivors who use violence and intimidation to force surrounding communities to supply the Saviors with food and goods. He is best known for his use of expletives and Lucille, the baseball bat wrapped with barbed wire that he carries with him everywhere.

“Seeing all the vulgar and irreverent things that Negan says compiled into one book is simultaneously hilarious and disturbing,” The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman said in the press release, “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!”

The Quotable Negan will contain Negan's "most memorable one-liners from the comic book series." It will also include the complete Here's Negan! comic, a one-off origin story about Negan. There will also be a bunch of "fun facts" about his "reign of terror." These words would seem creepy in any other context, but somehow, with Negan, they just seem fitting.

The Quotable Negan will be 128 full-color pages, focused exclusively on the comic book iteration of Negan, and will be released on July 3. It is available for preorder from the Skybound Shop.
