'The Walking Dead's Negan To Benefit Food Banks In UK

Negan isn't exactly known for being altruistic, but luckily that doesn't apply to the comics he stars in.

Thanks to comic shop Close Encounters in Northhampton, UK fans have the chance to bid on a Here's Negan blind box variant through eBay. It's no ordinary comic though, as the issue is signed by both Charlie Adlard and Robert Kirkman, and even includes a sketch by Adlard.

The issue is graded at a 9.8, but the best part of the auction is that all the proceeds from the sale will go to Spencer Bridge Foodbank in Northampton. The official website describes a bit more about what they do.

"We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry. That’s why we provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis. We are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK."

You can check out the auction here.

As for Negan, fans have gotten to know the charismatic villain (played by Jefferey Dean Morgan) a bit more during season 8, and that will only continue when the series returns next year, including slivers of the aforementioned Here's Negan storyline.

"There is a lot of Negan's backstory out there," Morgan told fans at Walker Stalker Atlanta. "We haven't filmed any of that, but there are conversations with a few characters where we'll find out a little more about him. We'll have some quieter moments this year, some one-on-one interactions where you'll learn more about where he's from. Even if you hate Negan, you're gonna start to understand how he became the man that he is and why he does the things that he does. I'm learning more about Negan every time I put on my leather jacket."
