When Negan made his debut on the sixth season finale of The Walking Dead most fans praised the series for their faithful adaptation of the ruthless comic book character. However, while Negan’s attitude, dialogue and clothing were near perfect mirrors of his comic book counterpart, viewers did take note of one major difference between both versions of the character.
While Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s version of the character sported a beard, the comic book version was completely clean shaven. Now, a new set photo from the Spoiling Dead Fans Facebook page suggests that the live-action Negan may soon be ditching the beard for a look more familiar to comic book readers.
