    Certainly sounds like JDM has taken to the role. :negan:

    We asked Morgan what it was like the first time he got to actually hold Lucille, and… well, his answer pretty much says it all.

    It was awesome,” says Morgan. “It really kind of, for me, informed my character and who I was — just kind of the heft of her and the love that he has for her. It makes him hard, for God’s sake, just holding her. But it was great care taken with Lucille from the guys that built her.”

    Morgan then went on to talk about the symbiotic relationship between Negan and Lucille, a relationship he says is even closer than we thought. “There’s something about her, especially when there’s blood dripping off her. There’s a certain beauty that she has. And for me it’s an extension of Negan. They become one in these scenes together. It’s his d—. I mean, for lack of a better thing, it really is.”

    A crude analogy, perhaps, but one that make sense and tracks if you are familiar with the vulgarity of the character. Allow Morgan to explain. “It’s how he walks differently with her, he holds her, and it’s a part of him. He uses her to emphasize certain points, not just ‘I’m going to kill you.’ There’s a thing that he has with Lucille, and it’s as close to love as maybe Negan will ever have. He loves Lucille. She’s a character of her own. I mean, she really is, and I love the way he talks about her and he feels about her and how he treats her. But yeah, the first time I held her I knew — this is it.”​

    It's fascinating to me that Lucille is a phallic symbol, and yet (in Negan's mind) is female.

    Maybe Lucille is Negan's clit. :negan:

    Well it was all always weird as fuck to me in the comics so I'm going to take this as confirmation that it's going to be the same for show. :lol:

    Negan seems to me like a guy who would be quick to assert himself as a masculine, heterosexual male. If others are gay, hey go right ahead, but not Negan, no way.

    Does that seem about right?

    He is quick to present himself as masculine, but there are some eye brow raising moments when it comes to his sexuality. Or maybe that's just me reading into things that I'd like to see. :negan:

    I just wonder if he has to think of Lucille as female because of his sexual attraction to it.

    In the GN, Lucille is the name of his late wife. They're releasing the pages slow, so I have not read why he decides to name the bat after his wife.

    Ahh, I see. So his symbol of sexuality is equated with his wife. Makes sense to me.
    ETA: Sorry about forgetting the spoiler tag at first.
    Do we need the tag, though, if it is published material out there for all to read?

    This is both interesting and hilarious :lol:
    I just see Lucille as an ego booster and something that makes him feel more tough or "manly." (kinda hate that term tho)

    I've always been convinced Negan has a teeny tiny penis and that's why he takes such pride in swingin' around big, tough Lucille. I'd love to hear JDM's thoughts on that one...
