Darth Vader Trades His Lightsaber For Lucille In Walking Dead Mashup Art

If you've seen "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story," then you know that it made Darth Vader one of the most ferocious villains of 2016. Of course, there's one other guy that could give Vader some competition in that made up category -- and that's "The Walking Dead's" Negan. Played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan, the popular villain made his live-action debut last year on the AMC zombie drama, and he did so in a spectacularly gruesome manner.

Now, "Walking Dead" executive producer Greg Nicotero has shared a piece of art that mashes up Darth Vader and the Imperial forces with Negan and his crew. In the art, illustrated by Robert Shane, Vader stands wearing Negan's trademark red bandana and carrying his barbwire-covered bat, Lucille. Kneeling before him are some Rebel prisoners -- prisoners that probably wish Vader was still carrying a comparatively merciful lightsaber.

Artist Robert Shane's Deviant Art page also includes a companion piece, one that shows where Vader's lightsaber ended up. Unfortunately for everyone in Rick's group, it ended up in the hands of Negan himself.

"The Walking Dead" returns to AMC for the second half of its seventh season on February 12 at 9 pm ET/PT. "The Walking Dead" stars Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes, Chandler Riggs as Carl Grimes, Norman Reedus as Daryl Dixon, Melissa McBride as Carol Peleteir, Lauren Cohan as Maggie Green, Danai Gurira as Michonne and more.
