The comic series is really a guide, not a gospel for the show .. Negan debuted in Issue 100 I believe .. it's now pushing issue 160 .. so, he will be around for a while .. I don't believe he will be a one or two season character, IOW ..
Without spoiling anything, unless dramatic changes occur between the comics and the show (and there have been some over the years) .. the Negan character has promise, at some point, to become more interesting and show greater depth ..
Although I agree with much of the assessment here, and have posted much the same since the new season, I remain cautiously optimistic that Kirkman and Crew will, at some point, explore the character beyond what we have seen so far ..
My only point being, we are early in and throwing in the towel may be a bit premature ... YMMV ..
