Never really cared for the TV series, but I really liked him in the comics, so brilliantly insane and hateable. I loved the Walking Dead comics before his appearance, but his story arc is what made it one of my very favorite comic book series of all time. The 'Rise Of The Governor' book has also added a lot of depth to him. I like Negan as well, but I just don't think he's in the same league.
I didn't really like Comic Governor all that much because of him raping Michonne and killing Tyreese (one of my all time favorites) Though I agree he did cause alot of shit to happen, I personally liked TV Governor better.
