"For a chance to be my own man. For the opportunity to actually see my brother again. For a life where I don't have to worry about having my face melted with an iron... I don't care how good our lives have been. I'm with you... And I'm pretty sure there are others that would be, too."
—Carson to Dwight.[src]

Carson is a character first introduced in Issue 105 of Image Comics' The Walking Dead and is a prominent member of The Saviors.


Location Unknown

Nothing is known about Carson's life before or as the outbreak began.


What Comes After

Carson is seen asking Negan about the recent gunfire from Carl, asking if everything's alright and if they need to worry about it, he is also the one who informs Negan that the iron is ready for Mark's punishment.

All Out War - Part One

He is later seen in the Sanctuary when Rick's forces have trapped him and the rest of The Saviors inside, by using noise to draw a huge herd to the Sanctuary. He asks Negan if he should set up a meeting, Negan tells him no as there are more "pressing" matters to attend with.

All Out War - Part Two

Carson is seen along with Negan and Dwight after capturing Eugene. After Negan leaves to have sex with his wives, Carson and Dwight stay behind with Eugene. Dwight explains to Eugene that he is secretly on Rick's side. Carson overhears the conversation, and says as good as his life in the Sanctuary is, he'd much rather be able to see his brother again and live freely. He tells Dwight he will aid him in his rebellion against Negan. A few hours later, he breaks out Eugene and the rest of the hostages, along with Mark and Amber, who say they want to come with him.

Whispers To Screams

Carson crosses Maggie on the Hilltop, and asks her where his brother Harlan is. She replies by telling him that he might be in the infirmary.

Killed Victims

This list shows the victims Carson killed:

  • Possibly numerous counts of zombies.



They were presumed to have a stable relationship. In Issue 122, it's shown that Carson discovered Dwight's plan to revolt against Negan. Despite being one of Negan's trusted men, Carson ultimately joined Dwight's plot and said that there were others who'd be willing to join as well.


Carson seems to be Negan's man of trust inside the main base, as he is the one to inform Negan of the various events of the base and the one to organize Negan's Iron punishment. However, it is revealed in Issue 122 that he secretly hates Negan and wants to help Dwight take him down.
