"Sure, man--whatever. But, uh...why are you doing this? You need me somewhere else or something?"
—Curtis to Martinez about pulling him off the wall.[src]

Curtis is a character and an antagonist first encountered in Issue 32 of Image Comics' The Walking Dead. He is a resident living in Woodbury. He is described as being a young black kid with a spindly body.


Location Unknown

Nothing is known about Curtis' life before or as the outbreak began. He may have lived in or near Woodbury before the outbreak.


Woodbury, Georgia

Curtis is taking watch on a temporary barricade of riveted steel, as Martinez approaches him and calls his name, which startles him. He was described to be wearing hip-hop regalia, with a headband around his Jheri curls and looks slightly stoned and more than a little paranoid. As Curtis hops down to the pavement, Martinez talks him into leaving his post, and takes his AK so that they can escape from Woodbury. Curtis hands him his firearm and walks down the alley. Later, after the Governor is attacked by Michonne, it is said that Curtis hung behind at the alley, and witnessed Martinez jumping the fence and Michonne splitting from the group. Curtis goes on a supply run for fuel later, along with Wes, Rudy, Matthew and Raymond.


Killed By

Its assumed that if Curtis was involved in the war between Woodbury and the Prison, he was either killed by the Prison residents in the first or second assault, or he was devoured by the walkers that overran the prison.
