"We have no idea what effect, if any, this will have on us. He's not dead yet--and the meat was cooked. We don't have reason to worry yet."
—David about eating Dale's leg.[src]

David is a character and an antagonist first encountered in Issue 63 of Image Comics' The Walking Dead. He is a member of The Hunters.

Pre-Apocalypse

Location Unknown

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

Post-Apocalypse

Fear The Hunters

David was one of six cannibalistic survivors who stalked and preyed upon other living humans, namely the weak or isolated, for sustenance. Not much of his personality was revealed, only that he, like the others, listened to and obeyed the group's leader, Chris.

Like his peers, David had initially become a cannibal due to the circumstances of the new world and the scarcity of food; however, the extent of how much he agreed with his group's actions is unknown. Chris had revealed to Rick that they had eaten their own children to survive, and it is unknown if David had any children that was part of the re-telling.

David evidently appeared to be a level-headed member of the group; when the Hunters had realized Dale's leg was tainted due to Dale being infected from a zombie bite, David dismissed Albert and his fears of becoming undead. He suggested that because the meat was cooked and Dale was alive, that they had no reason to worry.

In the end, David and the other Hunters were mutilated and beaten to death by Rick and the others to avenge what they had done to Dale and all of their previous victims. Then, his body was later burned, along with the rest of his group.

Trivia

  • In-universe, David's theory never came to be seen as true or false, due to his and the rest of his group's deaths. However, Robert Kirkman revealed that he was right and that the leg was not infected.
