"He ain't going to be in here. Same as all the others we checked."
—Doug to Dante as they come upon a farm possibly containing Ken.[src]

Doug is a character first encountered in Issue 131 of Image Comics' The Walking Dead. He is part of the search party sent out to find Ken.


Location Unknown

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


Sometime in the apocalypse, Doug managed to find the Hilltop Colony and joined its community, becoming a guard.

After the discovery of Marco, Doug is assigned along with Dante and another guard to go looking for Ken who is missing.

As the trio search the uncharted territory for Ken, they come across a barn fitting the description Marco had told them where he had left Ken. Despite the uncertainty of Doug, all three set off inside where they discover Marco's beanie, but not Ken. They are soon ambushed by the undead as they begin to make their way into the barn.

Though vastly outnumbered, the trio manage to fight out of the barn and begin to attack the undead back to back. As they begin to thin the numbers of the undead, Doug is distraught as a roamer seemingly strikes out at him with a knife. He cries out that the undead are using weapons. Another soon striking one of the guards in the party.

Doug attempts to retreat but is stabbed in the back before being pounced on and repeatedly stabbed. The other guard is dispatched soon after, leaving Dante to face the new threat alone.

Dante manages to defeat the two "roamers" and, upon further inspection of the two corpses, discovers that they are survivors disguised as roamers.

Killed Victims

This list shows the victims Doug has killed:

  • Numerous counts of zombies and possibly unnamed people.


Killed By

In an attempt to retreat from the armed "walkers", Doug is stabbed in the back and pounced on before being stabbed repeatedly.



"Remind me not to get lost and count on you two to find me."
—Dante to Doug.[src]

Doug and Dante had a stable relationship. Both are guards for the Hilltop Colony, and appear to be friends, however Doug's comments and his need to oppose Dante create tension between the two. Dante, however, was shocked and saddened after Doug's death, and avenged Doug by killing his murderer.
