- "What's the matter, Dwight? Tired?"
- —John to Dwight.[src]
John is a character and an antagonist first introduced in Issue 104 of Image Comics' The Walking Dead. He is a prominent and one of the original members of The Saviors. He is the secondary antagonist of Volume 28.
Nothing is known about John's life prior to or as the outbreak began.
John is mentioned by Negan, showing that John was one of the original Saviors.
John is first seen with Tara attempting to capture Paul Monroe. John asks Paul to surrender, stating that he remembers him from the Hilltop and that he was nice, so he promises not to hurt him if he comes peacefully. Tara then threatens that she will cut off Paul's testicles while brandishing her knife. Paul kicks John, Tara, and another Savior down, but they hop to their feet, attempting to gain control of him. Tara subdues Paul, and John watches as she prepares to kill Paul, but Dwight intervenes, stating that Negan wishes to question him.
After the two year time skip, John is still alive and well. While Vincent tries to convince the Saviors to help others on the upcoming war. John and Tara are resistant to do so as they now have no alliance with any community after Dwight left. John tells him to leave his horse at the Sanctuary. Tara says the Whisperers will come after them after they take down Rick's crew, in which John does not care, wanting them to come.
This list shows the victims John has killed:
- Numerous counts of zombies and possibly unnamed people.
- "I always hated you."
- —John as he chokes Dwight[src]
- "Part 11"
- John is blind in his right eye, whether this was because of an accident pre-apocalypse or post-apocalypse has yet to be determined.
