"Rick Grimes. We saw Andrea when she arrived. She was not well. Dwight told us Sherry wanted us to help you clean up while you tended to her. We all respected Andrea. It was in honor of that respect that we assisted you one last time. We are sorry for your loss."
—John to Rick.[src]

John​ is a character, and later an antagonist first encountered in Issue 104 of Image Comics' The Walking Dead. He is one of the original members of The Saviors. John serves as the secondary antagonist of Volume 28: A Certain Doom.


Location Unknown

Nothing is known about John's life prior to or as the outbreak began. Expect that he may had an accident due to the fact that he has a blind eye before the outbreak.


Here's Negan

John is mentioned by Negan, showing that John was one of the original Saviors.

What Comes After

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.

The Whisperer War

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.

Killed Victims

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]

Although he followed Dwight's lead for over two years and survived with him for over four years, John states in Issue 165 that he always hated him.


Sherry and John had a close relationship, and John respects her leadership.



  • John is blind in his right eye, whether this was because of an accident pre-apocalypse or post-apocalypse has yet to be determined.
