Josh is a character first encountered in Issue 173 of Image Comics' The Walking Dead. He is a former member of the Whisperers with his father Mike and an unnamed girl. They were very recent recruits and were about to be killed by other Whisperers for failing to adopt the Whisperer lifestyle, but were saved by Paul Monroe and Aaron.
Nothing is known about Josh's life prior to or as the outbreak began.
Josh is first seen at the diminished camp of the few remaining Whisperers following the fallout of the Whisperer war. He is seen unsuccessfully trying to adopt the ways of the Whisperers and wear the human flesh mask. During the conversation they refer to each other by their names and Josh and the other girl take off their "masks". This causes the other Whisperers to go and attempt to kill them while Mike begs for some time to adapt. Right before getting attacked by one of the Whisperers, the trio is saved by Paul Monroe and Aaron.
Aaron tells the group about the network of communities they have established, which promps Josh to eagerly ask if they make people wear human skin and get rid of their names.
This list shows the victims Josh has killed:
- Possibly a few zombies.
