Lance Hornsby is a character first encountered in Issue 175 of Image Comics' The Walking Dead. He is a book keeper for the Commonwealth. He is a man prideful of his community, though this makes him somewhat vain.
Nothing is known about Lance's life prior to or as the outbreak began. It is possible he lived in or near Ohio at the start of the outbreak.
