"I never thought I'd live to see the day Rick Grimes became a fucking pussy. Maybe it's time for Maggie to take over all the communities. She knows how to take care of a problem."
—Marco to Rick, mocking his leadership.[src]

Marco is a character first encountered in Issue 128 of Image Comics' The Walking Dead, along with Ken.

Pre-Apocalypse

Location Unknown

Nothing is known about Marco's life before the apocalypse.

Post-Apocalypse

A New Beginning

In uncharted territory, Marco is seen riding one of the Hilltop's horses, with Ken when the duo come across a pack of wild horses. Marco urges Ken that the two should head back, but Ken, eager to bring the horses back to the Hilltop, heads off in a rush to try and wrangle the horses. When hurrying too much, Ken manages to plow through several roamers causing the horse to crash. The horse dies from the crash and nearly gets himself killed as well.

As Ken struggles to lift the dead horse, who is on his leg, one of the roamers tries crawling to him but is killed as Marco catches up to him. He manages to get the horse off of Ken's leg as more of the undead begin to appear. The man helps Ken onto his horse and the two ride off. As they do so, Ken groans out how much his leg hurts to which Marco responds that really he needs to worry about how pissed Maggie will be after finding out they lost a horse.

Ken and Marco are riding horseback on a plain field. Ken appears ill and falls off the horse, claiming he cannot go on any further. Marco then climbs off of the horse to assist Ken. As they talk, the horse gallops away and roamers begin to close in. The duo attempts to catch up with the horse, as Ken wonders what the sound of the roamers really is.

Later on, they continue their journey back to Hilltop and exhausted, hide in a ditch as a herd passes by. They both hear whispers, and assume the zombies themselves are speaking. He is found an unknown period of time later, alone near the road to Hilltop, being rescued by guards.

After being treated and waking up, he reveals that he left Ken to die, saying the whispers scared him. Whispers allegedly coming from the zombies.

Whispers Into Screams

At the medical office, Marco explains to Maggie and Jesus that he had left Ken to die, and that he'd heard at least three Whisperers. Jesus deducts that it's the same group of people he had encountered, but it was odd that the group was so far away from where he'd been attacked. He then lets Marco know that the people were wearing suits of roamer skin, and that he is not crazy.

Life And Death

Marco, along with most of the Hilltop, witnesses Gregory's hanging and hears Maggie's speech. Later on at the fair, he is shown looking for Ken, unknown to him, he was killed by Alpha and the Whisperers.

No Turning Back

After being informed of Ken's death by Rick, Marco mourns and yells at Rick, calling him a coward and suggests that Maggie should have control over the communities, as she knows how to deal with a threatening situation, ultimately questioning Rick's leadership. He attends the meeting, asking Maggie if she has an opinion on Rick's plan to defeat the Whisperers.

Call To Arms

Marco is seen with the rest of the Militia shooting roamers to practice for the war with the Whisperers. He does well while Vincent almost dies. He returns back to Alexandria. Marco is later shot in the leg by Paul who mistakes him for a Whisperer, as he'd never seen him.

Ken

It can be assumed that Marco and Ken care for each other and are good friends. Marco took care of Ken the best he could when Ken gets injured and becomes ill. When Marco and Ken are overwhelmed by the oncoming horde of zombies, they hide in a ditch waiting for them to pass by. After Marco leaves Ken, he is guilty about leaving his friend and tells the people at the Hilltop to go back and search for him before telling them that he had heard the dead speak. Marco was saddened at the death of his friend.

Rick

"I never thought I'd live to see the day Rick Grimes became a fucking pussy. Maybe It's time for Maggie to take over all the communities. She knows how to take care of a problem."
—Marco to Rick, mocking his leadership.[src]

Marco respected Rick, but when he didn't want to rush into war against the Whisperers, Marco calls him a pussy and suggest that Maggie should take over all the communities. It can be assumed that Marco is onboard with Rick's campaign to challenge the Whisperers.
