- —Sherry to Rick.[src]
Sherry is a character and an antagonist first encountered in Issue 105 of Image Comics' The Walking Dead. She is one of the original members of The Saviors, and the ex-wife of Dwight before marrying Negan. During the war with the Whisperers, Sherry takes charge of her group and they plot to take over Alexandria. She serves as the secondary antagonist of Volume 27: The Whisperer War, and the primary antagonist of Volume 28.
On her initial introduction, Sherry is shown to be a weary yet kind-hearted individual, looking out for her friends (such as Amber and Mark) and trying her best to maintain the peace. She also appeared to be invested in the emotional well-being of those around her, as seen when she comforted Mark over Amber's disappearance.
Following the end of the war between the joint communities and the Saviors, however, evidence of Sherry's demeanor taking a darker turn is gradually presented; examples include her leaving Dwight for someone else, her choosing the luxury provided by Negan over Dwight, and her disbanding the Saviors' alliance with Alexandria following Dwight's departure from the Sanctuary. Her apparent true personality is revealed in Issue 161, when she expresses her intentions to assume control of Alexandria following the end of the war against the Whisperers.
Nothing is known about Sherry's life before or as the outbreak began apart from that Sherry was married to Dwight.
Sherry is introduced to Negan by Dwight. She intially distrusts him but gradually warms up to him, as evidenced by her flirting with Negan.
Hardly anything is known about Sherry, it is unknown how she met up with The Saviors. She agrees to become one of Negan's wives, thinking that it would make life easier for herself and her husband, Dwight. However, she underestimated how much she would miss him after the separation, causing Dwight to sustain his facial wound from the iron. She is a friend of Amber, and tries to help her as Negan is mad at Amber. She is seen also in the area where Mark is being tortured. She attempts to talk to Dwight, but, is angrily rebuffed by him.
Sherry is mentioned by Dwight, who he reveals is with another man, and is happier with him. She is also seen talking to Mark about his theory that Amber has gone off with a different man.
When Vincent arrived at the Sanctuary looking for aid to fight the Whisperers, Sherry refused to send help. Sherry asked Tara to go and find Vincent before he makes it back to Alexandria. Later in the Volume, Negan teases Dwight, revealing Sherry was always an opportunist. Negan's assumption is proven to be quite right, as she reveals to Tara that when Rick has dealt with the Whisperer's, they will take out Alexandria and take over.
Sherry, John, and other Saviors arrive at the outskirts of Alexandria while it is overrun. They wait for the herd to thin out, before going. While fighting a bunch of walkers, Dwight, Heath and Laura were taken captive by her order and she confronts Rick and demands to leave the network he build with the other communities. She and Rick have a talk in the hall where she threatens him. The meeting later escalated into a fight with her almost choking Rick to death, but she got kicked away by Rick, killing her by breaking her neck on a table.
