Earl Sutton is a character first encountered in Issue 95 of Image Comics' The Walking Dead and is a resident living in the Hilltop Colony, who also created weapons for the colony's survivors. He is the blacksmith.
Nothing is known about Earl's life before or as the outbreak began, it is possible he was a blacksmith, as this is his profession at the Hilltop Colony.
At some point during the outbreak, he joined the Hilltop Colony where he began to create spears and other types of weapons for the guards, such as Kal and Eduardo, being the blacksmith of the Hilltop. He is later tasked by Maggie to make her a personal knife, to which he accepts and begins work on his new project.

Paul and Earl seem to be on the same grounds with each other and overall friends, though the usage of Paul's nickname seems to offend him. They both work with each other and are ready for the war with The Saviors.
Gregory is shown to be least liked by Earl; questioning his leadership, his role, and his motives. Though he has some respect for the man for running the Hilltop, he is somewhat displeased with his actions.
Earl seemed friendly towards Maggie and was happily willing to make her a custom knife, he was also very charming towards her, kissing her hand.
