"That's it--I'm cutting out my tongue! I'm doing it! I'm gonna do it now before it spreads! I ain't going to be no deadie!"
—Albert complaining after finding out Dale was infected.[src]

Albert is a character and an antagonist first encountered in Issue 63 of Image Comics' The Walking Dead. He is a member of the Hunters.

Pre-Apocalypse

Location Unknown

Not much is known about Albert's life prior to or as the outbreak began, except that he possibly had children.

Post-Apocalypse

Fear The Hunters

Albert was one of six cannibalistic survivors who stalked and preyed upon other living humans, namely the weak or isolated, for sustenance. Not much of his personality was revealed, only that he, like the others, listened to and obeyed the group's leader, Chris.

Like his peers, Albert had initially become a cannibal due to the circumstances of the new world and the scarcity of food; however, the extent of how much he agreed with his group's actions is unknown. Chris had revealed to Rick that they had eaten their own children to survive, and it is unknown if Albert had any children that was part of the re-telling.

Albert was one of the more vocal members of the Hunters when it was discovered that Dale had been bitten after they consumed part of his leg; he believed he had to cut his tongue out to prevent reanimation, but, he was stopped by David.

Albert seemed to one of the more active Hunters, having been one of the three who stalked Rick's group. He was also the Hunter responsible for shooting Glenn in the leg when he, Charlie, and Greg had used the mutilated Dale as bait to draw out the other survivors.

His decision consequently cost his group their lives, as the Hunters realized when Rick and his survivors, who had left the church, ambushed the Hunters in their own home.

In the end, Albert and the other Hunters were mutilated and beaten to death by Rick and the others to avenge what they had done to Dale and all of their previous victims. Then, his body was later burned, along with the rest of his group.
