Yeah... And I'm still here. Aren't I? Listen to me, Maggie... Really, stop and listen to me. Look in my eyes, you'll see that what I'm telling you is one-hundred percent true. C'mon. You don't need to hide anything from me. I love you. I love you. Not that flirty girl I met at the farm house... Not that sex machine I lived with at the prison... You. Every flaw, every quirk... I love everything about you-- Everything that makes you... You. I love you, Maggie.
―Glenn to Maggie Greene.[src]

Glenn Rhee is a survivor of the outbreak in Skybound Entertainment's Comic Universe. He is a main character in Image Comics' The Walking Dead and a minor character in The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series and Thomas Dunne Books' The Walking Dead. He is a member of the original Atlanta survivor group, and a skilled supply runner. After leaving Atlanta, he met Maggie Greene and eventually married her, and later had a son named Hershel. The couple also adopted Sophia after her mother's death. He is also a trusted close friend of Rick Grimes.

Glenn is the primary supply runner for the group for the time he is with them, from Atlanta up to the Alexandria Safe-Zone.

After the emergence of a new threat from an enemy group who call themselves the Saviors, Glenn planned to move to Hilltop Colony to start a new life there with Maggie, Sophia and the baby so they would be safe. However, along the way they were captured by the Saviors and their leader Negan. Where he ultimately met his end at the hands of Negan. After Glenn's death, Maggie always remembered what they went through together.


Glenn is described as clever, optimistic and resourceful. Compared to Lilly and Larry who are more cold and untrusting, Glenn is much more kind and civil. He is shown to be selfless when he and Carley go out to rescue Lee's group from walkers, later stating he'd go out there again if he had to. Glenn is also quite brave, volunteering to go on a supply run. Later, Glenn's humanity comes in again when he finds a female survivor and goes to rescue her despite the danger. However, he sometimes doesn't think before he speaks, such as asking Irene if she has a boyfriend when she is dying of a walker bite. After making it out of the drug store, Glenn decides to head to Atlanta on his own to find his friends.

From his introduction, Glenn had proven over the course of the series his importance to the group's survival. His initiative to put himself in danger in Atlanta to get supplies was a vital necessity for the group. His jack-of-all-trades knowledge had proven useful several times, such as being able to hot-wire a car and siphon gas. His youth and somewhat natural positive, humorous attitude frequently kept the survivor group's spirits up, and his loyalty to Rick Grimes and the group made him one of Rick's closest and dependable allies. He was shown always willing to do what was necessary to keep everyone together; even if it put himself in danger.

Glenn had more obvious weaknesses despite his strengths. He often displayed a tendency to act before thinking, such as when he risked his life carelessly to confront the obviously hostile Bruce who knew who he was, and when he crashed the car into the prison in panic, endangering himself and everyone to save Maggie Greene. His tendency to panic was also highlighted when under extreme pressure, such as when the Governor captured the trio and beat him down without any resistance. He was disabled by pure shock and fear, and only snapped out of it once Caesar Martinez saved him.

Glenn was also not as physically able or as emotionally hardened as other members of his group, and often left the situations which needed violence, such as killing off the Hunters and the Scavengers, to other members of the group. He notably never killed another living human in the series.

His athleticism and agility was utilized throughout the series, and when the group began living in the Alexandria Safe-Zone, Glenn became an ideal and effective supply runner because of these traits.

Overall, Glenn's knowledge in wiring vehicles, his speed and general usefulness enabled him to survive the countless dangers of the undead, the Woodbury psychopaths and the almost lethal gunshot wounds from both Bruce and the Hunters, but, his eventual fate was ultimately out of his hands.


Macon, Georgia[]

Before the outbreak, Glenn was born and raised in Macon, Georgia in 1981. Glenn was a pizza delivery boy in massive debt. He had several payments for his car and his apartment burdening him, as well as a severed relationship with his parents. Several questionable skills such as being able to hot-wire a car were acquired in his college years. He was forced to steal cars with friends to make a living, although he also admits he enjoyed the experience.

Glenn revealed his financial trouble eventually became so extreme, he almost lost everything. He begrudgingly told his fellow survivors that this problem would have forced him to crawl back to his estranged parents for help. His hopes for anything to get him out of it came true, in a way, when the dead began to rise.


Season One[]

"A New Day"[]

Glenn appeared in the first episode with Carley, Doug, Lilly and Larry at Lee's family's pharmacy, Everett Pharmacy Drugstore. He volunteered to go on a supply run, but got pinned down by walkers at a local motel while trying to save a trapped survivor. He hid in an icebox until Lee and Carley came to rescue him, at which point he helped them kill the walkers and rescue the survivor, who committed suicide due to being bitten.

When the group return to the drugstore, Glenn will scorn Lee for his choice regardless of whether he gave Irene the gun or not. After some time, the group prepares to leave, with Glenn assisting in barricading the door until he is called away by Katjaa to help them. The group soon rendezvous at the motor inn.

At the end of the episode, Glenn is seen listening to a radio broadcast on how bad the situation is in various cities, deciding it is best for him to return to Atlanta to look for his friends. He once again questions Lee's decision regarding Irene's suicide before departing. As he left in his pizza delivery car, he accidentally took Clementine's last working walkie-talkie.

Days Gone Bye[]

Glenn made it to Atlanta and joined the survivor group living on the outer limits of the city. He was the fourth survivor present to establish the camp. His importance to the group arose when he willingly served as their primary supply source by frequently venturing into the city. He scavenged essential supplies despite the extreme danger to him. He displayed a vital skill in his quick adaptation of evading and fighting off zombies while finding the needed items. On one of his outings, he managed to rescue and befriend an overwhelmed and alone Rick Grimes. Glenn informed Rick of the latest details concerning the United States government's collapse, before escorting him back to the camp.

Glenn's selfless risks to obtain supplies and his rescue of Rick gained the latter's respect and admiration. This eventually culminated in Rick requesting Glenn's assistance to venture deeper into Atlanta to recover much needed weapon supplies for the group. He expressed concern once Jim told him the location of the gun store, but, he, along with Rick, covered themselves in zombie gore to avoid being detected and eaten by the masses. The pair successfully made it out of the city with the firearms.

Miles Behind Us[]

Glenn was frequently side-lined, due to everyone else pairing up and displayed regret at not confiding in Carol earlier. When the survivors later join up at the Greene family farm, Glenn sparked interest in Hershel Greene's daughter Maggie, a romantic attraction much closer to his age. The pair had shaky experiences in between the deaths of Maggie's younger and older siblings and Glenn's frequent near death experiences while helping clearing the zombies, but, have remained together as the longest survivor couple of the series.

After being caught in bed with Maggie, Glenn, and Hershel have a brief argument. Despite the rocky start, Hershel understood he could not stop his daughter from wanting to be with Glenn, and while the majority of the survivors were kicked out by him, Hershel accepted Glenn's decision to stay with Maggie.

Safety Behind Bars[]

Glenn was not present with the group at their initial arrival at the prison, and Andrea expressed longing to have him back again.

When it was clear to the group the penitentiary would make for the safest shelter possible, Rick decided to travel back to Hershel's Farm to offer the remaining survivors a spot with them there. Glenn was shown helping the men burn the attacking zombies, and was clearly glad to see Rick and seemed supportive upon hearing his proposition. Once settling down with Maggie at the prison, his important role within the group shifted from gathering supplies to siphoning gas. He regularly went outside the penitentiary walls for fuel in the parked vehicles. He was also responsible for finding the Atlanta prison's riot gear and weapons, helping the previously ill-equipped survivors greatly with his discovery.

The Heart's Desire[]

Glenn tests a new idea of how to clear roamers on the fence, by attaching knifes to plywood so its easier to retrieve them after stabbing a roamer.

Glenn moves into the same cell as Maggie. Later on, Hershel gives Maggie permission to be in a relationship with Glenn. Glenn and Maggie try to stop Tyreese and Rick from fighting, to no avail.

The Best Defense[]

Glenn's importance resurfaced when he, along with Michonne and Rick, became part of the initial scouting group to find survivors of a crashed helicopter, and subsequently Woodbury. Jacking one of the parked cars, he drove the pair to the forest of the crash.

When the trio arrived in Woodbury, Glenn was clearly uncomfortable. When the confrontation with the Governor began, Glenn was frozen. Even though he was well protected by the riot-gear, he did not fight back in evident fear. He was perceived as the lowest risk of the trio by The Governor; this resulted in Glenn being imprisoned within their walls to be later coerced for information. He suffered significant psychological trauma after witnessing The Governor cut off Rick's hand and being forced to listen to The Governor rape Michonne.

This Sorrowful Life[]

Glenn was freed from captivity freed by a seemingly defecting Caesar Martinez and escaped with him, Rick, Michonne, and Alice Warren.

He participated in the retaking of the prison from the invasion of undead when they arrived back. However, Glenn's usual logical and cool attitude was momentarily broken when he first witnessed the prison overrun again. In a fit of panic for Maggie's safety, he drove through the zombies to try and get through, but, ended up crashing the sedan into the wall of the penitentiary, bruising a few ribs. He was ultimately saved by his fellow survivors.

After his near death experience at both Woodbury and in the re-taking of the prison, Glenn realized just how much he loved Maggie and how much he wanted to survive for her. He decided he wanted to truly establish the seriousness of their relationship to the fullest. After searching the zombie corpses and discovering an appropriate ring, he later asked Hershel for his daughter's hand.

The Calm Before[]

Glenn and Maggie are married by Hershel in the Prison cafeteria.

Soon after their marriage, Glenn and Maggie volunteered to be part of the group who traveled to the Army Center to stop the Woodbury enemies from using its fuel for their vehicles and upkeep for their ammo. When the group was confronted by the armed Bruce Cooper and three men, Glenn distracted them long enough for Andrea to snipe Bruce and Michonne to kill the other two. However, he was still shot point blank in the ribs by Bruce. He survived only because he chose to wear the bullet-resistant prison riot gear once more.

Made To Suffer[]

His participation in the later conflict against the Woodbury army was limited, due to his commitment into not putting himself in danger for Maggie's sake. This commitment was nearly broken, after he narrowly avoided a barrage of gunfire while he defended the prison atop one of the front gate sniper towers. When the group divided on the next course of action, Glenn, at the last minute, decided to leave with Dale and Andrea in the RV. This important decision subsequently saved his, Sophia's (who was now under their care), and Maggie's life.

Here We Remain[]

After the loss of the prison and the majority of the survivors, the trio stayed at Hershel's Farm with Dale, Andrea, and the twins. Glenn and Maggie eventually scouted the road on a few horses and discovered the remaining survivors.

Like most of the group, Glenn expressed clear distrust when Abraham Ford, Rosita Espinosa, and Eugene Porter encountered the survivors at Hershel's farm. However, he alongside the majority agreed to travel with them to Washington for Eugene's mission rather than stay at the farm any longer.

What We Become[]

On the road, Maggie's attempted suicide served to severely test his emotional well-being. Glenn clashed with Abraham when discovering her hanged up, and refused to let Abraham kill her until they knew she was dead. Glenn broke down in tears, and subsequently into anger at Abraham when the group realized she was still alive.

Despite the awkward aftermath, the pair came to a mutual understanding, and made a conscious effort to remain out of danger. It was clear Glenn's focus was no longer siphoning petrol or gathering supplies solo, but, for caring for Sophia and supporting Maggie in the deaths of her entire family as his most important responsibility.

Fear The Hunters[]

While the survivors stayed in Father Gabriel Stokes's church, Glenn was unfortunately found at the center of conflict again when one of the Hunters, Albert sniped him in the leg while he carried a mutilated Dale to safety. His leg was fortunately patched up by Eugene and Gabriel using a few tea-leaves and hot candle wax. Like the rest of the group, Glenn was pinned down in the church and remained behind while Abraham and the other leaders took care of them. He was unharmed during and in the aftermath, and his leg wound has recovered a few days afterwards.

Life Among Them[]

As with the rest of survivors, Glenn successfully traveled and made it to the Alexandria Safe-Zone.

Glenn was understandably suspicious of the Safe-Zone's community, but, adapted to its customs faster than Rick. Glenn's useful skills and agility made him a suitable candidate for a supply runner, and this was recognized by Douglas Monroe, the leader of the Safe-Zone who appointed him as a replacement for the wounded Scott. While Glenn accepted the role he was given, Maggie was unhappy of the renewed danger and an argument ensued which resulted in Glenn leaving the house for a while.

Too Far Gone[]

Glenn's loyalty to Rick became apparent again when the latter requested him for assistance to covertly steal back their weapons, which Douglas took when they entered the community. Glenn made a bit of a drunken scene at the welcoming party to distract the community's survivors while he scoped the location of the weapons for Rick. Eventually the pair successfully find the armory, and Glenn sneaks in while the construction crews gather weapons and unlocks a window to gain access later. He successfully obtains the weapons and gives them to Rick to distribute amongst the loyal members of their group.

Glenn eventually undergoes his first trip into Washington as a runner alongside Heath. Medical supplies were needed for Scott and the pair headed out to a pharmacy to gather them. The pair ride motorcycles down the abandoned freeway and jump across rooftops to avoid the street-side roamers and undead inhabitants of the buildings. Their progress was hindered for a time when Heath discovered an alleyway he frequently traveled through was full of zombies.

The pair eventually realize the source of the crowds; an unknown survivor group had taken refuge in a nearby building. After warning Heath to not make contact due to his previous experiences with psychopathic survivors, the pair witness the mysterious group sacrifice one of their own to escape. They use this distraction to quickly get into the pharmacy and drive out of the city with the supplies.

No Way Out[]

Glenn, Abraham, and other survivors are seen clearing out walkers outside the walls of Alexandria. After clearing them a large herd starts to come there way. Glenn then has a hard time thinking of Andrea inside the guard tower as everybody is safe inside the walls. He then decides to get a group together and help her. Glenn, Heath, and Douglas's son Spencer go on a mission to bring Andrea supplies in her tower. On the journey, Glenn suggests that they should lure some of the zombies away from the fences. Glenn's group make it to Andrea, but, the fence gives in, and roamers invade the safe zone. Glenn, Andrea, Heath, and Spencer notice the zombies pouring into the town, and Glenn comes to the realization out loud that they are doomed. The town manage to successfully defend themselves and allow Glenn and Andrea to make a safe return.

We Find Ourselves[]

The zombie invasion in Alexandria Safe-Zone has ended. Abraham, Glenn, Spencer Monroe, Aaron and the rest of the residents are cleaning the yard. Abraham states that the process will take forever. Glenn says they have to pile a new fire on. Abraham agrees and tells him to keep it away from the yards. Suddenly, Glenn notices zombified Jessie Anderson. Undead Jessie stands up, and tries to reach Glenn with her hacked arm. Abraham tells Glenn to kill her before Rick sees her. Glenn isn't sure, and Abraham takes out his gun and shoots her.

Glenn and Maggie are finally reunited after Glenn was separated from the town when roamers invaded.. Glenn apologizes for leaving her, but, Maggie understands. She feels bad for anyone they lost, and Glenn says it's survivor's guilt. They hug and Glenn says he loves Maggie.

Glenn and others are taking out a zombie horde. After, Rick tells Glenn to keep an eye on the things, they can get dangerous very fast. Glenn says he's on it. Maggie asks of Rick to not send Glenn out for a supply run, as she has only just been reunited with him and he needs a rest. Glenn asks Rick why he said to Abraham he can't go with. Rick tells him it's Maggie and she wants him to sit this one out. Glenn understands. Rick explains what they're doing, and would feel better if he'd sit this one out. Glenn says he'll 'do a patrol or something'. Rick thanks Glenn.

Nicholas, Olivia, and Spencer (mainly Nicholas) conspire to kill Rick. Glenn hears everything, and Nicholas notes "this shouldn't go down this way". Glenn tries to protect himself from Nicholas with a gun (Glenn had no intention to fire the weapon). Nicholas grabs his weapon and starts to hit him. Olivia tries to stop him, but, Nicholas keeps hitting Glenn. Lastly, he pulls Glenn's gun to his head. Glenn kicks Nicholas in the stomach and is able to escape. He runs to his house and tells Maggie and Sophia to lock themselves into the bathroom. Later, when Nicholas is arguing with Heath, Glenn tells Nicholas not to threaten his family and pulls Maggie's gun to his head, followed by Rick doing the same thing.

A Larger World[]

Glenn, along with Rick, Michonne, Carl, and Andrea, are brought to the Hilltop Colony by Paul Monroe. There, they are shown around and introduced to Gregory, the leader of the community. Another resident of the colony, Ethan, returns from a failed mission where all of his companions were killed except for himself and a woman named Crystal. Ethan then tells Gregory he has a message for him and stabs him. Rick then tackles Ethan to the ground and in the struggle cuts his throat, while the rest of the residents stare at him, shocked. The next day, Glenn tells Rick that the Hilltop is nice, even admitting that he prefers the Hilltop rather than the Alexandria community.

Something To Fear[]

After surviving a brief encounter with some members of the Saviors and returning to the community, he is told by Maggie that she is pregnant, which he is over-joyed to hear. Later Abraham is murdered by Dwight which saddens Glenn. Glenn then helps Eugene through the gates as he escapes from the Saviors. Glenn and others go out and take on walkers coming towards the Alexandria gates. Saddened by Abraham's death, He then tries to convince Maggie that they should move to the Hilltop, saying that it is safer there. After some arguing, Maggie tells Glenn that she'd go wherever he would. Glenn then reveals to the group he decides its best for him, Maggie, and Sophia to move to the hilltop where it's safer to have their baby and start a new life. As Rick's group heads off towards Hilltop to gather Paul and some of the others, Glenn tells Maggie that they'd go and instead of leaving back to Alexandria to fight the Saviors, they would simply stay. While resting for the night, the group is ambushed and captured by the Saviors. Their leader, Negan, lines up the survivors, taunts them and informs them of the 'new world order.' He tells them he will choose one member of the group to kill in retribution for the Saviors that the group had killed. He initially dismisses Glenn, on his insane reasoning of not wanting to be considered racist in his selection of a victim. However, Negan cruelly chooses him after a final random selection. He ignores pleas from Glenn and the others and brutally bludgeons him in front of the survivors with his baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire, which he nicknames "Lucille". Glenn manages to survive the first of Negan's blows. But, it did horrific damage, crushing his skull which caused one of his eyes to pop out. He tries to cry out Maggie's name before he eventually succumbs to another violent strike on the face breaking his jaw and teeth. Glenn dies tragically from severe trauma to the head. Once dead, Negan keeps beating the corpse until there is nothing recognizable left of Glenn. Negan departs with a final warning, leaving the survivors to their grief. After a short scuffle between Rick and Maggie, the group decide to gather up Glenn's remains and continue to the Hilltop to bury him. Maggie decides she will remain at the Hilltop with Sophia and raise her new baby there, as it was Glenn's final wish. Rick makes a promise to Maggie that he will get revenge for Glenn's murder before departing back to Alexandria.


Killed By

While resting for the night, the group is ambushed by the Saviors and they're forced to line up. Their leader, Negan, taunts them and informs them of the 'new world order.' He tells them he will choose one member of the group to kill in retribution for the Saviors that the group, in orders of Rick, had killed.

Negan cruelly chooses Glenn after a final random selection, bashing his head with his baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire, which he nicknames "Lucille", but not before he tries to plead for his life.

Glenn manages to survive the first of Negan's blows, which crushes his skull and causes one of his eyes to pop out. He tries to cry out Maggie's name before he eventually succumbs to another violent strike on the face. Negan then continues beating Glenn until there is nothing recognizable left of him.

The following is a list of some of Glenn's most memorable quotes.

Season One

"I'd go out there again in a second. (…) They've got kids, Lilly."
- Glenn to Lilly after he and Carley ran out to save Lee and the group, "A New Day"

"I'm starting to think this drugstore isn't a permanent solution. (…) We need as much gas as possible so we can all get out of downtown Macon. Fast. (…) Then I'll head out and get gas. There's a motel not too far from here, out towards the end of Peachtree. I'll work my way towards it and then loop back, siphoning what I can."
- Glenn volunteering to go get gas, "A New Day"

"Alright, silence is consent. That's the plan."
- Glenn if Lee says nothing about his plan (Determinant), "A New Day"

"Hey, there, this is Glenn, and, uh, I'm kinda in a jam here. Uh, little girl, if you're there, can you put your daddy on the phone? Or on the talkie, or whatever? (…) So... I'm down at that motor inn and, well, I--I'm stuck. (…) Yeah, I, uh saw a chance to get some supplies for the group and a bunch of the roaming ones got the jump on me. I'm hiding over here, but they won't leave. (…) Awesome. I'll sit tight 'til then."
- Glenn asking Lee for help as he is trapped at the motor inn, "A New Day"

"Guys! Oh, man, I'm glad you're here. (…) Not yet. There's a survivor trapped up there. (…) Listen. I was out here looking for gas. And then, up there in the corner room, I heard crying coming from inside. (…) It's a girl. We talked and she got frightened. I was trying to get in and help her and she started yelling and saying I was bitten. I tried to convince her I wasn't, and that's when all these guys came out of the forest. A couple almost got me, and I ended up hiding in the ice machine. (…) We can't just leave her. (…) I'm saving her, with or without you."
- Glenn to Lee and Carley about Irene, "A New Day"

"We're a little naked out here, except for Carley's gun, and we can't use that much."
- Glenn to Lee about their weapons (Determinant), "A New Day"

"Let me see the spark plug. The porcelain inside these things turns car windows to tissue paper. (…) That could scramble a brain pretty good."
- Glenn to Lee about the sparky plug, "A New Day"

"You have a boyfriend?"
- Glenn to Irene after finding out she has a boyfriend, "A New Day"

"I deliver pizzas around here. I brought a couple to the Everetts a few times. Sorry, I mean, the folks that owned this place. Just really good people. It sucks seeing this place like this."
- Glenn to Lee about being a pizza delivery boy, "A New Day"

"I think I need to go. (…) Yeah... I got friends there, and I just can't stay here knowing that they could be trapped in that city. (…) I gotta take my chances."
- Glenn to Lee about going to Atlanta, "A New Day"

"Maybe. But I'd rather make the wrong call and know, than make the right call and not."
- Glenn if Lee tells him he's making the wrong call (Determinant), "A New Day"

"Thanks, Lee, that means a lot. I don't mean to abandon you all, but this seems like an okay setup, and I'm sure things will be back to normal around here in no time. (…) You guys be safe."
- Glenn if Lee encourages him to find his friends (Determinant), "A New Day"

"And, Lee, you know, if this doesn't get better, people are going to give up... like the girl from upstairs. Are you just gonna let them? You told Carley to give her the gun. (…) Maybe you were right. I don't know how to handle something like that. Anyway, see ya around."
- Glenn to Lee if he gave Irene the gun (Determinant), "A New Day"

  • It is mentioned in the script book that Glenn is 22 years old.
  • Glenn was originally planned to die in Issue 75, but his death was postponed to Issue 100.
    • Despite this change, Glenn was still killed in the non-canon ending of Issue 75.

    • Up until his death in Issue 100, Glenn had more appearances in the series than every character aside from Rick.
  • Glenn is one of the characters that never killed a living human in the comics.
    • This is a difference from his TV series counterpart who killed several Saviors alongside Heath shortly before his death.
  • Glenn is one of ten characters from the Comic Series who made an appearance in the Telltale Series, the other nine being Hershel Greene, Shawn Greene, Michonne Hawthorne, Mike, Terry, Paul Monroe, Siddiq, Pete, and Elodie Hawthorne.
    • He is one of the three characters to appear in the Comic Series, Telltale Series, and Novel Series. The other two being Hershel and Michonne.

  • Glenn used to steal cars during his college years.
  • Glenn was the first person to be buried in the Hilltop.
  • Glenn is the first named character to be killed by Negan.
  • Glenn is the second person killed on panel by Negan with Lucille, the first being the unnamed rapist in "Here's Negan".
  • Strangely, his surname is never revealed or even mentioned within the series, not even during his wedding and subsequent marriage to Maggie.
    • When Robert Kirkman was asked why Negan doesn't have a surname, he responded with "Yeah, I don't know, I do things to entertain myself that, then when the comic gets turned into a TV show, it's super weird. But I just think it's funny to not give characters last names because, I don't know, it's interesting to me. It really doesn't play well on panels though, I'll tell you that much. But when I'm at home and I'm writing, I'm like, 'I'm not doing this,' because you gotta come up with a list of names and then pick one and it's never interesting." This may explain why Glenn is never given a surname that is passed onto Maggie in the comics.
    • Glenn's last name was official given as Rhee, the same as his TV Series counterpart, in promotional images from both The Walking Dead: Road to Survival and The Walking Dead: Match 3 Tales.[2] As well as the official The Walking Dead Twitter account, where his wife Maggie was referred to as "Maggie Rhee".[3]
  • Glenn and Shane are the only survivors of the Atlanta survivor camp whose relatives are unknown.
  • Glenn is one of the seven main characters of the Comic Series who did not kill a living person on-screen directly/caused on panel. The others being Morgan Jones, Lori Grimes, Sophia Grimes, Dale, Juanita Sanchez, and Mercer.

  • Glenn was seen driving a car with an "Ace Pizza" delivery sign on top of the car. This is most likely the car he used to deliver pizzas prior to the apocalypse.
    • He will mention his pizza delivery job if Lee talks to him at the drugstore and asks "What's your story?".
  • Glenn's red T-shirt features a logo of an underground hip-hop collective called Hieroglyphics.
  • Glenn reveals in-game that he was born and raised in Macon, Georgia, though he has family and relatives in Atlanta.
  • He is not mentioned in the character statistics at the end of "No Time Left" along with Charles, Molly and Mark, although he was a member of the group.
    • This could be because there were no decisions that could change the character's view on Lee.
    • However, his interaction with Lee before leaving does affect conversation between Lee and Kenny on the topic of leaving the motel.
  • Through Telltale's involvement in 7 Days to Die, Glenn is available as one of the ten Walking Dead character skins, along with Lee, Michonne, Christa, Pete, Luke, Kenny, Carley, Lilly and Molly.[4]
  • Glenn has a similar appearance to character Short Round from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, even sharing a similar looking hat.
