|This article is about Carl's friend. You may be looking for the former Whisperer or the Here's Negan character.|
Nothing is known about Josh's life prior to or as the outbreak began except that he had a father, mother and a grandmother. It is possible that Josh lived in or near Alexandria.
In Issue 80, he attends the community's meeting and listening to Rick's instructions on keeping safe from the undead hordes at the gates.
This boy's name is finally revealed to be Josh and is good friends with Carl. Josh and Carl make a deal to trade a hooded sweatshirt for a wood sculpture that Josh would give to Wendy. Before Carl leaves for the Hilltop, he makes sure to give Josh his wood sculpture. Josh is upset that he doesn't have Carl's sweatshirt to give to him, but Carl says that he will collect it on his return visit.
Josh was somehow lured outside of the fair in the Alexandria Safe-Zone by a disguised Alpha, and was later decapitated by her along with 11 other victims.
- Killed By
- Alpha (Alive, Off-Panel)
In order to mark a border between the land belonging to the Whisperers and the communities, Alpha disguises herself and infiltrates the fair to lure people off the fairgrounds. Afterward, she decapitates them and then places their heads on wooden pikes to mark the border, with Josh being among them.
- Carl Grimes (Zombified)
After finding the border, his zombified head is put down by Carl.
It can be assumed that Josh and Carl are fairly good friends as Carl took Josh to his room and showed him some of his wood sculptures. Carl was also willing to trade Josh a unicorn sculpture for a hooded sweatshirt made by his mother. Carl cried when he saw Josh's zombified head.
