"Your dad really sleeps here? Well, he's like the boss of the whole world, isn't he? Can I see his room?"
—Josh to Carl about Rick.[src]

Josh is a character first encountered in Issue 70 of Image Comics' The Walking Dead. He is a young resident that lives within the Alexandria Safe-Zone alongside his parents and grandmother.

Pre-Apocalypse

Location Unknown

Nothing is known about Josh's life before 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 before the outbreak. 

Post-Apocalypse

Life Among Them

This boy has been seen playing with Carl Grimes, Sophia, and Mikey. He is also seen talking to Rick Grimes

No Way Out

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.

A New Beginning

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. 

Life And Death

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.

Death

Killed By

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.

After finding the border, his zombified head is put down by Carl.

Relationships

Carl Grimes

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.
