"You are not really buying into this are you? You think these people are actually what they claim to be? No way."
—Luke to Magna.[src]

Luke is a character first encountered in Issue 127 of Image Comics' The Walking Dead. He is a member of a small group of six people led by Magna trying to survive in the Washington D.C., area.


Nothing is known about Luke's life prior to or as the outbreak began.


A New Beginning

Luke is travelling with Magna and the rest of their group through Washington, D.C. when they are found by Jesus. Jesus escorts the group back to Alexandria to be interviewed by Rick Grimes. During the meeting, Luke tells Rick that Magna is their leader, and the reason they have made it so far.

Along with the rest of his group, Luke is interviewed by Andrea and later on debates about the group's next move against Alexandria. 

Luke later on goes with Kelly and Magna into Alexandria's jail where he sees Negan who grabs onto the bars of the cell, asking if they're there to save him from the people of Alexandria, saying that they're "animals." Magna quickly sees through his act, however, and they leave.

Luke is with Magna when they sneak into Andrea's house and demand answers about the community.

Whispers Into Screams

Luke is present when Andrea is explaining her group's history. As she leaves to get coffee, Luke asks for two cups.


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 Luke being among them.

After finding the border, his zombified head is put down by either Carl, Andrea, Dante, or Lydia.

Luke is shown to be very supportive of Magna being the leader of their group. This is shown in their initial meeting with Rick when he confirms that they all see her as their leader.

Later, a subtle hint is made that he might have a crush on Magna. When Magna admits that she doesn't have an eye for figuring out people's relationships, he mumbles under his breath, 'Tell me about it.' with a disappointed expression. This is further hinted when Yumiko tells Magna that Luke is probably crying into his pillow because she refuses to have sex with him.

Saddened and furious by Luke's death, Magna joins Rick's Militia against the Whisperers.


Luke and Andrea had a rough relationship. This is shown when Magna and her group, including Luke, attacked Andrea as she enters her home. Their relationship seems to have stabilized since Andrea's exposition.

  • Theory Magna's group has ties with the new frontier.

    • Interesting. I know that they've had plenty of comic source material to work with, but I'm a little surprised that they haven...
    • I'd imagine it's to avoid any conflicts of story, and Kirkman being more interested in having the story for the comics fit his vision.
