- "I AIN'T GOIN' BACK! I'LL DIE FIRST!"
- —Reggie to Shane and Rick about going back to prison.[src]
Reggie is a character and an antagonist first encountered in Issue 1 of Image Comics' The Walking Dead. He is the criminal who shot Rick Grimes and placed him in a coma. He served as the secondary antagonist of Volume 1: Days Gone Bye.
Reggie was an escaped convict from a prison in Grant County. Shane and Rick Grimes encountered him when they were called to action. Reggie stated that he would die before returning to Grant County's prison. After Rick explained to Shane that they were taking cover behind the police cruiser like, "sitting ducks", Rick ran off to attempt flanking and cornering the criminal. After he bolted from cover, Reggie shot Shane in the hand, preventing him from giving cover fire, before shooting Rick in the chest, effectively forcing him into a coma.
It's unknown what happened to Reggie after he shot Rick, though the fact he somehow made it to Atlanta suggests he was able to escape before Rick and Shane's backup arrived. During the early days of the outbreak, Reggie died due to unknown causes and subsequently reanimated as a zombie.
Sometime later as a zombie he attacks the Atlanta camp and bites Amy. He is then quickly shot and killed by Shane.

- Reggie was one of many characters to have their name confirmed by a source other than the comic itself, others being Charlie, Gavin, Marco, Craig, Andy, Liam, Carlos, Patrick and Sandra.
- Since the supposed name of the criminal was only given in the Miniatures Games, and the Miniatures Games are not set in the same continuity of the comics, it is unknown if that name is canon or not.
