The Road Ahead (Volume 1)
Howard first appeared with Donald's unit, Misfit-2 in Fairhaven. He escaped with the rest of the unit when they made their exit from the skyscraper.
Howard accompanied Hector and Franklin when they moved to the buses to check for any survivors, he and Hector lead infected away from the rest-stop as Franklin moved in to save Samantha.
Howard later made the trip with Franklin, who abandoned his post and Jason to retrieve medicine for Donny's injured leg. They retrieved the medicine after Howard made a racial comment towards Franklin about knowing how to pick locks.
After the infected invaded the school, Howard was overwhelmed in the hallways while protecting Shirley and many other civilians. He fought them off for as long as he could before his throat was ripped out and he was forced to the ground by the hordes and devoured.
His near completely devoured remains were later found by Franklin who sorrowfully recovered his tags.
When the high school was overrun by infected, Howard helped defend Shirley and the rest of the survivors. He tried to hold them off with only his crowbar, having run out of ammo prior. Howard was eventually overwhelmed by the infected, his throat was ripped out and he was forced to the ground. He was carried off by the infected and devoured. Later, his completely devoured remains were found by Franklin.
