Schreck No. Daryl is not in the comic book series and, last I heard, Robert Kirkman has no plans to put him in either. To the best of my knowledge, Meryl and Daryl were characters created specially for the T.V. series and were created by Frank Darabont who was the executive producer of the first season. TV shows do not always use all the existing characters from the source material and in a lot of cases create their own as well like Meryl and Daryl.
