Note: This is not actually Judas’ first appearance in the comic.
And because I’ve already had a question regarding characters’ ethnicities in this comic (which I guess is the trouble in doing it in stark black and white): I’ve never tried to draw special attention to ethnicity/race, but a good rule of thumb is to consider where the character hails from in the original religious material or mythology, and you can probably figure it out from there. Jesus (and Judas here), for example, would likely be Middle Eastern in origin.
Just wanted to clear that up.
