Michonne unleashed!

May 24th, 2012 by Jay 1 Comment

Michonne made her first brief, shadowy appearance in The Walking Dead‘s second season finale, with word following shortly after that she’d be played in season three by Treme‘s Danai Gurira. Courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, we have the first look of Gurira in character, looking rather closely to how she’s appeared in the Walking Dead comic book series — though Robert Kirkman says to expect some changes.

“The essence of the character — her personality, her motives, everything that makes Michonne Michonne — remains intact from the comics,” Kirkman told EW. “But like a lot of things on the show, there will be little tweaks and differences here and there. We saw that her introduction is slightly different from how it was in the comic, and her interaction with Andrea is really going to be a really cool addition to the character that I think will get television viewers up to speed, and they’ll get to know her a lot faster than comic book readers did.”

We’ll have to wait until season three to see just how the TV version of Michonne compares to the comic-book one – I think that she’ll do just fine!

Jay says that he is a writer, martial artist, sketcher, and dreamer but mostly just a husband and father. Since getting married to the wonderful and patient woman of his dreams, and becoming a father (of two young boys), he has fallen into the category of 'lapsed nerd' as he is a former RPer, Live Role-Player, and comic book junkie. Science fiction and fantasy books are the staple of his shelves - both in terms of books and movies ... however, he's never seen Star Wars (any of them) but please don't hold that against him! He is currently trying to find a medical cure for the thing called sleep, as it is interferring with the thing he calls life. If you want to know more about him go to
