E3 2015 – Walking Dead: Michonne Miniseries Announced

michonne

In a move that should give game critics something to celebrate, Telltale games revealed today at E3 that they will be spearheading a Walking Dead spinoff whose lead is not only a woman – but a woman of color. Michonne will be a centric figure in her very own spinoff from the Walking Dead series focused on her individual story between issues #126 and #139 in the popular. You’re very likely to see familiar faces pop up in the miniseries cast – Michonne’s journey from leaving the group to eventually rejoining them is rumored to play a heavy part in this project.

In a genre repeatedly criticized for its blind eye to heroines- especially women of color heroines- a Michonne centric miniseries focusing on her struggles, hopes, and motivations is a great move in a new direction for our community!
