We know readers have been waiting to get a better look at Michonne since the season 2 finale and thankfully we didn't have to wait for Comic-Con to get it. Here is the first photo of Danai Gurira as Michonne in The Walking Dead Season 3:

Via EW: In the comics, Michonne is an unflinching warrior who proves to be powerful ally for Rick Grimes and the rest of the survivors. But how different will the onscreen version be? “The essence of the character — her personality, her motives, everything that makes Michonne Michonne — remains intact from the comics,” says Robert Kirkman (the creator of the comic and executive producer of the TV adaptation). “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.”

The Walking Dead Season 3 started filming earlier this month and the first episode will premiere in October. To catch up on all of our recent Season 3 coverage, visit the following articles:
