Talltale and Skybound is set to deliver the background story of Michonne, the iconic character from Image Comics’ The Walking Dead comic book series with The Walking Dead: Michonne – A Telltale Games Mini-Series.
The story will “explores her untold journey during the time between issues #126 and #139.” The mini series will span three episodes and allowing players to “discover what took Michonne away from Rick, Ezekiel, and the rest of her trusted group… and what brought her back.”
“In many ways, Michonne herself is a reflection of the world of The Walking Dead. She is brutal and cold on the outside, but deep beneath what is broken, she remains hopeful, trying to claw her way out of the darkness that surrounds her,” said Robert Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead. “In our effort to bring the world of the comic and the world of the Telltale series closer together, there is no greater character than Michonne to help bridge that gap.”
“Michonne’s complexity and range make her an ideal lead for the compelling interactive drama fans have come to expect from Telltale,” said Kevin Bruner, Co-Founder and CEO of Telltale Games. “With this mini-series, players will experience Michonne’s challenges first-hand, and the choices they make will shape her journey. We’re incredibly honored by Robert for the opportunity to share this untold story in The Walking Dead universe.”
