Exclusive Panel from The Walking Dead's Michonne's Origin Story Running in the April Issue of Playboy
Playboy Magazine and Robert Kirkman, writer of the comic and TV show The Walking Dead, have teamed up to introduce the origins of fan favorite Michonne in the April issue of Playboy, and we have an exclusive look at the first panel.
Illustrated by Charlie Adlard, artist for Skybound/Image’s The Walking Dead, the story (on newsstands and on i.Playboy.com Friday, March 16th) features brilliant art to accompany the never-before-seen mystery that explores how the iconic and sexy Michonne discovered her impressive skills as a master swordswoman and became the most admired and beloved survivor.
“It's an honor to be a part of a historic publication like Playboy,” said Kirkman, “I'm thrilled to share The Walking Dead with the magazine’s readers, especially such an important story like the origin of Michonne.”
"The Walking Dead" television show is basic cable’s highest rated original drama of all time. The Season Two finale airs Sunday, March 18th, at 9:00 PM ET on AMC. The character of Michonne is the most highly anticipated addition to the series in the future.
“I pitched The Walking Dead as the zombie movie that never ends, the sequel to virtually every zombie movie ever made, because I never liked the endings,” Kirkman explained. “I always wondered, ‘What do those people do next?’ I wanted to see them foraging for food, building a house, and keeping their children safe. Basically, I came up with a survival drama about what happens to people in an extreme situation. A good survival story is applicable to practically anything. It could be a natural disaster or a nuclear war. It just so happens that, in this case, it’s a world overrun by zombies.”
