Telltale's The Walking Dead is about to get expanded with a new miniseries focussing on the character of Michonne

Whether in comic book or TV show form, Michonne is undoubtedly one of the best things about The Walking Dead. She's a kick ass character and she has two zombies on leashes which she keeps around for crap and giggles.

Now, she's getting the attention she deserves in a three episode mini series from Telltale Games, the folks behind the acclaimed The Walking Dead videogamer series. This new storyline will show us what happened when the character split from Rick Grimes and the others in Robert Kirkman's comic book between issues 126 and 139. It's an incredible insight into previously unknown material as why find out why she left and what brought her back.

The first episode is called 'In Too Deep' and sees Michonne (voiced Samira Wiley -Poussey in Orange is the New Black) join up with Pete and the rest on a ship called The Companion. They'll face new threats together, some of which will no doubt require the finesse of a samurai sword or two.

Episode two will follow in March with the finale coming in April 2016. The three episode series will cost €14.99 and is coming to PC, PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Android and iOS. The release date is the 23rd of February.
