Michonnes gory Walking Dead backstory revealed in the latest issue of Playboy
Stoic, sword-wielding Michonne is one of the greatest characters in The Walking Dead comic series, but before the zombie apocalypse, she was an ordinary lawyer who used swords for fencing rather than chopping off limbs. The new issue of Playboy features a six-page comic that reveals the precise moment Michonne became a badass. Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard made the short comic "Michonne's Story" for the April 2012 issue of Playboy, which just came out yesterday. It's a quick trip down memory lane with a very different Michonne, one who panics at the sight of walkers, but we get the highlights: how Michonne gets her katana, the fate of her boyfriend and her friend, and the gruesome decision she makes to survive. It's hardly a must-read. It doesn't offer much insight into Michonne's character and doesn't reveal much we don't already know, but if you're a huge Michonne fan, it's worth a gander.
The Hollywood Reporter has the first two pages of the comic, so you can decide if it's worth heading to your local purveyor of dirty magazines and assuring the clerk that you're only buying it for the comics.
And ... apologies for the multiple video clip posts.
Daryl is my favorite.
I posted in a similar thread that contract negotiations much have been rough, because they eliminated several main and recurring characters.
The Rick v Shane last week was a real shocker.
Shane and Dale were the only character killed that had any actual dialog this season. Slaughtering characters is a big part of what makes the comics good, nobody is safe, even Rick and Carl have been seriously wounded though still not killed.
Yep! When Zompoc Finally gets here I wanna be on Darryl's Team!
I'll make sure he has plenty of Crossbow Bolts! And I'll have his back using my Compound Bow and Trusty Custom Made Sword (Yes, I really have one and it is razor sharp and made by a guy who has made custom swords for nearly 40 years! Definitely not a toy!)
I also want Andrea on my team cuz in the Comic Book she becomes Bad Ass with a rifle!
And of Course Michonne as well cuz not only is she "hardcore" but she has style!
Daryl is the only one with any brains and/or common sense.
Lori (or as some refer to her, “Whori”), and her obnoxious brat “Carl”, should be used as walker bait.
It looks like season 3 is going to take place in “Racoon City”, with this “Michonne” character (supposedly pronounced “Me-shawn”) in the role of “Alice”.
(For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about, research “Resident Evil”.)
IMO AMC ruined it when they canned Darabont, & cut the budget in half.
On a Phoenix to Israel flight, I watched two seasons (less last night’s show) on my iPad.
Interesting that the two strong females (the blond, who becomes quite the sniper I understand) and this new black lady are (were) lawyers.
Concur that Lori should be dead.
I saw Shane’s death coming for a while.
The redneck is the best character, followed by Glenn; I would have preferred no “Nazi SS” stuff on his bike, but that’s part of who he is, I suppose.
Remain curious what the doctor told the Sherriff — I suppose he told them everyone was infected and would “rise” or become zombies upon becoming immuno-compromised.
My weapon of choice for a zombie apoloypse: the lowly Ruger 10/22 rifle, with a massive bannana clip.
Ammo would be plentiful and light.
He is going to be working on some type of film noir type tv show about LA cops and "Shane" is supposed to be in it as one of the cops.
Actually that is not his Bike. It was his brothers who was/is a hard core racist. I think Darryl is lot more reasonable as far as race and stuff goes (seems so anyway) He saved T-Dog by killing Walker then covered him with it when the herd of Walkers caught them out in the open on the Highway.
She was already a Zombie.....
