Michonne is one of the most popular characters in The Walking Dead. The first appearances of this master swordsman go for a premium on eBay, andshe's the character that most gets the message boards buzzing. Her upcoming arrival in the Walking Dead TV show is a massive talking point in and of itself. Her origin, when told, was expected to be a big seller, with tradewaiters expected to stop waiting and pick up the monthly issue in question.
But I don't think anyone expected this.
The origin of Michonne will be told by Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard in six pages, and printing in next week's issue of Playboy.
That's right folks, you'll be telling people that you only read it for the comics…
