has debuted the first picture of Danai Gurira as Michonne on the AMC show The Walking Dead
. In the Image comic book series by Robert Kirkman, the fan-favorite character is a former lawyer best known for her skill with a katana. Initially teased at the end of the season 2 finale

that the character would "have some other traits about her that are not in the comic book," we can only assume that she will retain her primary characteristic: being an amazing badass.
