More On: The Walking Dead: Michonne

TellTale's The Walking Dead: Michonne is out in the wild now with its first episode, In Too Deep. If you're still on the fence about this three-episode miniseries then maybe this visceral launch trailer will change your mind. While TellTale's series follows the comics continuity it doesn't look like Michonne is any less compelling or deadly than she is in the AMC TV show. 

Michonne is one of my favorite characters from the show so I'm really looking forward to playing through this series. After being seriously disappointed by Firewatch and its rapidly evaporating plot--penned by ex-TellTale writers no less--I'm hoping the storytelling masters still at TellTale can satisfy my craving for a real gut-punch tragedy. In Too Deep is available now for $14.99.
