I’ll admit that my intro to The Walking Dead came with the AMC TV series, and not with the comic book series it’s based on, so I’m not as intimately familiar with each character’s involvement in the source material, and how that’s changed (or not changed) in the translation to the TV series.
But, from all the excitement that accompanied news that Michonne was going to be introduced to the series, last spring 2012, I was under the impression that the character would be far more involved, and would have more to do than she’s been given thus far, into the TV series. Some fans seem both happy for Danai Gurira, but disappointed in how the character she plays is used.
So I look to those of you who have been fans of the series, before the AMC pickup, to chime in on whether you agree with the laments of others, or if you feel she’s in line with your expectations based on what you read in the comic book series.
