Courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, here's your first look at Michonne, the katana-wielding badass from the upcoming season of AMC's The Walking Dead.

We have earlier covered on the news release on the casting of Michonne, the katana-wielding badass from Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead comic book series, to the TV screen with AMC's critically acclaimed TV series.

Today, we get an official first look at actress Danai Gurira in character as Michonne thanks to this exclusive article from Entertainment Weekly that also featured an interview with original comic creator and executive producer of the TV series, Robert Kirkman himself.

Hit the jump to check out the full image followed by excerpt from the interviews.

On how the TV version of Michonne will be different from its original source:

The essence of the character — her personality, her motives, everything that makes Michonne — remains intact from the comics. But like a lot of things on the show, there will be little tweaks and differences here and there. We saw that her introduction is slightly different from how it was in the comic, and her interaction with Andrea is really going to be a really cool addition to the character that I think will get television viewers up to speed, and they’ll get to know her a lot faster than comic book readers did.

And on how they cast Danai Gurira, a relatively unknown actress, for the fan-favourite role:

"We looked at a lot of talented people that were really fantastic, but we were waiting for that one spark, that moment where everyone was completely in agreement and completely excited, and we felt like we had found the essence of this fictional character that just randomly appeared in another person, and that person was Danai Gurira. She kind of came in and really just blew us all away. She’s got incredible presence, and she’s got a theater background, and is very physical, and was just perfect for the role."
