Black). Haunted by her past, and coping with unimaginable loss and regret, the
story explores Michonne's absence between issues #126 and #139 of the comic
book. Over the three episodes of the miniseries, players will discover what took
Michonne away from Rick, Ezekiel, and the rest of her trusted group... and what
brought her back.

the series allowing fans to experience the first five minutes of the premiere
episode, exploring Michonne's struggle to remain among the living while being
haunted by her past.
