On Wednesday afternoon Phoenix Comicon announced via its Twitter and Facebook pages that Danai Gurira, perhaps known best for playing the katana-wielding Michonne in The Walking Dead television series, would not be able to attend the 2013 event as planned.

The convention staff posted the following message on both of their social media pages (albeit Twitter’s was a bit more concise):

“Unfortunately Danai Gurira is unable to attend Phoenix Comicon this year. Individual Photo ops will be refunded to any who have already purchased. Thank you for your understanding.”

Nerdvana has reached out to the Phoenix Comicon staff for more information regarding the now nixed appearance. PCC’s marketing officials commented that they did not have any additional details regarding Gurira’s absence, but did confirm that it was official.
