Dakota North by Michael Lark

The return of Dakota North to the Marvel Universe was a pleasant surprise in Ed Brubaker and Michael Lark's amazing run on Daredevil.  Brubaker wrote the character perfectly and included a number of great references to Dakota's 1980s origins, including her time as a model showcased with a series of magazine covers hung on her office walls in Daredevil #108 (June 2008). When I got on Michael Lark's commission list in November 2012, I asked him to recreate the two Vogue covers from that issue along with a sketch of Dakota in her signature outfit with black leather pants and a white tank top. The results are great as you'll see below.

  1. Michael Lark did such a great job on this Dakota North commission, so I'm glad to see that so many other people liked the pieces. Of note, they have been featured in Marvel Comics of the 1980s and Comic Alliance's Best Art Ever (This Week) - 12.07.12.
