NB of the Week

Daredevil #511
This one may be a bit tricky to see why it was cool but I'll see what I can do
A bit ago, in order to stop the Kingpin from becoming The Hand's new leader, Matt Murdock accepted the role, thinking that with the right leadership, The Hand could become an agent of good. Slowly, Murdock started to become a little darker. Eventually he put a Dojo on top a building, declaring it the Shadowland. Hand ninjas roamed the streets, taking down any kind of crime people were committing, causing most people to fear DD and the streets. As DD became darker and darker, he actually killed Bullseye, sending that panic through the hero-community as well. Turns out DD has been possessed by an ancient spirit and it is coming to rule The Hand again.
As the heroes fight for Murdock's soul in Shadowland, people start rioting in the streets, taking back what they feel it and DD have stolen: Hell's Kitchen. As Murdock and Nelson's business partner, Dakota North, tries to make her way through one of the many "gatherings", a fist flies across her face, knocking her to the ground. Pushing herself up, her head turns to say one thing, "Right" and you know she's ready to throw down too. Which she does. By then beating the snot outta the man who hit her and his friend who tries to join in. To every one's awe, she then just walks away through the crowd who can only stare in disbelief.
It was a quick and small scene, but the art on it was probably the best part. There was literally only seven boxes of art and it was great story-telling. The look on her face as she picks it up was the best. Good for Dakota. It's about time some of these "normals" started acting like they gave a damn and that's why she has earned my coveted NB Of The Week.
