Most Moving comic for the you?

I think about this alot. What makes a good comic? To me it has to have the main character go through tough times to only realize in the end things will be okay. Often times it usually ends up being a very touching moment. Most moving comic book for me has been flash Vol. 5 (rebirth) #19. Wally West (new one) finds out through a series of events that the reverse flash from N52 (Daniel West) was not his uncle but really his dad. This clearly being alot to process Wally starts asking the flash (really barry allen unknown to Wally) a series of questions that are almost impossible. The last question asked was “is there something wrong with me?” Promptly Barry unmask himself and tells Wally “there is nothing wrong with you”. Afterwards they embrace. Its a absolutely moving moment that makes me cry everytime. So comic lovers what’s a comic that got you emotional?

There was this one issue of the Grant Morrison Animal Man comic. I read it on here, but it’s been deleted for some screwy reason.

Buddy finds himself in limbo. Grant Morrison being a man who can’t leave a fourth wall unpounded, this limbo is chock full of DC superheroes and supervillains who hadn’t been seen in years. When they’re forgotten about, when they fall out of style, this is the place they go.

You got the Space Canine Patrol Agents. You have the Inferior Five. You have The Green Team. You have Red Bee.

But what got me, reading this comic from the 1980s in 2018 was that, in this blasted land of forgotten characters, Animal Man has a long conversation… with Mister Freeze.

Again, this was the 1980s. Before Batman: The Animated Series made Mister Freeze a name again, and a big one at that.

Reckoning with this, I felt something lift within me. Because here was where this place where characters went when the writers and editors at DC didn’t even care enough to kill them off.

And Mister Freeze… got out.

…

…

He got out…

Christmas comics in general. I like the one where Superman lets Supergirl handle the years christmas cards, and she has to handle a family where the father has given up on himself and distanced himself from his daughter to drown himself in the bottle.

Also Tom Taylor’s Last Daughters from the Nuclear special.

“Whatever Happened To The Man Of Tomorrow.”
I’m sure I am not the only old timer here that was “moved” by these two comics.
We knew it was an end to an era. We knew it was a Homage to those classic imaginary stories from the 60’s. We knew Swan was retiring. We knew going forward that there was going to be no more Supergirl and Krypto.
We knew it was going to be a new era for Superman and DC comics.
I am not one of those “I stopped reading DC in 1986 because C.O.I.E. ruined my childhood” babies. I understood why DC did this. I actually was looking forward to change. By this point Superman, Flash, JLA and other DC titles stories sucked.
The death howl from Krypto made me cry.

Same here.

Crisis 7 & 8 (deaths of Supergirl and flash, respectively)

Especially back to back issues like that, I realized no hero was safe. Also their sense of self sacrifice was incredibly moving. Really made me consider the true courage of anyone who does that day in & say out.

One on my mind is when Clayface died in Detective comics rebirth run. Him or Tim’s Death. There were some sad moments in that run.

Knightfall. I was completely conflicted the entire week reading it. That is what I really like an a comic, the ability to be emotionally conflicted.

For me it was the most recent Black Widow series where she took down an organization that brutally tortured children so others could watch. It was very disturbing to me.

Death of Superman was the first comic I ever read and it had so much heart and emotional depth to the story that by the time Superman died I was in tears. That is why I have always thought of giving your life for others as the ultimate heroic act.

Dark victory is one of my favorites. Very emotional and shows some character growth.

Impulse 10. Max Mercury, Impulse’s mentor and guardian is near death in hospital and Bart has lost his powers. You really feel how slow he feels life is going. The run through the woods when it hits him how much he cares for Max and doesn’t want him to die always gets me.
