All-Star Superman is just full of those moments, from seeing Pa Kent’s death to Superman saving the woman committing suicide.

Superman v2 #75 made me tear up, while #212 from the same series touched my heart.

Tynion’s run on Detective Comics, when Cassandra tears the bat symbol off Kate’s chest. Cass’s feelings hurt and betrayal just radiates off the page.

Identity Crisis the murder and funeral of Sue Dibny is one of most emotional moments in comics I have read. It did a great job building up showing how much Ralph loved her, to just give the ready a “bag over the head and punch in the face”

Identity Crisis has major issues, but I totally agree that the actual emotional fallout of what happened with Sue works. The funeral scene comes to mind, where Ralph is both emotionally and physically trying to hold himself together.

When someone dies in the Graduation Day storyline. Every single time I get to it I cry :sob: the words said right before it and the build up gets to me. Same character also made me cry when they were in Justice League and the words Robinson wrote was about how the character wanted to go away for a bit. It made me cry because it felt like the end of comics for me, at that time. A final chapter, if you will. I eventually came back, but never felt the same again.

The story that really hit me in the feels recently was “How Do You Solve a Problem Like Bizarro” from Rebirth’s Red Hood and the Outlaws. Before that I literally cried when Jason Todd was killed. I was extremely angry about the stunt involved there, which I though was tasteless, but his death itself still struck me really hard at the time and it still does to some degree whenever it is revisited in a flashback.
