So I know people have cried all the time watching movies, but have you ever cried reading a comic book? It could he because a character died, something like that, or tears of joy. I have never cried but have you? If you have how bout you tell us why too.
A few times actually.
- Like @black_arrowsaid, all scenes with the Kents got to me in Funeral For A Friend
- When Ted Kord dies again at the end of Booster Gold: Blue and Gold
- When the younger Hal appears in Green Lantern #20
- The ending scenes of Clark's 'paradise' in Superman Annual #11 - For the Man Who Has Everything...
Damn...that's some heavy material.
Until now just once while reading Batman and Robin #18, when Bruce found the letter my tears found the way out
Same for me, except I think I lost it at the very end when he broke the case that held Damian's costume and stood silently holding it. That part reminded me of the touching moment he and Damian had after the business with NoBody and he told Damian he was proud of him. I did almost lose it when Alfred broke down-he's the real backbone of the Bat Family. I wrote DC a long letter about that issue as it affected me that much.
There are some really good examples here, and the scans really help to drive the point home. Thanks for those.
I never cry anymore, but I was precariously close when Octavius held his former body in his hands and with a harrowed, broken voice asked the dying Peter Parker "How to do this?" He wanted to know how to be the hero he never had the chance to be and instead of hating Octavius for stealing his body, Peter cried as his body began to shut down and the reality of his death began to set in...he said "You're Spider-man now...promise me you will protect this city." He took his last breath and died... and I nearly cried...much to my shock. For such an iconic ,though fictional hero to die so horribly... and for Peter to pass on the mantle so generously... how he died with absolutely no one noticing... no words can accurately describe the emotions running through me at that moment.
Ultimate spider man death is a tear jerker, the last quote especially about him being able to save aunt may. Superman's message to his parents in Birthright and his death, the last thing he cared about was the people. All star superman when he saves the girl from suicide.
Felt hurt inside but never cried. The one that caused that was Neji's death in Naruto, but half of the reason is because I felt more bad for Hinata. Didn't read it in the manga saw it on the anime. I haven't kept track of Naruto for a while. I stop when Pain was fight Kakashi I just find out about parts that I missed from blogs, reviews, or Youtube.
Nope..been bummed out before but idk. Maybe it's just comics just don't do it for me the same way films/video games can. For ex in TWD when you see that last scene between Lee and Clementine when Lee's about to die/turn ..not that really hit me in the feels, but comic wise? Idk it just doesn't phase me I guess. Didn't cry when Parker "died" in ASM #700 either but I guess that's because most of the time I know these characters will be back eventually anyways
