I'm in 100% agreement with Jeff. Spidey & MJ's undoing was foolish and tragic.

The Batman and Robin silent issue after Damian died is the only comic I've ever teared up over. Truly a masterpiece.

The B&R silent issue made me cry. I'll admit to that. ...I had to sit on the loss of Damian for a long time.

During DC's 2007-2008 series '52' you see Vic Sage as The Question basically wither away and die from cancer. That was really tough for me, cancer has hit my family hard over the years.

Losing Peter Parker in Ultimate Spidey was such a tragic ending too, made it really hard to open up to Miles for an extended amount of time since it just felt wrong to replace the Peter I had literally grown up reading.

The only time I actually cried (as in, crying, not "tearing up") was the panel when Ult. Spidey was walking into the light with Uncle Ben. T^T

Definitely agree with Batman and Robin #18

How do you not get sad looking at that?

Psh, I had the best answer ;)

I said the All-Star Superman ending was the saddest moment in comics... such a good yet sad ending to one of the greatest stories

#8 Posted by Superwondy (134 posts) - - Show Bio

I agree with Christine.

#9 Edited by csguterres (201 posts) - - Show Bio

The end of Frank Castle's one-man-war against crime in Punisher MAX #21

He just wanted to get home... I cried.

Complete agreement, followed by Peter Parker dying in Ock's body.

Cyborg replacing Martian Manhunter as a Justice League founder was one of the saddest moments in comic history.

Ultimate Spider-Man's death.

"I'm sorry I couldn't save Uncle Ben, Aunt May. But at least I saved you."

When Beyonder was created...lol

In all seriousness, Death Of Superman to me still gives me more emotional reaction than any other DC or Marvel comic I've ever read.

#15 Posted by fables87 (1009 posts) - - Show Bio

The saddest moment I read recently has got to be in Fables with Cubs in Toyland.

The death of Ted Kord in Countdown to Infinite Crisis.

Morpheus apologizes to Matthew, Sandman #68.

#18 Posted by spacemanspiff85 (99 posts) - - Show Bio

The ending of Final Execution in Uncanny X-Force was pretty sad to me. Not just that Wolverine had to kill his son, but the way the whole issue was intercut with imaginings of what a happy childhood for him would've been like. That got to me.

#19 Posted by DaltonMunnal (164 posts) - - Show Bio

I cried when I read The Death of Gwen Stacy, and The Death of (Ultimate) Spider-Man. No other comic has brought me even close to that.

#20 Edited by V_Scarlotte_Rose (6312 posts) - - Show Bio

The saddest moments that come to mind are Batwoman #0(Interlude) before the funeral, and Kate says, "Beth always helped me pick out what to wear". And Mighty Avengers #20, Wasps funeral.

Damians death. Man, what a ride I shared with the little guy. He is one of the reasons that morrisons Batman run will always be my favorite run on a book. At first i hated Damian so much and then he was one of my favorite characters in all of comics.

When he died and we saw Bruce carrying the coffin I really teared up.

#29 Edited by ohrenclez (77 posts) - - Show Bio

The end of Flashpoint when Bruce reads his dad's letter...one of the saddest and most beautiful moments at the same time

#31 Edited by EvilPenguin543 (178 posts) - - Show Bio

Batman and Robin #18 is the first time I had to put down a comic in the middle of reading it, and just walk away...then come back with a box of tissues; that's probably my saddest moment. But Peter's death in Ultimate Spider-Man is a close second.

#32 Posted by BlackLegRaph (685 posts) - - Show Bio

Elongated Man's reaction to his wife's death (Sue Dibny). This was right around the time I really started to get into comics, and that whole story actually moved me to a whimper.

#33 Edited by Lykida (184 posts) - - Show Bio

There were quite a few heart-breaking moments over the years (Wasp's funeral, Sentry's death, Peter dying in Ock's body), but the moment that touched me the most was Thor and Jane sitting on the moon watching earth after she just told him she had cancer.

It's such a sad and moving moment and it tells the reader so much about Thor's character and his love for midgard and humans.

"My last earth girlfriend was breathtaking."

#34 Edited by RaggedScarecrow (862 posts) - - Show Bio

That issue of New X-Men (Academy X) were Emma Frost show Ms. Marvel all the horrors that the School's student body have undergone. This page in particular always gets me:

Also, the funeral issue of the same series. Yeah, New X-Men had a lot of moments that made me sad.

#35 Posted by Battle_Forum_Junkie (8057 posts) - - Show Bio

Definitely agree with Batman and Robin #18

How do you not get sad looking at that?

Why, man? WHY!?!? :,(

I forgot about the one GMan posted about..... now that I saw it I remember it. YES that is a very sad moment.

Along with Ultimate Spiderman Funeral

Mine is kind of silly compared to all these deaths, but at the time it struck me pretty hard. Kitty Pryde cheating on and dumping Pete Wisdom in Excalibur. This mimicked and came out the same month that my ex fiancee dumped me for a friend while I was stationed overseas. I thought it was really well done when played against Nightmare tormenting the entire team and Pete's comment really struck me. "Nothing you could put me through is any worse than what she's already doing." Sometimes the most powerful things come about because they parallel your own life. Wisdom is still my favorite Marvel character, I hope he gets some use at some point.

Ultimate Spider-Man. It was one of the first comics I read

Yeah it's been said before, Ult. Spider-Man dying, Batman and Robin 18, I read that issue Tony was talking about and it was touching.

Oh and also August 31, 2011.

My first thought was Gwen Stacy but this is oblivious the right answer:

I'm in 100% agreement with Jeff. Spidey & MJ's undoing was foolish and tragic.

The reason I no longer read Spider-man.

#48 Edited by johnqestion (176 posts) - - Show Bio

Some good ones that actually answer the question and some trolling ones like the one whining over sm/ww.

Gwen for sure.

Wow...Spidey is really good at making me sad...

For me, it's the death of Ted Kord. I still can't believe it happened.
