30 Day Comic Book Challenge Day 9 – Most Touching Scene

It’s day 9 of the 30-day comic book challenge! Every day I cover a different comic book question, along with the other members of the IGN Assemble Facebook group.

Day 9 – Most Touching Comic Book Scene

There are a few comics I’ve read that have made me feel something. I mean really feel something. Saga is one for sure. But there’s only one comic that deeply hit me. I stopped reading it and just sat there, an emotional wreck afterwards.

I’m talking about Superman 712.


Superman 712 is set in the wake of Superboy’s death. The truly soul crushing thing is that Krypto doesn’t know. This poor adorable dog doesn’t know his friend is dead. So he goes to find out what happened.

What follows is heart wrenching. If you think you can handle it I can’t recommend the issue enough. It’s amazing and honestly the most emotional I’ve ever felt while reading a comic. I’m not even going to talk about it anymore as I don’t want to spoil any of it! Read at your own risk!
