But seriously. I remember Blankets being pretty emotional.
Pride of Baghdad was sort of like that but the only other ones I remember that affected me in that way were Marvel comics, maybe because I grew up with Marvel and its like family to me. I got sad after reading Bendis' note at the end of DD 81, same thing when I saw Tony sitting alone at the end of the Illuminati special (I think someone said something like "it was fun while it lasted") and also when Cap died. But those were more because of the significance of those events and not so much because of the story itself (although they were still good stories). The only time I really cried was in The Confession when Tony admits to dead Cap "it wasn't worth it" and I'm somewhat embarrassed to admit it but there it is.
I'm just asking because I'm guessing the majority of comic book fans are guys and don't get too emotional so if a story was good enough to evoke that sort of emotion in you then it must be good, right? That's what I'm after.
The last issue of Y.
This X-Men story right here . . .
Fucking racism just makes me angry and sad at the same time.

It's only happened twice. Y 60 and Jimmy Corrigan.
I think maybe that one issue of Bendis' UXM run with the kid and the town.
Yeah I kinda teared up for Y too but the last page made me smile.
Props on the reference to She Lies with Angels. I love that story.
Brubaker has gotten me VERY close twice. Foggy and Sharon's kid.
