10 Most Brutal Deaths In Comics

9. Rorschach Burns a Man Alive (Watchmen)
951441 rorschach page 01 super 10 Most Brutal Deaths In Comics
This should be a familiar scene for most comic fans. It’s the moment Rorschach leaves Walter Kovacs behind and fully embraces his alter-ego and his mission to purge the world of evil. Driven past the point of sanity by the horrible realization that a kidnapper has dismembered an innocent girl and fed her remains to his German Shepherds, he captures the man and presents him with a choice – to cut off his own hand or burn to death. Well, it’s not really much of a choice, because Rorschach pretty much dumps gasoline around him and drops a match in the instant after the man realizes just what his predicament is. He then delivers a speech enunciating his nihilistic view on humanity and the world, which is arguably as brutal as the death that spawned it.

      Nope, nope they haven’t Phantasmaniac. I scrolled down just knowing that it would show up near the top, but no dice.

    Just got to agree with Lonmonster.. in fact nothing at ALL from The Walking Dead was a SHOCK.. not even an honorable mention of TWD 100.. which was awful.. or the fate of Carol or Dale, for that matter.. although, I guess Carol wasn’t so much brutal as just.. kind of pathetic and disturbingly almost out of nowhere.. but I would endorse TWD 100 .. or even the.. fate of Lori and her daughter in the escape from the prison as well.

    These are some crazy ways of brutal deaths, but manga has some real sick shit, one the most brutal and horrific deaths happen in BERSERK people getting eaten alive by giant monsters or people being completely gotten cut in half by a man wielding a giant ass sword

    The Jason Todd death is what opened to the door to comics for me. At age 10 at the time, I couldn’t believe something that graphic was in a comic book. Bought the trade paperback and became a casual comic fan after that.

    The Death of Superman is what really did it for me though. I was way into that story. Death wasn’t nearly as cruel, but the story was much stronger (for me anyway).

    I agree the death scene from Walking Dead #100 should have been on here. Now with Invincible #100 out this week that should be on the list as well. Otherwise a great list.

    I love how Alan Moore’s three most well known comics are in here. I will say I would have loved to see something from Preacher maybe how Preacher made Fuckface’s father kill himself.

    Sorry, but you can’t write an article like this without including Glenn’s death in Walking Dead #100. That’s not even debatable.

    WOW surprised Crossed didn’t make the list that thing had TONS of main characters getting knocked off.. Also The punisher Max to this day still stands as one of the best Punisher comics.

    Where are the little girls that get decapitated, then have their heads revived in The Walking Dead? Or The Russian, who the Punisher slowly smothered to death using his morbidly obese neighbor Mr. Bumpo? Or the Messiah and Allfather D’Aronique from Preacher, who died when the later was dropped from 100 feet in the air onto the former? Where is Bushmaster, who got his bones broken, hand cut off (I think), cheek eaten, then face sliced off by a pissed off Moon Knight? Pfft.
