It’s not all sunshine and gumdrops being a comic character. Sometimes – actually, quite often – characters meet a gruesome, brutal fate. And that’s what we’re here to celebrate, because we are horrible, morbid, immoral people who delight in the suffering and agony of fictional characters. Comics have a history of violent deaths, but sometimes they are forgotten, left lying in the gutters. We’ve compiled a list of what we believe are the most brutal deaths in comics. It goes without saying, this is NSFW.

Before we begin, I’d like to point out that this list contains SPOILERS. Also, while I was able to narrow this list down to the top ten, there are some honorable mentions that deserve a spot as well that you can see below. They didn’t make the brutality cut, but it wasn’t for lack of trying. Without further ado here they are:

10. Mice (We3)

Believe it or not, there’s a part of me that feels this should actually be higher on this list. Yeah, these are just two random lab mice, but the concept behind this is staggeringly disturbing. A mouse is technologically altered by having a drill fit to its head and has its movements controlled by military scientists. As a demonstration, one of the scientists takes the mouse and forces it to drill one of its coworkers to death. It’s a single scene that is terrifying in its depiction of the banality of evil and the grotesque results from weaponizing living creatures.

    Someone hasnt read Walking Dead #100 yet

    • Lonmonster

      I can’t speak for George, but I actually haven’t…I wait for the trades.

    • wildgator25

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

  • Canucklehead

    The Jason Todd beating was very disturbing

  • HMH

    Midnighter is Amazing.

    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.

  • Harry Pujols

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

  • jakeen229

    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.

  • LivingDeadPunk

    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.
