Lifedeath and Lifedeath Part 2 are two of the greatest comics issues ever made.
From the caption on Imgur (in case you're using RES):
This is a pretty formative story for me when I got into comics. By this time (1984) I was buying and reading quite a bit and was pretty into the X-men. This story was a gut punch for someone who got into comics after the Jean Grey Phoenix Saga. I was not used to heroes being permanently maimed and these two issues are a wonderful exploration of: bad things happening to good people, and how people deal with serious trauma. I read these over and over and 186 especially showed me how much I appreciated the bittersweet ending.
I love this era of X-Men. This Kulan Gath storyline after this one is also one of my favorites

Why is that such a stretch for them to buy? People come from alternate universes all the time in marvel. Hell Cyclopse there isnt even from the current time.
Also man that Gwen Miles relationship never made sense.
Isn’t Gwen supposed to be college-aged, and Miles only like 15?
If I had to No-Prize why Kamala and Cyclops are laughing, I'd say Kamala met Gwen and knows that the two of them aren't dating, and Cyclops is laughing to cover up the intense pain of everything he's seen regarding his future family tree.
Is this comic any good?
Somebody tell Mark Waid that Miles actually has a girlfriend and it's not Spider-Gwen (fuck you Bendis for making this a thing).
See, there were these two guys in a lunatic asylum...
There's one time where Superman forced batman to smile using his hand
I still haven't read it, but I hope they will take this photo. And then Superman could give it to Alfred, and the would keep it in his corner of the batcave.
cheeky bastard's just holding out
Contest begins now. Go shuffle thru your books and find an image of said items.
First thing I thought of was the team picture from Identity Crisis. So, I look it up. Everyone is all smiles except for Red Tornado, Green Arrow and Batman. The Android and 2 millionaires. Oh to be a grumpy DC millionaire.
I can only think of one time that Batman smiled and that was in the Injustice comics when Superman said they wanted to make him the godfather for his son. Best moment ever, which lead to the most gut wrenching story of all time.
For all of DC's nonsense this week, this was shining spot, and they've been killing it with these "slice of life" type issues.
Well, i am not surprised it's so rare
As someone who's had a lot of dealings with chronically ill children, this was such a great and wholesome issue.
I would love to see more one-and-done stories like this. Tomasi, Gleason, Kitson, and crew did a great job with this.
That's like some Rocket Raccoon shit right there.
I am sure the justice league thought of this. I'm sure they have a smaller, curated area for the kids to see
Why would he give them smartphones? Isn't simple camera enough? Or did he make Bruce to pay for the phones?
Easy. Just get a pic from when Dick Grayson was Batman. He did a fair amount of smiling.
There was one issue from that time where Two-Face (IIRC) was looking at footage of Batman in action, and realized it was a different person under the cowl, because he was smiling, and seemed to be enjoying himself.
this issue was just great
I have this friend. He doesn't talk much, he doesn't laugh that much, and he jokes even less. But when he does joke, it usually is the funniest thing we hear all week.
That, in my opinion, is what Batman probably is during League meetings.
Doesn't Batman smile at Green Lantern in one of the animated movies when he asks, "Wait a minute - are you just a guy in a costume?"
Yep - right after he steals the ring.
It'd be cool of there was one evil kid who stole some of Joker's laughing gas and dosed Batman when he least expected it.
Batman smiled a lot in the 1950's. All these kids need to find is a time machine.
I’m sure this won’t be taken well given the jovial nature of this post, but Superman went from my favorite pull at the beginning of rebirth to my sloggiest read around when Tomasi and Gleason stopped providing main art and their first guest writer came in.
Should I start reading Superman Rebirth?
Cyborgs entire arm? Jesus Christ, violation much?
If there’s a moment where they actually get a photo of him smiling, and he allowed it, I think it’d be one of my favorite moments showing how much Bruce has changed since The Button.
Find someone Batman is hunting during a particularly difficult time.
Wait for Batman to get to the hunted.
Wait for Batman to start beating down the hunted.
Profit Go on that other trip with Superman.
Context? Also I love the concept of this
The most rare item in the DCEU would be a photo of a smiling Superman.
Did anyone get a picture of Batman smiling?
Can I get printout of Batman smiling?
But did they find it tho
Oh just let him plow the batmobile through some cop cars, he finds that hilarious
It's actually quite simple. All the kids have to do is watch the recent Justice league movie where Batman constantly fawns over Superman and smiles like a fan girl.
gets to take another special trip!
Am I the only one who thinks that sounds like he's gonna euthanise the disabled?

I'm a bot, bleep, bloop. Someone has linked to this thread from another place on reddit:

I don’t get the significance, sorry
A non virgin on Reddit who reads this....? That's the rarest thing in the DC Univ.
They could just look online for family photos of the Wayne family
Isn't there a less-strenuous activity for these kids than a scavenger hunt through a massive space station? I'm sure their chemo-zapped bodies could only stand to find maybe one or two of the items before they have to sit down from exhaustion.
I've never understood why I love John Cassaday so much. His faces all look like they're being disproportionately impacted by gravity relative to the rest of the body. And yet, I love him.
This post-9/11 Cap story was actually my introduction to John Cassidy.
What a huge talent. I need to read Planetary again.
I met him at a con earlier this year— the man is awesome to chat with. My favorite thing he said was that he loved working on the Death of Cap run (which I had him sign) "except, ya know, it was a funeral... So it was fun but also... it was a funeral".
Phone background a-go-go!
Gorgeous art, would have loved to see the following page and where the train of thought went
March is a great, powerful series. One of my favorites in recent years.
I approve. Hyperviolence is one of the hallmarks of the cyberpunk style.
I actually really dig her hair in this
The lack of bra will always bother me.
I see a bit of Jaime Hernandez influence in that art.

I just love Mignola's art style. I wish he would draw Ghost Rider or Constantine.
Made into a statue by Mondo (with a colour scheme designed by Dave Stewart).
