I read a graphic novel once which I can only vaguely remember now. The main character was a man who was somehow connected to this other world (I can't remember if it was real or fantasy) and I do remember an illustration where he was hallucinating and eyeballs were floating out of his mouth.

I also remember this evil character that was sewn together and was in the process of sewing two characters together, making them into a conjoined, deformed human being.

I also remember another character (I think his name was Constantine, I'm not sure) who was in this fantasy/alternate universe fighting a battle against some greater evil, and that the protagonist was somehow connected to it.

    Do you remember how many years it's been? Maybe when you read it, or when it was published? If you haven't already can I suggest you take a look at this guide and see if you can edit in any more details. – Edlothiad May 12 '18 at 7:32

    From 1988 to 2013, DC's Vertigo imprint published a monthly comic book titled Hellblazer. The star was named John Constantine. I never became a fan, but I know the series was full of graphic horror scenes (unlike, say, the typical family-friendly "Superman" comic book) and all sorts of strange and psychedelic things happened in it. You may very well be remembering a trade paperback collection of a story arc from that title. Since I've read almost none of the series, I can't pin it down with a nice specific "Answer," so I'm just leaving this suggestion in a comment. – Lorendiac May 12 '18 at 10:50
  • This might also have been The Books of Magic in which John Constantine was a major character. I don't recall the sewing together scene, though. – Lexible May 12 '18 at 17:40
  • @Edlothiad I believe I was 12 or 13 when I read this graphic novel, so I remember only vague details, like how the main character had a girlfriend with red hair, or how he jumped into the ocean with this other girl and made out with her. – Leah Chesley May 13 '18 at 2:13
  • @Lorendiac I looked up the Hellblazer comics, and I did not see a similar drawing style or similar plot to the graphic novel I read. I believe that Constantine was a part of it, though it has been a while and I'm not 100% sure. – Leah Chesley May 13 '18 at 2:16
