A whole chapter takes place during the french revolution. Madame g. gets a lot of use. At one point, there is a full page spread of a gigantic pile of severed heads. Headless bodies are also danced around like giant marionettes. Additionally, as part of a ritual, a witch cuts off a man's toung, and head, and then nails them to the wall.

There is a lot of torture, both psychological and physical, in this book series. A major example is the 24 hour diner chapter, where a diner full of people are tortured, brainwashed, and generally put through the wringer in horrifying detail, until all are dead. There is also a serial killer convention at one point, with all the gore and bodily harm that implies.

Not exactly squashed, but one character, who is a living severed head, is killed by his father putting a hand through his face. This is done in silhouette, so the actual killing method is a little vague, but that's what it looked like to me. There is also quite a lot of head severing in general, esp. during a chapter that takes place during the French revolution.

One charecter's whole shtic is eating eyes. With his eyes. Which are actually mouths. It's a weird book series.

The main charecter is kidnapped and kept in isolation for many, many years. Additionally, a young boy is kidnapped by a serial killer (who's whole thing is killing young men) and put in the trunk of his car

At one point, a dead/zombie baby is shown as part of a dream sequence. Said dead baby is placed in a cot with another infant, which it then eats. An infant is a victim of SID. We don't see the dead body, but we do see its mother collapsed in grief by its crib. In the same chapter, a young man (13 or 14) is hit by a car. A toddler is also possessed, for lack of a better term, by an aspect of a God, and is completely destroyed by it.

A man stalks a young woman using spy birds that live in his chest. It's weird on many levels

Many charecters are in comas in the first book, and are therefore in hospitals

The main charecter is kept in a very confined space for many years. YMMV.

One chapter is entirely dedicated to a young women's depression, and her eventual decision to commit suicide. The main charecter also kills himself at the end.

One of the characters is the anthropomorphic personification (basically goddess) of despair, and she frequently cuts herself with a small fishhook.

There is a LOT of sexual content/ nudity in this series. There are no genetalia or penetration shown, however, although it is often implied.

There is a scene where Dream and Desire (two siblings) are a little more touchy feely than might be considered normal. Very much YMMV

A gay woman in the 6th issue (24 Hours), along with everybody else in the diner, is abused (beaten up, very homophobic verbal abuse), tortured and killed.

At one point, a pregnant woman sees a group of special needs children walk by, and expresses disgust towards them, as well as fear that her own child might end up a 'freak'

Big spoiler, but the main charecter orchestrates his own death at the end. I would, however, classify it as more bittersweet then straight up sad. There are two issues dedicated to a wake, and a funeral

So much blood and gore. If this triggers you at all, it would be a good idea to stay far, FAR away from this series. It really does not skimp on the gore.
