I read this graphic novel about four to five years ago.

It has traveling between worlds, I think. Maybe the ghost and the human world? But I don't know - I do know that the character met his grandfather and can fly. There's a lot of other magic, like changing sizes and maybe teleportation.

A bunch of other random facts from the story:

  • They ate spiders.
  • The characters in the (maybe) ghost world aren't really human.
  • Time/world travel ship created by a women.
  • The people sent to fetch the main character were in a relationship.
  • There was an evil dude who used this weird machine that produced green light to determine the main character's potential.

Is there any fantasy graphic novel that fits this description?

  • @SeanDuggan I asked the question in two different stack exchange sites in hopes that someone in one of the two sites could answer me. Jan 4, 2023 at 17:17
  • I get that. I did the same with an old fantasy computer game, posting it in both SF&F and Retrocomputing. I just figured it was worth mentioning here. Jan 4, 2023 at 17:44

Ghostopolis by Doug TenNapel perhaps.

Description from goodreads.com:

A page-turning adventure of a boy's journey to the land of ghosts and back.

Imagine Garth Hale's surprise when he's accidentally zapped to the spirit world by Frank Gallows, a washed-out ghost wrangler. Suddenly Garth finds he has powers the ghosts don't have, and he's stuck in a world run by the evil ruler of Ghostopolis, who would use Garth's newfound abilities to rule the ghostly kingdom. When Garth meets Cecil, his grandfather's ghost, the two search for a way to get Garth back home, and nearly lose hope until Frank Gallows shows up to fix his mistake.
