July 22, 2021– New York, NY – The Eisner award-winning creative team that brought you AFTERLIFT—writer Chip Zdarsky, artist Jason Loo, colorist Paris Alleyne, letterer Aditya Bidikar, and editor Alison O’Toole—are reuniting for an all-new comic book about vampires who sometimes moonlight as superheroes. The comiXology Originals series The All-Nighter arrives digitally in 2022 and will also be in print from Dark Horse Books. The All-Nighter is currently in development as an original series for Amazon Studios with executive producer Jordan Feiner.
“Working on AFTERLIFT was an amazing experience, especially getting to see the beautiful pages coming in from Jason, Paris and Aditya!" said Zdarsky. “I knew I wanted to work with them again immediately, and I’m super grateful that we have the chance with The All-Nighter! It’s a ton of fun and I hope everyone loves it as much as I do!”
Welcome to The All-Nighter, the only diner in town where you can get coffee and a meal from sunset to sunrise! The staff are friendly (kind of) and happy to serve you (sometimes), and it would never cross their minds to drink their customers’ blood. . . .
Alex is bored—flipping burgers for strangers all night is no way for a vampire to live. But he and his fellow vampires Joy, Cynthia, and Ian have agreed to blend into human society. Inspired by superhero movies, one of the few passions in his un-life, Alex decides to don a cape and start fighting bad guys. But his decision will have bigger consequences than he realizes—for himself and for everyone he wants to protect.
"I'm really excited to be part of a series that offers a unique and really fun take on the superhero genre,” says Loo. “Every issue has a surprise that will get readers hooked and wondering: 'who's gonna show up next?!'"
“The All-Nighter is a story about the importance of found family and the dangers of pretending to be someone other than who you are,'' said Chip Mosher, Head of Content of comiXology. “Chip Zdarsky and Jason Loo have brought their A game to their fun and fast-paced take on superheroes. It’s a terrific follow up to their Eisner Award-winning AFTERLIFT and I'm thrilled to see the story showcased in digital and print.”
