My review of The All-Nighter #1 noted just how unpredictable and unique it was; now it’s going to be pretty impossible to talk about issue 2 without spoiling the contents of the first issue – so please do download it from Comixology (sadly, it’s a Comixology/Amazon exclusive) before reading any further. Spoilers now follow – you have been warned!
The vampires who run the all night diner are visited by a friend – Frankenstein. And yes, he does know that technically he should be ‘Frankenstein’s Monster’, but doesn’t care. Following some reports of superheroes in the neighbourhood, he’s there to warn the family that if any of them are engaged in vigilante-style activities, they need to stop before they expose themselves. And he’s on the right track: the ‘youngest’ of the vampires are the superheroes he’s looking for…
I mean, just reading that synopsis of this issue: doesn’t it sound unlike anything you’ve ever read? There’s a crazy amount of lore, world building and even action propelling the story forward in this issue that it’s almost dizzying in terms of what’s going on. Everything does seem to have a place and purpose – and it’s truly compelling, despite its unique, somewhat batshit crazy premise.
I’d definitely recommend reading The All-Nighter – it’s a weird and wonderful ride so far; I genuinely have no idea where it’s going, but so far it’s very intriguing and exciting. Let’s hope it stays that way.
