Vampire superhero Alex is in police custody after trying to stop other fantastical creatures from causing havoc in the city. Can he be rescued? And who’s going to stop the clown-like Boogeyman, who feeds on fear?
There’s more than one excellent action sequence in issue four, as well as some creepiness thanks to Dr Buttons, the Boogeyman who’s now terrorising the city.
Chip Zdarsky continues to write a surprising, unpredictable and unique take on superheroes, expertly blended with supernatural elements. There’s a lot of odd bits and pieces thrown into the mix in The All-Nighter, but it all fits together really well and makes for a riveting, unusual tale.
Though it’s become a fairly standard superhero story at this point, the unique fantasy and horror elements give it a very original feel. The All-Nighter continues to be a comic that’s well worth checking out.
