The city is being overrun with new superheroes, while at the same time large numbers of people are going missing. Could each of those developments be connected? Meanwhile, Joy’s attempt to reconnect with her past takes a tragic turn.
With another flashback also filling in some more details of just how the vampire family came to be running an all-night diner, we also get a glimpse at the cast’s intriguing past in this issue.
The All-Nighter continues to put an original and unpredictable spin on superheroes and fantastic creatures, though it’s important to note that it also has an awful lot of heart. Joy’s situation in particular is heartbreaking, particularly when you stop to consider that her disappearance would have happened when she was a child.
It’s crazy that The All-Nighter doesn’t seem to have found much of an audience; it’s one of the most refreshing superhero comics I’ve read in a long time; it’s a genre known for being well-trodden and pretty conservative, so it’s especially exciting to find a comic that doesn’t stick to the usual tropes.
