Joy’s attempt to reconnect with her mother goes disatrously wrong, as her sibling discovers her and refuses to believe that her sister has returned after being missing for so many years. Meanwhile, it turns out that there’s a reason for the growing number of superheroes on the streets – one which threatens to cause a supernatural war.

Being confronted with – and having to run from – the past is a recurring theme in this issue of The All-Nighter, with various pieces falling into place and secrets being revealed to our found family of vampires.

I’ve really enjoyed the strange mash-up of fantasy, the supernatural and superheroics that The All-Nighter has brought to the table so far; it’s a really original spin on classic comic book tropes as well as a unique take on the lore of things like vampires and other fantastical creatures.

Despite the potential wackiness of its premise, it has a lot of heart and is cleverly, unpredictably plotted – with great artwork to boot.

I’m forever lamenting the fact that it doesn’t appear to have made much of a critical or commercial impact, but having launched in the midst of Comixology’s disastrous relaunch – which has likely not helped The All-Nighter reach an audience, particularly as it’s a Comixology exclusive.
