Superhero Vampires? ‘The All-Nighter’ Coming To ComiXology And Dark Horse In 2022 From Zdarsky And Loo

by Olly MacNamee

Writer Chip Zdarsky, artist Jason Loo, colourist Paris Alleyne, letterer Aditya Bidikar, and editor Alison O’Toole – the gang behind Afterlife – are reuniting for an all-new comiXology Originals series, The All-Nighter. A comic book about vampires who also moonlight as superheroes. As well as launching digitally in 2022 it will also be published by Dark Horse Books. Furthermore, even before a single issue goes live, The All-Nighter is currently in development as an original series for Amazon Studios with executive producer Jordan Feiner.

“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.”

Here’s Loo’s take on the new series;

“I’m really excited to be part of a series that offers a unique and really fun take on the superhero genre. Every issue has a surprise that will get readers hooked and wondering: ‘who’s gonna show up next?!'”

The All-Nighter will be available in print on February 15th, 2022 from Dark Horse Books. And available for pre-order now online and in comic book stores. While there is no launch date for the digital release, comiXology Originals will offer that closer to release. January, 2022 maybe, ahead of the Dark Horse publication? We’ll let you know when we hear anything else.
