A new cartoon about vampires moonlight as superheroes
Eisner Award-winning creative team that brought you AFTERLIFT writer Chip Zdarsky, artist Jason Loo, colorist Paris Alleyne, letter writer Aditya Bidikar and editor Alison O’Toole reunite into a whole new cartoon about vampires who sometimes moonlight as superheroes. The ComiXology Originals series The All-Nighter will come digitally in 2022 and will also be in print from Dark Horse Books. All-Nighter is currently under development as an original series for Amazon Studios with executive producer Jordan Feiner.
“Working with AFTERLIFT was a fantastic experience, especially to see the beautiful sides come in from Jason, Paris and Aditya!” Said Zdarsky. “I knew I would work with them again right away and I am super grateful that we have the chance with The All-Nighter! It’s lots of fun and I hope everyone likes it as much as I do! ”
Welcome to The All-Nighter, the only dining room in town where you can have coffee and a meal from sunset to sunrise! The staff are friendly (sort of) and look forward to serving you (sometimes) and it would never occur to them to drink their customers’ blood. . . .
Alex is bored – turning burgers for strangers all night is not possible for a vampire to live. But he and his other vampires Joy, Cynthia and Ian have agreed to interfere in human society. Inspired by superhero movies, one of the few passions in his life, Alex decides to put on a cloak and start fighting evil. But his decision has bigger consequences than he realizes – for himself and for everyone he wants to protect.
“I’m really excited to be a part of a series that features a unique and really fun recording of the superhero genre,” Loo says. “Each issue has a surprise that makes readers hooked and wonders, ‘who’s going to show up next time ?!'”
“All-Nighter is a story about the importance of a found family and the dangers of pretending to be someone other than who you are,” said Chip Mosher, Head of Content at comiXology. “Chip Zdarsky and Jason Loo have brought their A-games to their fun and fast take on superheroes. It’s a great follow-up to their Eisner award-winning AFTERLIFT, and I’m thrilled to see the story shown in digital and print. ”
