The vampires-cosplaying-as-superheroes story The All-Nighter by Chip Zdarsky and Jason Loo will return later this week for a second season.
ComiXology Originals has announced The All-Nighter #6, which follows the first five-issue arc that debuted last fall.
“I’m thrilled to be continuing this story with Jason,” Zdarsky said. “He’s become quite popular these days and has more than once said, ‘Who are you again?’ when I email him, so the fact that he’s delivering the best work of his career on volume two of The All-Nighter is fantastic! I think every comic book reader in the world should be reading this book, that’s just my humble opinion!”
The story picks up after the events of issue #5, which was released in January.
“YEAH!!! Some of my best work IS in this volume!” said Loo. “Chip and I are having a huge blast as we dive deeper into The All-Nighter series with our versions of the classic monsters and I think readers are going to love this series even more. Also, working with the ORIGINAL Bat-Man has been a dream come true!”
Here’s the description:
Welcome to The All-Nighter, the only diner in town run by covert superheroes (who are also secretly vampires).
With Ian missing and Cynthia running the diner, tensions are running high. Alex and Joy are stuck covering shifts when they’d rather be out fighting bad guys. To make things worse, people start disappearing just as a new superhero team arrives in town—could the two be related?
“The whole team is back together! Me, Jason, Paris, Aditya and Allison have been hard at work on more superhero vampire goodness! Not only that, we just read the pilot script for the—GASP—Amazon Studios adaptation and it’s incredibly fun and action-packed! What a time to be (un)alive!” Zdarsky added in his email newsletter.
The All-Nighter #6 arrives on Tuesday, and based on what Amazon is showing, it looks like this next arc will run for another five issues.
