The All-Nighter #11 Review:

In the final arc of this series, our teen vampire meets superhero is battling some epic forces, leading to a surprise cliffhanger nobody could have seen coming.

Though host Alex Zalben admitted he wasn’t completely familiar with the title, he “really dug this” anyway. Zalben called out Jason Loo’s art style, “And even with not knowing the situations I was instantly drawn in by this kid vampire superhero… There seems to be a lot of danger and intrigue going on there. And there’s also a wild twist in the last page that made me want to go back and read all of this.”

On that twist, in particular, Zalben called this book “Probably Chip Zdarsky’s Preacher.”

Pete LePage called this book a “really unbelievable story… Love the pace of it… Art was really impressive. And I can’t believe is the end. I’m really bummed because I thought it was so cool.”

Justin Tyler compared the book to both the Buffy the Vampire Slayer comics and TV show. “This isn’t an homage or ripping it off, but coming at vampire stories and the larger mythology around them in a completely different way. But landing in a similar place with good dialogue, good characters, good action, and a fun reveal at the end.”

The All-Nighter #11 Official Synopsis:

In the wake of Alex’s disappearance, his friends are trying to piece their lives back together. They know that Alex would stop at nothing to get any of them back, so they have no choice: it’s time to bring this fight to The Takers.
