Developed as part of the licensing deal between Comixology, Dark Horse, and Amazon Studios, The All-Nighter takes place in a world where vampires live among regular humans. The protagonist of the story is Alex, a young vampire who flips burgers at the titular diner, All-Nighter. He channels his love of the human phenomenon that is the superhero movie alongside his vampiric friends Joy, Cynthia, and Ian, deciding to trade his life in supernatural catering for superheroic vigilantism. But Alex’s heroic acts quickly threaten to put not just him and his friends in the spotlight but everyone he cared about enough to become a hero to protect in the first place.
