    The rest of the artwork, with the emotions running wild on the pages, made the comic much stronger than it would have been without them. Martha's purpose and Kit's mother used to make the story interesting since it would have been reduced to unsympathetic characters and a still forming romance without those, but this issue does a complete 180. Kit's interactions with Dwayne and Jim were great in this issue and Martha just made the issue confusing, while Kit's mother had no impact on the plot in this issue, except by making Kit's character even more sympathetic. Right now, the story is good, but Hahn needs to decide where it's going, because at this point I'm even more lost than I was after the second issue. The air of mystery has quickly grown tiresome. It still feels like a better series for teenage girls, but has a little something to offer for everyone else. Read Full Review

    I'm pretty far removed from the social drama of being in your early 20s and trying to find yourself, so one might expect that the characters in All Nighter would be somewhat foreign to me, that I wouldn't be able to connect with them. But for a reader such as myself, four decades into his life, Hahn's characters represent memories. Jim's sheepishness, his embarrassment, his awkwardness around women - I recognize myself (or my past self) in him. Kit and Martha's sense of wonder at the house party is also something just about anyone can recognize in themselves or in past points in their lives. Read Full Review

    Its nice to come to the realisation that this book was worth sticking around for. It has earned a place at the top of my reading pile and in one sense it is a pity it is a mini series as Id love to see it continue but at the same time, Ill just enjoy it while its here. Read Full Review

    All-Nighter is a curious beast. As another entry in the "young cool people" genre that I'm incredibly fond of (see: Scott Pilgrim, Lil Depressed Boy) it feels distinct with some solid character work and dialogue. The characters all look remarkably different from one another, each with their own personalities and each drawn with their own specific looks and manners of dress. Read Full Review
