Anyone who is too lazy to bother reading a free comic should probably be in a different group.

Probably has something to do with being stuck back in 1994 when Kevin Smith was still funny,

It was alright, nothing special but nothing as bad as we've read lately.

I'll admit that All Nighter #1 is a well written comic. All of the characters' motivations are clear and they seem like real people. Kit is a bit of an idiot, but she's a realistic seeming idiot. The plot also makes sense. Having said that, I can't say I actually enjoyed it. I'm sure that there are people out there who did enjoy it, and hey cool, I have no problem with that. In the end, it just isn't my thing.

I guess I'll give it a 6 out of 10 strictly because I can't give something that clearly isn't bad a mark below 5 simply because its not my cup of tea.

All Nighter #1

The main flaw in this issue for me is the main character. There's nothing to make her exceptional from any other garden-variety criminal, or indeed at all like-able in her narcissistic rationalizations for her stealing, lying to friends, and generally being useless or detrimental to the world around her and the people in it. Yeah, you're so punk rock, baby...

She's an artist, we're told, but there are no signs of her having artistic sensibilities or any artistic output, unless you count her fashion-sense (and I don't). In fact, although Dwayne tries to tempt her with the art supplies she'll be able to buy after their big score, all Kit thinks about are the new boots or jeans she could get with her ill-gotten gains. The publicity for this book mentions her transition to an adult--all I see in the first issue is a whiny narcissistic scumbag, so that's gonna have to be quite the transition upcoming for me to muster anything but scorn for a person who mooches from her "best friend" but feels comfortable lying to their face (with the trite so-called "truths" to bookend the lies, of course).

I understand the diner is supposed to be a center of activity in the book, but really, blabbing and exclaiming about one's plans for a burglary in a place like that is pretty dumb, then again so is going through the loot while sitting on the hood of your getaway car, or stopping to make a submarine sandwich during a home invasion. The only satisfying conclusion to this comic for me would have been the main characters getting shot by cops or the resident of the home while in the process of so ineptly pulling the caper.

As it is, I feel as apathetic toward The All Nighter as the main character does about her own life and actions.

They're fictional, I'm allowed to wish they'd get shot!

It doesn't have to be fatally, I guess.

Is that better?

I thought in crime books you aren't supposed to like the characters -- even the protagonists. Or if you do like them, it's secondary.
