AfterShock Announces New Horror One-Shot ‘All Night & Every Day’

by Olly MacNamee

Writer Ray Fawkes, artist Andrea Frittella, colourist: Sara Colella and letterer: Matt Krotzer are collaborating on a new horror one-shot, One-Shot All Night & Every Day, from AfterShock Comics:

“It’s time to party! While celebrating is the last thing grief-stricken introvert Michaela wants to do, her friends drag her out for the night and end up trapping her in a hellish curse: a party that never ends, with no way to escape…not even by dying!  

Now she must navigate the labyrinth of the legendary Banquet Hideous all on her own and learn its terrible secrets before she is consumed forever!  

This horrifying new 48-page Prestige Format One Shock by acclaimed writer Ray Fawkes (Constantine, Gotham by Midnight, JACKPOT!) and sensational artist Andrea Frittella (Borgata Gordiani) will rock you to your core…eternally!”

As well as a first look we get some words from Fawkes on what the book is about:

“ALL NIGHT & EVERY DAY is a horror book about parties, and it’s for all the people who’ve ever found themselves stuck at a party they hated. Of course the party in this book is a very special kind of celebration – but I won’t spoil what that is before the book comes out! I’m excited because this is an idea I’ve been working on for quite some time, and it’s really something unique. Andrea Fritella has brought the story to jaw-dropping, stylish life, and I can’t wait for people to see it.”

He also names some influences behind this project:

“I mean, not that I want anyone I know to get upset with me, but almost every party I’ve ever been to had a part in shaping this book. Every time someone’s said “No, you have to stay” or I’ve thought “Isn’t there something better I should be doing with my time?” 

Artistically, the inspiration came from films by directors like Ari Aster and David Lowery, and books by JG Ballard.”

Finally, Fawkes give us three reasons to go pick up this one-shot:

“1) It’s possibly the best comic book of the year. You won’t know until you read it.

2) You HAVE to see Andrea Fritella’s artwork on this. He’s on his way to super-stardom, if there’s any justice in this business.

3) It’s not just a comic book. It’s a how-to-escape manual.”
