Added DiffLines:

* TheArtifact: The series iconic intro song was done by a fan, and this tends to show as the song references gags that faded from the series quite early (such as Gary Brodsky, an early target on the show who was almost brought up again) or elements of the show that Lewis stopped using (most notably the continuity alarm).

** When Linkara went back and reviewed ''Tales of Suspense #39'' for Secret Origins Month, he explains that he held off on doing it in mainstream Marvel comic reviews because in those, [[DudeNotFunny Tony's alcoholism was treated as a serious thing]][[{{In-universe}} ,]] leading up to "Demon in a Bottle" where he ultimately rectified that. [[RuleOfFunny And then Linkara proceeds to bring it back with the rationalization that]] [[LoopholeAbuse "Demon in a Bottle" hadn't happened yet in Tony's life.]] That said, he has said he wouldn't do it for a post-"Demon in the Bottle" Tony and has kept true to his word.

** During the Holokara arc, Linkara suggests with some reluctance that he plans to seek [[WebVideo/SuburbanKnights Malachite]] for help with his [[spoiler: Magic Gun going offline]]. Malachite never even appears and Linkara ends up seeking someone else's advice instead.

Added DiffLines:

** He's weirded out by the rather [[SeriousBusiness overwrought]] condemnation of carjacking as "terrorism" and "a national disgrace" in ''Thunderstrike #1" and makes several digs about it throughout the review. However, carjacking had spiked significantly shortly before the comic came out, to the point where ''Congress'' started passing legislation addressing it. What seems like a bizarre case of FelonyMisdemeanor to a modern viewer would have been quite topical for a contemporary reader.

** A couple of moments in ''Ultimatum'' #1 & #2 were actually pretty funny, but were not enough to save the comic.
*** He also points out that while the jokes themselves are funny, they happen during pretty dark moments, making them inappropriate.

Added DiffLines:

** Despite overall heavily panning ''Nova Girls: Kissing Canvas'', calling it in some ways ''worse'' than ''Bimbos in Time'' due to it actually having effort put into it, he points out there are a few genuinely funny moments, [[DamnedByFaintPraise though only about one per ten pages]].

** He decided that the "Tandy Computer Whiz Kids" were police plants, and supports this in that the police actually listen to them when they kids call to tell them that they saw some criminals, which any real world cops would dismiss as prank call.

** According to the "Tandy Computer Whiz Kids: Fit to Win" comic, the first all-electronic computers were made in America, not England as Linkara pointed out in his "Top 15 Screw-Ups". When the piece of trivia pops up again in the crossover with Superman and Wonder Woman, Linkara deduces that the statement was a bold-faced lie.

** At the start of the video for ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'', Linkara used part of the EpicInstrumentalOpener of the song [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CFZ_Uyqbr4k "Sacred Worlds"]] by Music/BlindGuardian during the title card. For the one of ''ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis'', the same song is used for that video's title card, only with some of the actual lyrics instead.

** More a case of "Actually Pretty Good", he admits ''{{Spawn}} #1'' is probably one of the better things to come out of early Image Comics. (And unlike most comics he reviews, he sets it down gently instead of throwing it onto the couch.)
