** ''JLA Act of God'' was absolutely rife with this, and Linkara continually calls out the writers on the hamfisted monologuing during his review.

** His most frequent and fruitful collaborations are with [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony]]: They have made four (five if you count their review with WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic) full appearances together, physically in the same room and everything, and have even advanced storylines in each other's videos. [[MadScientist Dr. Insano]] was introduced in an WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall video as part of a [[PreviouslyOn parody sequence]], and the whole Mechakara saga began as the result of their first crossover, largely written by Spoony. Fandom tends to depict the two creators as HeterosexualLifePartners.

** Has with the Silent Hill comics in spades, whose unlikable characters to Linkara flat-out not giving a shit as to what happens in the story. To a lesser extent, he seems to have this somewhat with the ComicBook/UltimateMarvel universe with its superhero characters generally not being very likable, though in that case he says he simply doesn't like the Ultimate Marvel universe but doesn't say it's bad.
** He also feels this way in regards to post OMD Spiderman.
** This trope is one of his biggest criticisms of "current" comics. He feels that the increased amounts of DarkerAndEdgier content (villains being more evil, heroes being more anti-heroic) is to the medium's detriment. In addition he takes issue with the belief that "[[SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids darker equals more mature]]," feeling that a comics tone shouldn't be that big an indicator of quality. He even admits that this is why he doesn't review modern comics as much, as while other decades have wide varieties of bad, his criticisms for current books would just end up with him repeating himself and making his own show hard to care about.

** Harvey Finevoice also got more screentime during the December 2012 reviews.



* DeathIsCheap: Despite not liking characters getting killed in stories, he admits that for mainstream heroes death is no big deal when he brings up the death of the Human Torch in his Brain Drain review, and comments that he'll be dead for a year at most before coming back, and each member of the Fantastic Four has died at least once. However, he also points out how this trope does not always come into play, especially for non-superhero supporting characters, when discussing his rage over the death of Lian Harper in Cry For Justice.

* AbortedArc: In 2011 Linkara reviewed the first issue of Malibu's ''[[ComicBook/MalibuComicsStreetFighter Steet Fighter]]'' comic. He mentioned that he'd review the other to issues at a later date. Unlike other comics he reviews however, the comics were not reviewed again on the show. As mentioned in his IDW ''My Little Pony'' comic review, some fans expressed disapointment in the review due to Linkara not being intimately familiar with the source material.

* AscendedExtra: Pollo the Robot started out as a BrickJoke in his Amazons Attack review to illustrate that "not even robots can handle" the bad comic. However, since then Pollo has become a ''very'' important character on ''Atop the Fourth Wall'', more so even than Burton himself on the ''Experiment''. He appears to have taken on the on-screen role of Linkara's producer. The prop itself was a puppet made for the [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST3K]] fan-vid he made in high school and was used as Lewis even said in his "Origins" VLOG that he was concerned that people would see it as derivative of Spoony's Burton (indeed, many assume Pollo was created to be an Expy of Burton).

* AllThereInTheManual: Linkara complains about this tendency in big crossover events and [[TheUltimates non-crossover events]]. He feels that, though there is nothing wrong with a big event having extra features in other comics, if they are a ''requirement'' for a full understanding of the event then they are not "extra" at all and, as such, should be included in the main title. It reaches its nadir in ''SilentHill Dead/Alive'', where the author neglected to put several important plot points and character motivations into the story itself, forcing readers to comb through the opening descriptions of what happened in each previous issue to have any hope of following the story...and then these sections were removed from the trade edition.
