->"''Hello, and welcome to ''Atop the Fourth Wall'', where bad comics burn, good comics are praised, and ignorance and hatred are unwelcome.''"

[[http://atopthefourthwall.com/ You'll find him here!]] [[http://atopfourthwall.tumblr.com Here, as well!]] [[https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCejehlk5eLZlzgGP1rUx8kw Don't forget here!]] [[http://atopfourthwall.blogspot.com/ Also here (but no longer updated).]]

Meet Creator/LewisLovhaug's snarky alter ego, Linkara: an "eccentric" comic book fan who wears a NiceHat and reviews horrible comics. He started out writing text reviews of various comics on his blog ''Atop the Fourth Wall''. However, when doing a three part review on ''Smoke and Mirrors'', one of the low points of ''ComicBook/TheCloneSaga'', he decided to finish off with a video review as an experiment. This new format turned out to be popular with his readers (and easier on him), so he continued to make videos. Eventually, he ended up joining Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses and has had many cameos in, and several crossovers with, a few of That Guy With The Glasses characters and their series. Lovhaug is also a major ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' (and by extension, Podcast/{{Rifftrax}}) fan and will often make numerous references to the show, either in clips, quotes, or general joke style.

In addition to his reviews of bad comics he has also completed a LetsPlay of ''[[VideoGame/StarTrekEliteForce Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force]]'', starring the unfraggable Ensign Munro. He and WebVideo/IronLiz, his former girlfriend and occasional co-operator, also post vlogs of themselves playing CardGames such as ''TabletopGame/YuGiOh'' and ''Anime/SailorMoon'' in [[PunBasedTitle You're Such a Card... Game!]] He also has another ongoing lets play of the fan made Pokémon game ''VideoGame/PokemonZetaAndOmicron'' that can be found [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jiigx-FF8qY&list=PLxCy3y2-ZD2EVe5-IbFVRf7nBVgI0GfVa here.]]

He is currently producing the ''WebVideo/HistoryOfPowerRangers'' series, in which he looks back at the franchise ([[ArchivePanic ALL]] [[LongRunners of it]]) and gives a serious but very informal overview about its elements[[note]]it had no set schedule for the longest time, but after he earned a substantial amount on Patreon, he gave it a schedule, typically 4-5 months between each release.[[/note]]

Apart from his work at ''Atop the Fourth Wall'' Linkara has appeared in an episode of ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' as well as provided a voice for ''WebVideo/DragonBallAbridged''. Linkara is not only a critic but also a writer, creator of the webcomic ''{{Webcomic/Lightbringer}}'', several graphic collections in the ''Angel Armor'' series, and indie title ''Revolution of the Mask''. His most prolific co-operator is Spoony of WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment, with frequent crossovers, guest-stars and stories interchanged between the two shows.

In addition to our intrepid reviewer, [=AT4W=] features a wide gallery of recurring characters who are profiled on the [[Characters/AtopTheFourthWall cast page]].

The series does have a plot, and for those looking for a medium-sized summary of the plot from an outside source, find a plot guide [[http://at4wplotguide.tumblr.com/ here]]. Has a Wikia [[http://at4w.wikia.com/wiki/AT4W_Wiki here]]. The plot also how has a [[Recap/AtopTheFourthWall Recap page]].

Lovhaug announced in April 2014 that he is working on ''Atop the Fourth Wall: TheMovie''. The IndieGoGo page can be found [[https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/atop-the-fourth-wall-the-movie here.]] The movie was released online in five parts the last week of November 2015 (coinciding with Thanksgiving). The entire film can be viewed from [[https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLxCy3y2-ZD2HtXzR-mBEKPoc7x2dpK2HU this YouTube playlist]].

In May 2014, he launched his new website, http://atopthefourthwall.com, effectively replacing his [=BlogSpot=] page.
