Web Video: Atop the Fourth Wall
"Hello, and welcome to 'Atop the Fourth Wall', where bad comics burn, good comics are praised, and ignorance and hatred are unwelcome."You'll find him here! And here! Here too! Also here (but no longer updated).
Meet Lewis Lovhaug's snarky alter ego, Linkara: an "eccentric" comic book fan who wears a Nice Hat
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 The Clone Saga
, 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 That Guy with the Glasses
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 Mystery Science Theater 3000
(and by extension, 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 Let's Play
of Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force
, starring the unfraggable Ensign Munro. He and Iron Liz
, his former girlfriend and occasional co-operator, also post vlogs of themselves playing Card Games
such as Yu-Gi-Oh!
and Sailor Moon
in You're Such a Card... Game!
He is currently producing the History of Power Rangers
series, in which he looks back at the franchise (ALL of it
) and gives a serious but very informal overview about its elementsnote
Apart from his work at Atop the Fourth Wall
Linkara has appeared in an episode of Yu-Gi-Oh! The Abridged Series
as well as provided a voice for Dragon Ball Abridged
. Linkara is not only a critic but also a writer, creator of the 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 The Spoony Experiment
, 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 cast page
