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 also has another ongoing lets play of the fan made Pokémon game Pokémon Zeta and Omicron that can be found here.
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.
Lovhaug announced in April 2014 that he is working on Atop the Fourth Wall: The Movie. The Indie Go Go page can be found 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 this YouTube playlist.
In May 2014, he launched his new website, http://atopthefourthwall.com, effectively replacing his BlogSpot page.
