Atop the Fourth Wall is a web series which started on November 29, 2008, on ThatGuyWithTheGlasses.com and stars comic fan and author, Lewis Lovhaug as his pseudonym Linkara, as he reviews comic books of poor quality.

About the Show

Origin

The series started as a text recap series on Linkara's personal blog on Blogspot.com and moved onto videos after Linkara created a short video for the Ask That Guy With the Glasses contest, where people had to create answers to specific questions. Liking making videos so much, he decided to create videos where he would critique really bad comics. It wasn't long after that that the show was created. The theme song is by VincentEL who won the contest to find a theme song for the show. By the summer of 2010, Linkara's girlfriend, Iron Liz became a fixture on the show.

Also, because the show has had several plots, here is a complete guide by Robyn_The_Red for those who wish to catch up/follow along: AT4W Plot Guide

Running Gags

Starting with the review of "Superman At Earth's End," Linkara had been shouting "I am a man!" in reference to the character shouting the same lines. Another running gag includes the use of a buzzer called the "Continuity Alarm" where a buzzer sounds every time Linkara mentions the back story of a comic or goes into the history of a character that wasn't present in previous episodes. Beginning with the Sinnamon review, Linkara would say "Because poor literacy is kewl!" whenever something is misspelled and the editor of the comic never caught it, or it is intentional. Case in point: In the "Newmen #1" review, a character is named Byrd as opposed to Bird. He also has a joke making fun of every conspiracy theory that says ancient Egypt is evil.

See LinkaraGags for more information

Cameos

The show has cameos from other members of the TGWTG staff. Most notably when Linkara reviews two part comics. For a full list, please see: Cameos.
