Storyline

Linkara is a witty, sarcastic young adult who reviews comic books of very poor detail, ranging from bad artwork to bad writing. Occasionally, characters from the comics as well as the comics themselves come to life and terrorize Linkara. Not only that, but other-worldly creatures often invade his house and try to take him hostage. He survives it all using his vast knowledge of comics and their many faults. Written by Anonymous

This has really gone downhill.
10 December 2018 | by Java_JoeSee all my reviews

I remember when Lewis had started doing his comic book reviews. There was actual care put into the reviews because there were actual reviews. he would talk about the comic book. He'd talk about the artist or the panels. He'd actually comment on what was going on and give a genuine review. But as time went on, and his fan base started growing the reviews started getting less insightful and more insufferable. Instead of talking about the comments he'd just make a snide comment about a panel or do a bit of a riff on it.

And then came the skits. They started small but eventually grew into arcs that lasted an entire season. It started be less about the comic books and more about Lewis' Mary Sue insert called Linkara. Such a cool guy. He's not only got a magic gun, morpher, Star Trek weapons but robots and a bloody spaceship. Yes you heard me right, he's got a spaceship. This is because he's supposed to be the hero of this reality. He's fought evil space warlords, missing numbers, pyramid head and other nonsensical beings.

I honestly gave up on this show a long time ago.
