He said he wouldn’t do it.
He said there was only one thing wrong with it.
Then…he re-read it.
And he realized there was indeed more wrong.
Wrong that stretched back even further than we thought, but most of it was right here. On this day.
For his 200th episode of Atop The Fourth Wall, Lewis Lovhaug, aka Linkara, tackled the most infamous Spider-Man storyline in comics, not only going over what they’ve screwed up but noticing an inherent flaw in how writers have been writing Peter Parker for years. This is a MUST view for any Spider-Fan, whether you agree with him or not. It’s not only his best review ever in my opinion, but the best take on why so many fans hate this story and what it’s done.
As a follow up, Linkara and fellow That Guy With The Glasses member The Last Angry Geek once took on the follow-up story, One Moment In Time. It’s a good companion piece to this review. Also, my RU colleague, the Cartoon Hero, did a tribute to Linkara and his influence on the Hero’s own series. Linkara may be my favorite reviewer but I’m not very good at tributes.
