Oh, Atop the Fourth Wall
. My gateway drug to superhero comics, and constant source of emotionally gut-punching made-for-the-Internet storylines.
I originally submitted this to the Linkara Fans
tumblr about a month back. Because I'm lazy, I'm copy+pasting my explanation
for this:I was really behind on AT4W until recently. Really behind. “Stopped watching in October due to thesis stuff” behind. So, I decided to catch up over the past week. And once I got to Harvey’s Christmas Carol storyline…well, damn, that got to me.
And for some reason, I was inspired to draw Linkara and Harvey as another pair of comic-related badasses, the older of which treats the younger like a surrogate kid: Scandal Savage and Bane from Gail Simone’s
Secret Six. (Okay, it’s not a perfect analogy, but I still couldn’t resist)
Lewis, Gail, you guys have warped my mind. I hope everyone’s happy.
Now, I wonder who would be Ragdoll in this analogy…
