Atop the Fourth Wall: No Pain Remains (Chapter 1)
1 Year Later
Harvey woke up after sleeping off a late-night gig he did the night before. He knew it took time away from his family, but he had to support them somehow. He walked into the kitchen and saw his wife sitting at the table. He walked over and kissed her.
“I love you.” he said.
“How was that gig last night? You’ve been out cold all morning.” she said.
“I know, but you know I have to take the gigs. The tours would be easier, but I don’t want to be away from you guys.” he said. “Where is Charlie anyway?”
“He’s in his room, playing video games.” she said.
Harvey went to Charlie’s room and knocked on the door. He heard the music of the game, which Harvey had to admit, was pretty catchy, and the door opened. Charlie was standing there and Charlie hugged him.
“Dad, seriously, what’s with all the affection? It’s been happening since you had that nightmare a few months ago.&

Atop The Fourth Wall: No Pain Remains
By: Michael Gleason (Black Scarab)
It was a normal day in Linkara’s apartment, 90’s Kid was playing Genesis, Linksano was doing an experiment and Linkara was writing the new episode. Harvey was sitting on the couch, playing Pokemon on his DS. He was close to beating the Pokemon League and was defeated just before he won. He sighed and put the game down. He turned to see Linkara at the computer rubbing his eyes.
“You okay kid?” Harvey asked.
“Yeah, this comic is just horrible.” Linkara replied.
“Well, you made this show about bad comics; it’s your own fault!” Harvey joked.
“I guess so. And you’ve seen me through a lot of them.” Linkara said.
Suddenly the doorbell rang. 90’s Kid ran to the door and looked out the peephole. He saw nothing.
“Dude, there’s no one there, think NIMUE is acting up again?” 90’s Kid asked.
“I don’t thin

So, I was enjoying myself living in the strange apartment building. I decided that the place wasn’t all that bad. The guy who I heard yelling in the hallway the day I moved in is Harvey Finevoice. He’s a lounge singer, and is a really nice guy. The guy who had locked the door on Harvey was 90’s Kid. He was also the one who blasts Nirvana at weird hours of the night. He’s pretty cool, but he’s perpetually stuck in the 90’s. The Linksano guy was once an evil mad scientist, but he’s a friend of Linkara’s now. The two guys that I saw as I was walking out of the building were Spoony and Dr. Insano. Spoony is a pretty cool guy, and he’s awesome at Tekken. Dr. Insano’s like Linksano, but slightly more unhinged.
All in all, it was a good choice deciding to live here. I became friends with Linkara, he’s the nicest person i

I was new in the neighborhood. I had been looking for an apartment in the Shoreview area of Minnesota. I had found a pretty good building in a pretty good part of the town. However, some of the tenants there were a bit odd. They all tried to warn me that there’s some comic book nerd that lives in the building and that he lived with some weird characters. For example, as I walked in to look at the apartment building, an old man came up to me and asked me the weirdest question ever.
“Do you like Nirvana?” he asked me.
“I guess, I’m not that much into 90’s grunge. Why?” I replied.
“Well, I assumed you’re looking at that apartment that just went up for rent. The guy next door to it plays a lot of Nirvana.” he said.
“Really? Are the other neighbors like that?” I asked.
“Nope, just that guy. He’s a reviewer on the internet or something, has like four room
