S14:E3 - Hero Alliance No. 16 (1991)

Night Shift

This time on the Couch: Mike, James, and Shée slip into something more comfortable to read Hero Alliance no. 16! The Dark Age of Comic Books was in full swing in 1991, and Hero Alliance aimed to be the perfect time capsule of grim 'n' gritty funnybook excess. Innovation Publishing made sure to include all of the era's biggest hits in one amazing package: Casual brutality, juvenile insults, billowy capes, and more bared teeth than a Doberman trying to eat corn on the cob. But no encapsulation of the times would be complete without multiple gratuitous sex scenes, designed to both titillate and disgustipate. A generation of repressed proto-incel comic book nerds salutes you, Hero Alliance! That's, uh... that's not something to be proud of, by the way.
