S16:E8 - Skeleton Warriors No. 1 (1995)

This time on the Couch: Mike, James, and Shée exhume 1995's Skeleton Warriors no. 1! Published months after the cancellation of the cartoon show, Marvel's adaptation only served to further divide Americans on the topic of Skeleton rights and has been rightfully shunned ever since. In the first issue, the evil Baron Dark is creating an army of bone soldiers to steal a magical gemstone that will raise his credit score or something. His methods and intentions aren't entirely clear, but at least he's having a lot of fun with his work, which is a heck of a lot more than you can say about your job, so maybe put a sock in that judgmental attitude. Opposing him are the skin-loving Legion of Light, who claim to be fighting for justice but are probably just jealous that the Skeleton Warriors' costumes are way more metal. It's a clash for the ages, or at least for about 20 pages!
