Skeleton Realm Magazine was created in 2022 by Doug Bleichner and Sam Wagstaff. In 2015, the two produced a one-off, 14-page, black and white print zine called Skeleton Times, which featured cartoons drawn by T. Lee Gunselman titled, "Spanky's Circus" and "Funny Farm". After the acquisition of Skeleton Realm by MeMoreTV in 2020, Bleichner and Wagstaff were tasked by MeMoreTV executives to revisit the idea of producing a leisure zine for fans of Skeleton Realm. After several meetings, Skeleton Realm Magazine was born.
