    Direct/Off #4- Halloween (1978) v. Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

    Happy Halloween! It's time to start... what's that? Oh. I'm sorry, my producer has just handed me a note saying Halloween was actually over a week ago. My bad. Well, either way, we hope you enjoy this episode of Direct/Off. It's a little different than our past episodes, and indeed things will be a bit different from now on, but the fun will always continue.

    Reissue #7: Bride of Roomba

    A NOTE FROM THE BOYS: Hey sorry everyone, this week due to some technical difficulties and scheduling issues we just couldn't make it happen. That said here is an old favorite where instead of a comic book character we accidentally make a horror movie. Anyway, enjoy!

    Hey did you guys hear something? Wait, what happened to that vacuum salesman? Guys I think the vacuuming is coming from inside the house! Quick, lockdown the house and hide in the closet with me. To keep calm we can discuss The Olive Garden reviews, buying a driver’s license, and vacuum crimes.

Potato Lady Bex ,

My heroes!

Such a unique concept! I love it. The hosts use a new headline each episode to invent a superhero or supervillain. They come up with everything from backstory, to costume, to comic book cover. It’s funny and enthralling as you go along with them through their creative process.

Hero I've been holding out for

Headline heroes is a hilarious look at the world of comics. I really apperciate the unique format of the show where they focus more on the creative above everything else. Keep up the great show Drew, Nate, and Tanner!

Comic building...Nuff said!

I love the concept of this show.
So easy to find a comic based podcast,
But to have one world building each episode and just being creative.
