According to his MySapce blog, Ed Brubaker will be on NPR talking about Captain America tomorrow at 5:25am, 7:25am, 9:25am and 11:25am EST.
NPR usually posts these segments to their websites after they have aired. Just go to NPR.ORG and search for Brubaker tomorrow if you dont catch it on air.
Hopefully Rene Montaine will pronounce his name right this time. I remember hearing him on a morning drive and hearing his name pronounced “brew-backer”. Cringeworthy.
I wouldn’t think “brubaker” is that uncommon a name that people would get the pronounciation wrong.
I have been pronouncing it Brew-Baker for years. I’m guessing that’s wrong. But at least I’ll find out tomorrow!

“Wie gruen so gruen in Spanien bluehten blueh.” nasty pass, mon sewer?
Bru-baker is correct. Bru-backer is wrong. Unless I’ve been mispronouncing it all these years. Ed?
The one that got me, growing up, was Buscema. I thought it HAD to be Bus-seeema. Just had to be.
But, Beuuu-scemmma? uh.
And Toth, well, how hard could that one have been? Apparently it however rhymes with both, not cloth.
NPR covers Captain America … again?
I wonder if mainstream media will notice that most of these “events” are relatively insignificant, and wisely return to ignoring comic books.
I think Brubaker fans should start calling themselves “Bru Backers”.
Hey, is Sam Henderson going to cash in on Ed Brubaker’s popularity with a “The Brube” collection?
Oh wow, I always thought it was guy min.
