    *checks calendar*

    In which country is it Christmas today?  

    Thanks, guys! 

  2. DaveCarr DaveCarr says:

    That was a fascinating point about dialogue in comics. Seems obvious now, but I hadn’t thought of it before

  3. cman12 cman12 says:

    Awesome! What a great surprise. I will listen immediately.


  4. SonOfCann says:

    A great listen, very insightful.  Can’t wait to see where Incognito goes from here!

  5. It’s almost like his upcoming Marvels series is a continuation of his run on Captain America, with all the espionage behind the origins of the Marvel universe. I wasn’t going to pick it up, but now its definatly piqued my interest!

  6. drakedangerz drakedangerz says:

    Great interview!  Enjoyed it much

  7. hxcscarecrow hxcscarecrow says:

    Brubaker is a big fan of teleporters isnt he? second time he mentioned their awesomeness in an interview

  8. kwisdumb kwisdumb says:


  9. ohcaroline ohcaroline says:

    Great interview!

    Josh, I couldn’t help noticing that EB mentioned the role of a small dog in his creative process.  Maybe you and George can garner some inspiration from this!

  10. Josh Flanagan josh (@jaflanagan) says:

    It did cross my mind.

  11. AMuldowney AMuldowney says:

    Way to go with the Ted Leo! 


    You know, I comment on music more than just about anything else.  

  12. Paul Montgomery PaulMontgomery (@fuzzytypewriter) says:

    Great interview, guys.  

    I remember reading that Tarantino has a specific ritual when he starts a script where he has to get a certain kind of composition book and a red pen or something. 

    Ed, whenever you ultimately wrap up your run on Captain America, please publish your notebook. Love seeing stuff like that.   

  13. Josh Flanagan josh (@jaflanagan) says:

    I think that Tarantino material you’re thinking of is pot.

  14. Yeah, Paul, have you seen a Tarantino script? 

  15. Paul Montgomery PaulMontgomery (@fuzzytypewriter) says:

    I will no longer be sharing my anecdotes with you ingrates.  

  16. leigh leigh says:

    the secret word for this interview is "ya’know"

    I stopped the interview in the middle and when i restarted he said ya’know 3 times in 5 words and from that point it was all i could hear.

    I now know why sometimes text interviews are better ya’know 

  17. Dammit Leigh, now that’s all I’ll hear.

  18. ohcaroline ohcaroline says:

    Ed Brubaker will no longer be sharing his anecdotes with you ingrates.

    Ya know?

  19. Josh Flanagan josh (@jaflanagan) says:

    He smokes a lot of pot!  it’s not a secret!

  20. edward says:

    good work boys, excellent interview

     now, seriously, brubaker sounds like he is stoned constantly, every time i hear him interviewed.

    " heyy, soo, yeah, it’s like, if, like you could teleport, man, than, you know…. "

  21. Paul Montgomery PaulMontgomery (@fuzzytypewriter) says:

    Does great work and clearly cares about his craft. That’s all I care about.  

  22. ohcaroline ohcaroline says:

    Are we talking about Brubaker or Tarantino, now?

  23. Josh Flanagan josh (@jaflanagan) says:

    I was talking about Tarantino. It was a damned joke!

  24. ohcaroline ohcaroline says:

    Ha ha, sorry, I just lost the thread of the discussion in there.

  25. edward says:

    no, no. i mean Brubaker. total stoner

  26. ohcaroline ohcaroline says:

    I really don’t think Ed smokes pot!  He’s just that committed to teleportation!

  27. @ohcaroline

    It’s okay, we’ve all smoked pot. Some just stick with it.
  28. To be honest; Brubaker doing a Jughead comic is something I would totally buy. Even if it’s straight up serious on a guy who just eats too many hamburgers.

    @miyamoto: Not me man, probably the safest person you’ll ever know. If your talking about soda though…

  29. edward says:

    hmmm….. i still think he sounds like he’s ripped off his tits

  30. wayne2001bc wayne2001bc says:

    great interview.  But do I really care about his political views (i.e. he said he believes most conservatives are evil)?  No.  Would rather just hear about comics.

  31. CronyC CronyC says:

    Great interview guys! I woulc also buy Jughead comics if Brubaker wrote them lol.

    Also Angel Of Death should be on itunes since I cant fracking stream it here [Canada].

  32. Turns out Ed Brubaker is full of crap for saying 7 million people have watched Angel of Death.  That’s been debunked here:  


  33. Jim Mroczkowski Jimski (@jimski) says:

    The article doesn’t so much say "full of crap" as it says "misspoke," but whatever.

    How many people are watching your show?

  34. Burn!
