At his Myspace Blog, CAPTAIN AMERICA killer The Brub describes what it’s like to be in the middle of a media firestorm:
I did about ten interviews today, with more scheduled tomorrow. I was on two NPR shows – or at least I will be when they air. I’m on the Morning Edition tomorrow (Thursday) and I’ll be on On the Media this weekend. I also got called up by an afternoon drivetime radio show from the DC area – the Don and Mike show — and did a really funny interview. Apparently they called up Patton Oswalt to get his reaction, and he suggested they call me, and so I ended up on “drivetime” which was awesome. I even found a way to slip in a mention of Criminal.
The weirdest thing is, when I came out of the interview booth at NPR, a few of the staffers had actually run to the nearest comic shop and bought copies of Cap 25 to get me to sign them. That was very nice, and really overwhelming.
Not so overwhelming is the amount of people who called me an asshole and said I sucked and that I should be fired, etc, etc, etc. No death threats as of yet, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
Anyway, now that I didn’t get any work done today, I have to stay up half the night making up for lost time.
I’ll be at WWLA next weekend, but I will be carrying, so everyone better keep their distance.
