Busiek: Is it Byoo-sick or Boo-see-ick?

Buscema: Boo-see-muh or Byoo-semma?

I'll give it a shot.

Busiek - IIRC it's pronounced Byoo-Zick.
Buscema is Byoo-simma
Sinkiewizc I think is pronounced like Senk-o-witz

Except that people always correct me, and say that you pronounce it about 93 different ways. I've been told by comic shop guys, professional nerdsters, and living-in-my-parents-basement geeks that it's pronounced Sanka-vitch, Sin-kay-o-vitch, Sanky-o-vitch, Sin-KEV-itch, SIN-kev-itch, Sink-o-witch, and just about any other way that you can think of. And they usually push their glasses down, stare at me over them, then push them back up and say, "Actually, you can use Google to find that it's pronounced..."

But thanks for your help.

I always hear Sienkiewicz pronounced "sing-kev-itch."
