San Diego Comic-Con 2012: The Venture Bros.
It's that time of the year again, kids! Time to wait in line for a couple hours before shuffling into a massive ballroom to see Jackson and Doc crack jokes and tell you about Venture Bros. for not nearly as long as you waited. Still totally worth it. This year expect to hear about the imminent season five (tentatively set to premiere in early 2013) along with the even more imminent Halloween special (set to premiere this fall) as well as whatever else.
As always, The Mantis-Eye Experiment hopes to provide convention goers with a schedule of all the happening Venture Bros. events, be they official Adult Swim-sanctioned events, fan-run things, merchandise-buying opportunities or just some panel that happens to have Patrick Warburton on it. Keep an eye on this page since schedule changes or new events sometimes pop up. Enjoy!
Update 7/12/2012 - Sadly James Urbaniak is unable to attend due to a scheduling conflict, so he's been crossed off the schedule.
Booths of Interest
The Adult Swim Booth - Booth #3949. This is where all the Adult Swim stuff will be happening (aside from panels). Depending on what's going on they may give away some stuff there or try and sell you some similar stuff. Last year this was where you went to get invited to the Venture Bros. costume party, but it doesn't look like that's happening this year. If you hang around for the entire convention you can get lots of stuff signed
The Entertainment Earth Booth - Booth #2343. If you're looking for official Venture Bros. merchandise then look no further. Not only will the EE booth have all the Mego-style usual action figures, but they'll be selling both versions of the 3 3/4" Brock Samson figure! You can be among the first to grab one! Very exciting! You can get them signed! Even more exciting! Probably other stuff!

Venture Bros. Panel
|Who?||Jackson Publick, Doc Hammer
|When?||11:00am - 12:00pm|
|Where?||Hilton Bayfront Indigo Ballroom|
|Info:||It's the yearly Venture Bros. panel! What will this one hold? Nobody knows! There might not be a clip or a preview (or maybe there will be?!), but at least Doc Hammer and Jackson Publick have been writing scripts recently unlike last SDCC where they were mostly just going on vacations around the world. Will they tell you stuff about the upcoming season? No. No they won't. Will they be hilarious and have a lot of tangential things to say? Rest assured. Convention panels are like listening to the DVD commentary except there are audience members there to ask dumb questions.
