Jackson Publick Interview at io9

Over at io9 there's an interview with our beloved Jackson Publick by the indispensable Evan Narcisse. Along with some insights into the show and info on the long promised upcoming art book (which defintely exists!) there's also some previews from the book and a small amount of art from season seven.

But yeah, we grew this underground audience and yeah, nerd culture just exploded. So, it’s vindication and just knowing, "Okay, none of this is over anybody’s heads." And, you know, everybody had the internet anyway, so they can Wikipedia anything we mention. But that’s been kind of amazing. When we did the first live-action Tick, that was a big stumbling block. The network was like, "I don’t know about all this superhero stuff..." [Those reactions] are probably a bigger deal when you’re making a multi-million dollar show for a network, then your little late night cartoon for a largely stoner audience.

Great interview. And I'm super excited to finally get my copy of the book. 374 pages? wow.

Cool. I had a feeling the book would cover season 7 and be at least 350+ pages.
Simply for the fact it's been in production for about seven years.

And even though no date was given for season 7... it looks like production is totally done, at least according to one of the images.

I have a strong feeling VB7 will premiere towards the end of July or the beginning of August.

They'll want to push the new book and new season at SDCC, so it all makes sense.

Really a pleasure to read. Interesting to see Jackson's opinions and all the art. Definitely looking forward to the book and Season 7. That geodesic dome intrigues me.


Also, interesting to see the interviewer's view on current fan culture- never would have thought of it that way but I can see where he's coming from.

"for a largely stoner audience"? - Wait. I thought we were the sort of exception to that general stereotype of AS audiences. This show is just too detailed, involved and coherent for your average stoner audience. They just wouldn't be able to follow it and would get bored quickly as it has an actual plot line and continuity, unlike many other AS titles where new, dissociated stuff that makes no sense just seems to randomly happened every several minutes, or whatever the average attention span is of your basic stoner viewer. I am a bit disappointed with that inferral, but am still stoked for the art book and season 7, of course.

Yeah, I didn't understand that reference, maybe the accidental viewers? I do smoke weed, but not right before a new Venture Brothers. That's sober Sunday.

Yeah, he probably meant casual viewers that just keep it on Adult Swim all night and occasionally check out what's on. I know I'm usually doing something else while I'm watching TV.

Very good interview. I wasn't really interested in the art book before, but now it intrigues me. I'm more interested in the behind the scenes information that goes into their thought processes than the art itself. Looking forward to all the Venture Bros. stuff I can get my hands on. *gently pats my VB miniatures*

Fantastic interview and I just have to say, that poor zip-arounder.

*SIGH* The final shirt club package arrived today; the season is now truly over. They also included a Hankbuck for added poignancy. See you folks in two years or so.
