Shirt Club Version Two Is A Go!

As Jackson has announced via various means, the long promised second iteration The Amazing Shirt Of The Week Club has launched. Similar to the season three version, this one brings one brand spankin' new tshirt per episode (nine in total) along with the subscriber exclusive shirt which you can see right now (in five glorious colors). Each shirt will go for $20 shipped (or $22 for you 2XL folks) or you can fork over $165 right now ($180 for 2XL) and get the whole set of ten. I minored in math in college so I can safely tell you that is a cost of $16.50 per shirt, or a savings of $3.50 per tshirt over the a la cart price.

Subscriptions will only be available until 11:59pm EST on June 7th, and after that you'll have to pay full price like a chump (and miss out on the subscriber exclusive), so you'd better get on that. Head on over to the Astrobase Go! website to learn more!

Popdose Interview With Jackson and Doc

In what is sure to be the first of many pre-season V promos, Popdose has an interview with Jackson and Doc that covers some info on season five as well as the usual brand of tangental jokes we've come to love from Jackson and Doc. There's also a little bit of information about the new Shirt Club, though nothing specific just yet beyond the number of colors in each shirt. There's also an accidental secret revealed, but I'll leave it up to you to find that one out. Also some info on how to suggest ideas for the show. Namely, don't do it:

DH: I never read them. I have a form letter that I send back that explains it's not going to happen. At best it'll mirror something that I did and you'll be running around screaming about how it was your idea, and at worst I now cannot do my idea. And also the psychology of, "Alright, I know you guys write a show that I like so I know that you can do it, but let me just give you…," you just gotta stop that. You gotta trust that we have more ideas. I promise we have more ideas.

JP: And usually the idea makes you go, "I can’t believe you even like our show if this is your idea. Like, you seem to think this is a superhero show about Triana [Orpheus]! 'We think it would be really good if Triana got super powers!'" What are you watching?

Enjoy! Thanks to reader Hank for pointing this out in the comments.

An Even Newer Season V Promo

Oh, you thought that those last two were the only promos? You silly billy. Enjoy a third Season V promo with brand new footage. June 2nd! Many thanks to ZJS in the comments for pointing this out to me.

Journal of Venture Studies: Volume Two

Way back in February the first volume of the Journal of Venture Studies was released, and now volume two is ready for your consumption! This one includes five scholarly articles ranging from thoughts on how HELPeR might work to how the show handles sexuality and much more. There's also an excellent piece written by Mantis-Eye regular ZJS called "In Defense of Hatred" that I highly recommend. Enjoy volume two!

Season 5 Premiere: "What Color Is Your Cleansuit?"

For those of you waiting on season V of Venture Bros. I have one new bit of information for you. The premiere, hour long episode (June 2nd at midnight, be there or be square) is called "What Color Is Your Cleansuit?" I made sure to confirm it with series creator Jackson Publick (just in case it was a working title), so feel free to tell all your friends, relatives, co-workers and random people on the street. Tweet it, Facebook it, uh, Tumbl it? Pinterest it. What is even the verb for Pinterest? Anyway, get it out there!

In related news, Adult Swim has revamped the Venture Bros. section of their site, which includes the usual videos and clips, but also a swank new Relationship Action Map which you can use to figure out which character relates to others. It's also almost certain to get more and more obsolete as season five progresses, but for now it should have all the info you need.

(New) Venture Bros. Season V Promos

Hot on the heels of the last two May 19th promos being removed, Adult Swim has put together two replacement promos using brand new footage. Season 5 is now Season V (pronounced 'vee'). Sure, why not? The first promo lists off a million characters who may or may not appear in the new season and the second one is more sizzle reel in nature. You heard me.

And the second one:

Remember, season 5 starts at midnight on Sunday, June 2nd. That's technically June 3rd, just so there's no confusion, but you'll be ending your June 2nd with it. Unless you work a late shift somewhere. Then it's your morning cartoons. Either way.

Season 5 Shirt Club Is A Go!

This was mentioned back during convention season, but Jackson finally confirmed it in the comments of his LiveJournal:

"As for Shirt Club--that's gonna happen. The designs are all done, they're super-cool, and we're working out the logistical details now."

Obviously no other details provided just yet, but I'm sure we'll hear some more info in the weeks leading up to the premiere.

The Venture Brothers: The Story So Far

IGN has an eight-or-so minute video up that summarizes the entire series, narrated by Henchman 21, aka Gary. Needless to day if you aren't caught up on all the episodes you shouldn't watch it. However if you are caught up but have just forgotten everything (or just need a refresher) then you should check it out:

Thanks to a mysterious person for posting it in the comments.

Season 5 Delayed Until June 2nd

According to a post over on Adult Swim's Facebook page the season premiere of Venture Bros. season 5 has been delayed two weeks until June 2nd. While they don't give a specific reason I'm sure we can all agree it's because Jackson, Doc and company are toiling away tirelessly on the show and working late nights to bring everyone a quality production. So let's try not to be too annoyed! Just think of what you can do with those extra two weeks. You could learn a new craft, like basket weaving or pottery. You could learn to play an instrument. You could paint a self-portrait. See, that wasn't so bad, was it?

As the saying goes: Venture Bros. season 5 premieres on Sunday, June 2nd at midnight (eastern/pacific) on Adult Swim.

Poker Night 2 Release Dates

For those of you interested in Telltale's upcoming Poker Night 2 (starring Brock Samson and some other guys/dogs/robots) the studio announced the release dates for various platforms today via a series of tweets.

It's a month old but there's not much news here for two years at a time, so whatever :) https://www.denofgeek.com/us/tv/the-venture-bros/281421/the-venture-bros-season-8-jackson-publick-doc-hammer

Okay, Venturoos. Here's what ya get for the Extras, at least on the DVD version. I felt it was a little light, but that's just my opinion. Deleted Scenes (as always) - Some are B&W sketches with the dialog, others are animated with the dialog. Ghost in the Pro-Blem - An extended view of the distorted images of events from the Pro-BLEM's point of view. Maybe there are some clues hidden in it if you like frame-by-frame advancing. Maybe not. Sirena Goes Off... - Cristin Milioti ad-libbing way more dialog than the script calls for. Poor Rocco. Promo - Basically the season 7 promo. Maybe there's Easter Eggs to find. I haven't done any extensive searching yet. If anyone finds any feel free to post them here!
