The Journal of Venture Studies

A while back I posted a poll asking what sorts of things you guys would like to see from the site during the (long) offseason and the clear winner was articles about the show. Of course I failed to deliver on this (though I did make an attempt or two) so for those of you waiting for all kinds of awesome Venture Bros. analysis, I point you towards The Journal of Venture Studies:

Volume I of JoVS -- now available online -- examines a diverse range of topics, including an exegesis on the theme of "failure" in the series, and the flavor of the Red Mocho Kooler.

Also for those of you itching to write some sort of Venture-related essay or whatever else, they are currently accepting submissions for the next volume, which is due out in April (proposals are due by March 14th):

The Journal of Venture Studies currently has an open call for submissions to Volume II of JoVS -- to be released in April 2013 in collaboration with the good people of Adult Swim.

Many thanks to Katie for pointing this out to me.

Venture Bros. Season 5 Premieres May 19th!

Since this has now been confirmed by multiple sources, it would seem safe to make a non-rumored update! Season 5 of Venture Bros. starts on Sunday, May 19th! This is, of course, subject to change, but it's in line with everything we've heard from production so far, so I think it's safe to start scheduling premiere parties and such. Rejoice!

You can also watch the bump below thanks to Bump Worthy.

Dr. Girlfriend Travel Mug and Water Bottle By BifBangPow!

If the recently released Venture Bros. retro travel mug wasn't enough to whet your appetite and you also happen to be a fan of pink items then BifBangPow! is probably your favorite company right now. Just added to the site are two Dr. Girlfriend themed items which can hold a beverage of your choice: Both of these are coming in May 2013 but you can pre-order them right now if you want.

Rumor Mill: Venture Bros. Season 5 Starts May 19th

I haven't found an online version of it on Bump Worthy yet, so I can't confirm it, but I'm hearing that Adult Swim aired a bump last night stating that season five of Venture Bros. would begin on May 19th which is inline with what Jackson said in December. If anyone has a video or screengrab or even independent confirmation of the bump, please post here in the comments or let me know directly.

Update: Got some confirmations via Twitter, so looks like we're in business.

Venture Bros. Season 5 Possibly Starts Between March and May

If yesterday's collection of holiday joy wasn't enough, Jackson has a meatier update up on his LiveJournal which includes even more never-before-seen screen grabs but also a nice chunk of info on the (lack of) Christmas song, when the new season starts, how progress on is going on season 5 and just what Jackson thinks of all the episodes (hint: it's awesome).

Since we're idiots who decided to write and produce our hour-long premiere episode last, we can't start airing until the last episode is finished. I don't currently know exactly when our premiere date is. I've heard it could be as soon as mid-March or as late as early May, but we're racing to get that premiere special done in time for March.

And now that I've seen all of the episodes in one form or another, I can truthfully say it's going to be a great season. The crew in every department of the production really stepped up their game (and new crew members brought new game)--the show's never looked or sounded better. And as writers, Doc and I hit a really great, confident stride that, I think, combines some of the best qualities of seasons past with a uniquely season 5 freshness. A good mix of new characters and old (some of which haven't been seen in quite a while), high adventure in exotic locations and internal strife on the home front. You will like it!

So head on over to read the whole thing and continue your anticipation.

Jackson Has Some Late Christmas Presents For You

Sadly it's not a new Christmas tune but it is a couple of images from season 5 of Venture Bros.! Head over to Jackson's Tumblr to check them out. Let the speculating begin!

Also for those of you hoping for a Christmas song, I hate to be the bringer of bad news but there won't be one this year. Too many things to do at the end of the year and not enough free time. Jackson did say they hope to revive the tradition next year but for now you'll have to settle for the promise of new episodes instead. Happy New Year!

Buy! Sell! Happy Holidays!

In what is sure to be a massive hit, this year's Mantis-Eye Holiday-themed Giveaway is now live! For those of you who remember the previous holiday giveaways, they're always accompanied by some sort of game that makes it either fun or excruciating to participate, depending on your perspective. This year is no different as I am pleased to present The Mantis-Eye Holiday Stock Market Giveaway! In this game you buy shares of each of the five prizes and attempt to get the most shares of your favorite prizes. The more shares you have, the better your chances of winning that prize are. The page explains it in greater detail, but the main thing you need to know is I guess that greed is good? Does that sound right? It's one notion we want to promote during the holidays, for sure. Anyway, head over to the contest page for more info and to enter yourself. And have a great holiday of choice! Or none at all, I don't even care! Either way, good luck!

Adult Swim Gear in Team Fortress 2

For those of you who may enjoy a video game or two, Team Fortress 2 is one you can play free of charge but supported by in-game transactions. The game's maker, Valve Software, and Adult Swim have announced Adult Swim gear for TF2 which includes not one but two Venture Bros. themed items. Check out the preview page for a closer look, but the items will be Brock's hair for the Heavy and a Monarch Henchman getup for the Scout. For now it's the closest we'll get to a Venture Bros. video game.

Extremely Late Mantis-Eye 2012 Holiday Gift Guide

I'm super tardy on the gift guide this year, but the real fact of the matter is that new Venture Bros. stuff has been hard to come by the last year. Adult Swim closed their shop so there's no really weird, fun stuff. It was also an off-season year for the show, so no new DVDs or anything. The BifBangPow! 3 3/4" Brock figure did come out, and they released a sweet travel mug as well, so of course those are on it. If you're still looking to buy something for that Venture fan in your life, and somehow they don't already own all this stuff, check out Mantis-Eye 2012 Holiday Gift Guide!

Pre-Order The Shoreleave and The Alchemist Two-Pack

If you're super into BifBangPow!'s Venture Bros. Mego-style figures then you'll be pleased to know there's another set for you to throw money at. Everyone's favorite on-again-off-again couple, Shoreleave and The Alchemist! As usual it's $37.99 for the two figures and they're projected to ship in May, though that date often gets pushed back. Not necessarily something you want to get someone for this upcoming Christmas (or your own holiday of preference) since it'll be five months late, but maybe a nice little gift for yourself this spring, because you're worth it. You know you have to spoil yourself once in a while.
