<![CDATA[Jackson Publick Interview at io9]]> http://mantiseye.com/news/2018/06/jackson_publick_interview_at_io9 http://mantiseye.com/news/2018/06/jackson_publick_interview_at_io9#comments Tue, 26 Jun 2018 21:15:00 UTC Mike http://mantiseye.com/news/2018/06/jackson_publick_interview_at_io9 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.

<![CDATA[Season 7 Returning This Summer?]]> http://mantiseye.com/news/2018/05/season_7_returning_this_summer http://mantiseye.com/news/2018/05/season_7_returning_this_summer#comments Sun, 27 May 2018 08:19:00 UTC Mike http://mantiseye.com/news/2018/05/season_7_returning_this_summer Forbes has an interview with Titmouse head honcho, Chris Prynoski which mostly goes into info on the studio and all it's producing. However, there's one relevant tidbit at the end:

And as to rumors of a highly-anticipated return of The Venture Bros? Team Titmouse was tight-lipped in the interview, but Adult Swim has confirmed the new season will be out this summer.

So there you go! Summer is just around the corner, so now it's just a matter of when and how much Venture Bros. we'll have. Get ready!

<![CDATA[Venture Bros. Season 7, Coming November 2018]]> http://mantiseye.com/news/2017/09/venture_bros_season_7_coming_november_2018 http://mantiseye.com/news/2017/09/venture_bros_season_7_coming_november_2018#comments Sat, 16 Sep 2017 16:50:00 UTC Mike http://mantiseye.com/news/2017/09/venture_bros_season_7_coming_november_2018 a video of a recent Adult Swim bump was posted and we now have a rough date for Venture Bros. Season Seven! You can watch the video above but I've transcribed it for ease of use:

We weren't making half hours when Chris pitched The Venture Bros

so we tried to force him to make it a quarter hour

It's a good thing he refused

Another thing many people don't know about Venture

Is that we're still making it

543

days since season 6
 

422

days until season 7

THE VENTURE BROS
2003 - present

"Chris" of course refers to Chris McCulloch, aka our beloved Jackson Publick. 422 days would place the premiere of season seven some time in November of 2018. So there you go! Thanks to Kiki Canon for capturing that video!]]>
<![CDATA[Convention Catch-Up]]> http://mantiseye.com/news/2016/10/convention_catchup http://mantiseye.com/news/2016/10/convention_catchup#comments Sat, 15 Oct 2016 17:02:00 UTC Mike http://mantiseye.com/news/2016/10/convention_catchup Venture Bros. train keeps on moving. Here's a couple videos from convention panels this year:

Doc Hammer attended Dragoncon back in September and there was a Venture Bros. panel of sorts with Hal Lublin (Wide Wale) and Dana Snyder (The Alchemist, who was not in season six). Check out the first part and the second half when you've got a spare hour. Doc goes into some season seven stuff, but they're still in early phases of writing so it's mostly audience questions. Super thanks to MooseyMooz for sending these along.

In slightly more recent convention news we've also got the NYCC panel from a few days ago with Jackson and Doc. I haven't had a chance to watch it yet, but I'm sure they reveal many secrets coming up for season seven! Enjoy!]]>
<![CDATA[Order Venture Bros. Season Six on Blu-Ray or DVD!]]> http://mantiseye.com/news/2016/10/order_venture_bros_season_six_on_bluray_or_dvd http://mantiseye.com/news/2016/10/order_venture_bros_season_six_on_bluray_or_dvd#comments Sat, 15 Oct 2016 16:50:00 UTC Mike http://mantiseye.com/news/2016/10/order_venture_bros_season_six_on_bluray_or_dvd up on Amazon and it's $21.99 for the Blu-Ray or $17.96 for the DVD. It contains all of the season six episodes, plus All This And Gargantua-2, commentary from Jackson and Doc on every episode and deleted scenes. Also it's been out since October 4th so you might have already ordered it, but just in case here's a friendly reminder!]]> <![CDATA[Venture Bros. Renewed For Season Seven!]]> http://mantiseye.com/news/2016/07/venture_bros_renewed_for_season_seven http://mantiseye.com/news/2016/07/venture_bros_renewed_for_season_seven#comments Mon, 25 Jul 2016 15:23:00 UTC Mike http://mantiseye.com/news/2016/07/venture_bros_renewed_for_season_seven Venture Bros. will be returning for a seventh season! I don't recall hearing much about the show not being under consideration for renewal, but it's nice to have official word of it. It's also safe to assume you don't need to hold your breath waiting for it. Based on the production schedule for the most recent season the premiere is likely not going to happen until 2018 at earliest, but we're likely looking at some time in 2019. That's still a ways off, but it's something to look forward to.

Thanks to Thorn and MoosyMooz for sending this in!]]>
<![CDATA[Season Six: Done But Not Forgotten]]> http://mantiseye.com/news/2016/03/season_six_done_but_not_forgotten http://mantiseye.com/news/2016/03/season_six_done_but_not_forgotten#comments Mon, 21 Mar 2016 18:33:00 UTC Mike http://mantiseye.com/news/2016/03/season_six_done_but_not_forgotten Venture Bros. finished up last night. Did you catch every episode? If you didn't, I have some good news: it will be re-airing all this week, starting tonight at 1am (eastern/pacific, adjust accordingly for your own timezone) on Adult Swim. You can also check out the extra-special, hour-long "All This And Gargantua-2" this upcoming Sunday night at 12:30am. After that, next Thursday night (March 31st) becomes Throwback Thursday and you can re-watch season one in all its non-HD, kinda badly animated glory.

Still not satisfied? Then head over to Adult Swim's Venture Bros. video page where you can watch the first five episodes of season six and "Gargantua-2" for free! No questions asked. You can also check out "A Party For Tarzan" and "Red Means Stop" if you have a cable provider login (or a generous friend who has one). That should hold you over until season seven, right? Okay, probably not, but you should be used to the waiting by now. Happy watching!]]>
<![CDATA["Red Means Stop" Discussion]]> http://mantiseye.com/news/2016/03/red_means_stop_discussion http://mantiseye.com/news/2016/03/red_means_stop_discussion#comments Mon, 21 Mar 2016 03:41:00 UTC Mike http://mantiseye.com/news/2016/03/red_means_stop_discussion Venture Bros. season six, at any rate. Here's your discussion thread for "Red Means Stop", the season six finale. Use the comments to talk about the episode, the series or whatever else you see fit. As expected and as always, there will be spoilers, so don't read the comments if you haven't seen the episode yet (or if you don't care about spoilers, I guess). Enjoy, and see you next season, whenever that may be.]]> <![CDATA["A Party For Tarzan" Discussion]]> http://mantiseye.com/news/2016/03/a_party_for_tarzan_discussion http://mantiseye.com/news/2016/03/a_party_for_tarzan_discussion#comments Mon, 14 Mar 2016 03:41:00 UTC Mike http://mantiseye.com/news/2016/03/a_party_for_tarzan_discussion Venture Bros. season six, "A Party For Tarzan", which I presume will contain Tarzan and some sort of celebration for him. Maybe not though? Either way, use the comments to talk about the episode (which Jackson says is his favorite of the season) or the series in general. Note that, as is often the case, there are likely to be spoilers in the comments so you may want to avoid them until you've seen the episode. Have fun!]]>
