San Diego Comic-Con 2011: Venture Bros.

As it often goes Comic-Con is the start of the summer of Venture Bros. and often contains news, appearances and other awesome info about the show. At the very least Jackson and Doc will show up and say a ton of funny things, which is always welcome. With season five (and six) already confirmed and a new 15-minute special episode ("From the Ladle to the Grave: The Story of Shallow Gravy") set to premiere at the convention there will certainly be a lot of buzz for the show at the convention.

Below you can find all the panels, signings and events that revolve around the show, from appearances by actors in totally different panels to official Adult Swim stuff to unofficial fan-run events. It should be a busy weekend! If anything is missing or left out don't hesitate to let me know!
