Jackson, Doc and Urbaniak Confirmed For Dragon*Con

For those of you attending Dragon*Con this year (in Atlanta, Georgia from August 31st to September 3rd) you will be pleased to know that Venture Bros. co-creators Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer, along with Dr. Venture himself('s voice), James Urbaniak have all been officially added to the guest list for the convention. You can of course expect them to participate in the usual plethora of panels including what is sure to be an exciting Venture Bros. panel. A full schedule of panels and other Venture-y things to do will be posted here closer to the show when it's ready, so keep an eye out for that.

Jackson Publick on The Season 5 Premiere, SDCC And More

Introducing the latest entry in my ever growing series of interviews with Venture Bros. co-creator Jackson Publick. Jackson was nice enough to let me ask all the tough questions nobody asked at Comic-Con including a bunch of stuff on season 5 and some convention-specific stuff.

In the biggest news, however is on the season 5 premiere, which Jackson revealed, in a Mantis-Eye World Exclusive, will be a full hour-long episode. He also cleared up any remaining confusion over the Halloween special's format (it's 22 minutes and part of the 10-episode season) and answered many more questions that I should probably know better than to ask at this point. Read the SDCC Wrap-Up Interview with Jackson Publick to find out all the details!

Even More SDCC 2012 Video Interviews

The new batch! After the last batch here is a fresh new collection of video interviews with a besunspectacled Jackson and Doc from this year's SDCC:
  • Sirk TV On-The-Scene Interview - Has a lot of clips from the show interspersed with Jackson and Doc talking about their writing process which involves gold tablets and a big board and a wax imprint of Doc that looks like he's kissing Jackson (but isn't!). Yup.

  • Comics Online Interview - Comics Online's Kroze has his yearly interview/hugging session with Doc Hammer. There's a lengthy embrace and some rubbing, as you might expect. I'm sure there's an interview and some questions in there too somewhere. Maybe even some answers!

  • Girl Gamer TV has a short interview that is much calmer than the others and with less meandering insanity, which may be good or bad, depending on your viewpoint.

SDCC 2012 Jackson and Doc Press Event Video

Nerd Reactor has around eleven minutes of the SDCC press event that the recent io9 article went into. It's worth watching for more Jackson and Doc, plus you can find out Doc's tactics for fighting James Garner, which the io9 interview didn't get into (or at least didn't quote).

Venture Bros. SDCC 2012 Panel Video

Adult Swim was extra quick and extra generous in getting their SDCC panel videos up this year, putting up a full 38 minutes of the Venture Bros. panel. Click the link to watch or check out the embedinated version below!

io9's SDCC Interview With Jackson and Doc

io9 has a pretty good interview with Jackson and Doc from the press hour at SDCC. As is the custom there are a lot of hilarious meanderings about black and white cookies and Pulp (which isn't entirely off-topic) but there's also plenty of meaty goodness as well:

Jackson Publick: We expand the background stories of the characters from the OSI. The hardest thing about making up a name for a [fake] G.I. Joe guy is that all of the stupid names are actually taken by G.I. Joes.

Doc Hammer: Every time I come up with one, I think "Oh, this is so ridiculous!" Then I go on Wikipedia to check and they've done that one already. Who knew? The names we came up with are good because the dumb ones are actually G.I. Joe characters. Like "Headshot." That's a hot one!

SDCC 2012 Venture Bros. Write-Ups

To go along with the Jackson and Doc video interviews here's a collection of write-ups for the panel and potentially other things involving Venture Bros.. More will be added as they roll in. Enjoy!
  • Spinoff Online has a nice write-up that gets into many of the details of the panel. Until an official video comes out this is a pretty good one to read to get all of the Jackson and Doc banter we all know and love. Just read it in their voices in your head.

  • Geeks of Doom has a short write-up with listings of the special guests and a couple of photos from the panel as well.

SDCC 2012: What We've Learned

For those of you, like me, who didn't attend SDCC this year but what to know what the heck is going on with Venture Bros., here's a rundown of all the goings ons.

The biggest news is that the previously announced long-form episode will be a one-hour special that airs between seasons five and six. Season five will end likely in March or April (depending on when it starts) but no news on how soon season six will begin after that.

Geeks of Doom has also reported on (among other things) some of the special guest voices for season five:

Several guest stars were announced for the upcoming season. J.K. Simmons will guest star in the Halloween special. Other guest voices for the season include Aziz Ansari, John Hodgman, Tim Meadows, Gillian Jacobs, and Paget Brewster.

Finally some more into about the Halloween special: it will actually take place after the season five premiere, so there will be a lot of confusing moments in it. This misordered timeline doesn't seem to be entirely intentional on Jackson and Doc's part, but they also seem to be pretty okay with it at this point. Jackson described it as a "happy accident" in at least one interview.

And, as always, keep checking back for any new info, interviews and that sort of thing.

Jackson & Doc SDCC 2012 Video Interviews

Since there are usually a ton of these I'll just create this article and add to it over the next couple of days. If you want to see reporters ask Jackson & Doc questions for two or three minutes in front of a huge Comic-Con backdrop in a crowded press/interview area, this is the place to be!

  • Grace Randolph of Bleeding Cool has the first interview with Jackson & Doc, questioning them about the Halloween special and Henchman 21, among other things. Thanks to Robert in the comments for pointing this one out!

  • MTV Geek interviewed Jackson and Doc on their livestream. You'll need to skip to precisely 54:58 on the video to see it. It's a fairly meandering interview and the interviewer is slightly obnoxious but Doc at least threatens to Indian leg wrestle him, which pretty much saves it. Thanks (again) to Robert for sending this one in.

Jason Lenzi Gives G4 A SDCC BifBangPow! Walkthrough

Jason Lenzi, founder and CEO of BifBangPow! gave a video interview with G4TV on all of the BifBangPow! stuff at SDCC this year. That of course includes a very brief look at the Venture Bros. line of toys which includes all the usual suspects, however some new items can be seen for the first time including Shore Leave (in SPHINX garb), The Alchemist and (drum roll, please) Sargent Hatred in Venture blues! That one may not be sold at Toys R Us. There are also more finalized versions of Pete White and Jefferson Twilight, so yes, you will be able to complete your Order of the Triad set. Those of you who are at the con' can check them out and also pick up the Brock Samson convention exclusive 3 3/4" figure.

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!

I haven't seen a press release yet, but people on reddit say June 4, 2019 is when Season 7 is on bluray. https://www.reddit.com/r/venturebros/comments/b14aa2/june_4_2019/
