Meet Venture Bros. Color Supervisor Liz Artinian Tonight!

Just noticed that Jackson mentioned this, so if you're going to be in or around NYC tonight you should consider heading to the 5th Avenue Apple Store where Venture Bros. color supervisor (among other talents such as Too Art for TV curator) Liz Artinian will be giving a talk:

From MTV Animation to Cartoon Network, Brooklyn-based painter and animation artist Liz Artinian knows a thing or two about cartoons. Currently the Color Supervisor for "The Venture Bros." on Cartoon Network, Liz will share her insight into the animation world and demonstrate her artistic skills.

The talk will be from 7pm until 8pm and the 5th Avenue Apple Store is at 5th between 58th and 59th street in Manhattan.

Mantis-Eye Presents: Ask Jackson & Doc Stuff

During NYCC I'll hopefully have a chance to talk to Jackson and Doc and I want you guys to participate! Much like Adult Swim, but probably with a higher chance of success, you can post your potential questions for Jackson and/or Doc here in the comments. No question is too crazy or too off-topic, so feel free to ask pretty much anything, even if it's not Venture Bros. related. I will be screening these, of course, but as long as you're not racist or something it will probably be okay. Note that you also should try to stay away from questions about the future of characters or plots in upcoming episodes since they don't answer those sorts of questions. If you're shy you can also email mantiseye.experiment@gmail.com with your question(s).

And if you're also attending don't forget the Venture Bros.-related convention schedule and that you can also score a sweet Mantis-Eye Experiment button.

Publick Nuisance: Season 5 Status Report

Short update by Jackson today to remind you of Adult Swim's online panel question submission thing and with some quick notes that season five is moving along:

Doc and I are writing now. And we're writing some pretty good shit, if I do say so myself.

Production on Season 5 will begin very soon. The budget and schedule have been set, we're ordering computers, and we're currently hip-deep in the process of finding and hiring the right artists for the right jobs.

For those of you familiar with the process, once a script is written it generally takes around eight or nine months to become a fully-formed episode since there's character design, storyboarding, voice recording, rough animation, final animation, post-production, music-making and revisions to everything along the way. This is in no way an official estimate, but if we assume production starts in November that means season five will probably begin around September or October of next year (depending on delays and such). Yes, I know, but we've all been here before multiple times. Just hang in there, it'll be worth it!

Jacket Bass Tablature

During my travels through the Information Superhighway I happened upon tablature for "Jacket", which should come in handy for those of you who are musicians (especially those of the bass-playing variety). If you think you have any corrections or anything like that feel free to let me know or post in the comments. Enjoy!

Mantis-Eye Loot of Reasonable Quality: NYCC 2011 Edition

For those of you in the vicinity of New York City, I am pleased to announce that The Mantis-Eye Experiment will have a presence at New York Comic Con in the form of me walking around New York Comic Con. Though if you read this site and are also attending the convention you probably have more pressing Venture Bros.-related concerns. That said, if you happen to find me somehow you can have one of those fancy, newly designed Mantis-Eye buttons pictured above. Buttons are all the rage, you know. Similar to at SDCC I'll post a picture of my (Venture Bros.) shirt on Twitter to make it marginally easier to find me. Also if you have any better button-giving-out suggestions feel free to let me know, because I'm out of ideas!

New York Comic-Con 2011: Venture Bros. Style

For those attending this year's New York Comics Convention Adult Swim will have a fairly large presence there as far as panels and appearances go. Along with panels for Robot Chicken, Delocated, Eagleheart and more there will also be a Venture Bros. panel and a signing. Right now the only guests slated are the always awesome Jackson and Doc. For all your Venture Bros. NYCC news check out the Mantis-Eye NYCC 2011 Venture Bros. Schedule.

And for those not attending the convention you will still have the chance to ask Jackson and Doc if Kim is coming back thanks to the wonders of the internet. Head on over to Adult Swim Presents for the skinny on how you can ask questions that they may just answer live at the convention. It's just like being there, kinda. Maybe.

Venture Bros. Three Inch Figures Need YOU

... to preorder! According to this Venture Bros. 2012 Pre-Order Page on Entertainment Earth the figures are now in the hands of, you, the fans. Here's the skinny:

Your pre-order for these characters has never been more important! We need to hit a certain number of pre-orders before we can throw the switch for these figures to start production, and that's where you come in! Just pre-order the figures from this list or ask your favorite comic and toy shops to order the figures for their store. Your credit card will not be charged until the figures arrive in 2012-- provided we meet the order goal-- and then you'll be able to have been a part of Venture Industries history!

These figures sport 10 points of articulation and unlike our retro action figures, are 100% original and new sculpts. The factories require a large commitment, and that's why we wanted to let you know that your pre-orders are so important to making this line a reality.

These figures will not be produced unless pre-orders meet our targets. If you want Brock Samson, Phantom Limb, or even Hank and Dean, show your support with a pre-order. No character is "safe," the shape of the line is entirely within your hands!

All orders must be placed by October 31, 2011. At this time we'll tally our orders and we will make an announcement on how the line will proceed by November 30, 2011.

Right now the little graphic on the page shows only a sad 3% of the required preorders have been attained, so if you want to see these figures and want to help out you should pre-order them like crazy. Individual figures are $9.99 each and a set of five figures is $49.99. You can make a difference! Thanks to Seth Longmire for sending along this news.

Update (8:30pm): Changed the link on Entertainment Earth to a better, linkable one that they posted on their Twitter.

Even More Dragon*Con 2011 Cosplay!

If the first set just wasn't enough the generous DalekEmpress sent along even more cosplay photos from Dragon*Con 2011! This set includes some favorites such as Scaramantula and Evil Dr. Venture. Check it out!

Venture Bros. Panel And More At New York Comic-Con

For those attending New York Comic-Con (October 13 - 16), Adult Swim just sent out its full dockett of panels and other events for NYCC. Here's the Venture Bros. panel info:

ADULT SWIM: The Venture Bros
4:15 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Location: IGN Theater
Talent: Jackson Publick (co-creator) and Doc Hammer (co-creator)

The Venture Bros show creators Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer, perennial Comic-Con favorites, will discuss their original series and answer questions that have been submitted by fans on AdultSwimPresents.com/NYCC. Launched on Adult Swim in August 2004, The Venture Bros. is an inspired spoof of 1960s action cartoon shows such as “Johnny Quest.” The animated series follows the bizarre misadventures of the Venture family, which includes world-renowned Dr. Venture, his dimwitted sons Hank and Dean as well as Brock Samson, their bodyguard assigned by the government to keep an eye on the family who is then promptly forgotten by the Feds.

However if that's not enough you can also catch Jackson and Doc at 1pm for a signing in room 1E07. More info to come later!

We Love You Jackson Publick!

Posted yesterday, on Mr. Publick's birthday, is a podcast on Geek Night Out wherein Paul Gannon chats with Jackson about pretty much everything:

As a result, you can hear Jackson talk about Star Wars, his personal influences, hidden music tracks, Pulp, getting backstage at concerts, being lost in London, where he keeps his collectable figurines, what to expect at Comic Con (too late), the mythology of The Venture Brothers, toys, musicals and a whole host of other little titbits!

Clocking in at just over 40 minutes it's a pretty beefy interview with lots of great info (both Venture Bros. and non), so you should certainly check it out.

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/
