ECCC 2017: Go Team Venture! Dark Horse Announces The Venture Bros. Art Book Based on Hit Adult Swim Series

Dark Horse is excited to offer fans a never-before-seen look at Adult Swim’s The Venture Bros. animated series with artwork and original sketches by Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer.

In Go Team Venture!: The Art and Making of The Venture Bros., writer Ken Plume sits down with series executive producers Publick and Hammer to have an in-depth conversation about the creation of every single episode, from the pilot through season six and beyond. It’s all here, the earliest sketches of Hank and Dean scribbled in a notebook, pitching the series to Adult Swim, learning the ins and outs of animation, character designs for each season, storyboards, painted backgrounds, behind-the-scenes recollections of how the show came together, and more.  This oversized book is the comprehensive companion to the art and making of the The Venture Bros. and includes a foreword from the voice of fan-favorite character Wonder Boy, Patton Oswalt!

Created and directed by Publick, and written and executive produced by Publick and Hammer, The Venture Bros. is an irreverent but affectionate animated television series that chronicles the hair-raising adventures of Hank and Dean Venture, the not-especially-bright twin sons of pill-popping “super-scientist” Dr. Thaddeus “Rusty” Venture. The show premiered as a pilot on Adult Swim in 2003, followed by a full first season in 2004.

Go Team Venture!: The Art and Making of The Venture Bros. hardcover hits shelves August 23, 2017.

The finale of season 6 of Venture Bros. gets the Graphic Policy Radio treatment! All obscure references explained! From defunct NYC nightclubs to Edgar Allan Poe to super-powered Nazis.

Join pop culture and history experts Steven Attewell (whose secret identity is that he’s an actual historian) and Elana Levin (who’s secret identity is that she used to go clubbing) discuss Venture Bros episode 8 “Red Means Stop.”


Had a great time doing last night’s podcast with @racefortheironthrone. It’s been an ambitious year at @graphicpolicy radio. We’ve done so many podcasts, deep dives into the content of fantastic shows like this one.

Thanks for everyone who’s helped promote the show. Thanks to @mrchrisgeorge for his amazing art. Having those character designs on tumblr to reflect on was super helpful.

This season of the show has been outstanding. There are a few episodes that felt like they were literally made for me. Namely “Maybe No Go” with all the reflections on New Romantics music. And “It Happening One Night” which basically justified my college research on Warhol.

The Venture Bros makes a show about things that I love. It’s a show where characters show real growth and development and story-arcs. It’s a show with careful and beautiful animation. The character designs are the best around. This is a season that loves NY. I hope they stick around here for more!
