Yessss! The Art of the Venture Brothers will be a huge collection of original artwork, character designs, storyboards, painted backgrounds, and props from every episode of The Venture Bros. with accompanying commentary on the development of the series from cocreators Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer. And as you know, those guys can commentate with the best of them. If you clicked the above link, you will have seen the list price is $39.99. Patton Oswalt pens a foreword.
In addition to Publick and Hammer, artists we can think of who have worked on the show (off the top of our head—there are lots)—include Stephen DeStefano, Carly Monardo, Esao Andrews, Bill Sienkiewicz and so on…so it will be sweet. The book, which was rumored at SDCC 2013, will be out in October 2014.
As for Venture Brothers Season Six? That’s due in January 2015, last we heard, although a one hour special is planned to air this fall.
