Or more accurately a discount on your very own Hankbuck towel. The Venture Bros. crew at Titmouse are offering up a Hankbuck towel for a mere $25. However if you have any Hankbucks (one came with each Shirt Club shirt) print out this form on Astrobase Go!, fill it out and mail it in with your Hankbucks for a discount. Each Hankbuck is worth one buck off the towel, meaning if you were a subscriber the towel can be yours for only $15!
Film School Rejects has a nice post-season 5 interview with Jackson and Doc that delves into a lot of creative process stuff, as well as fan interaction, budgets and so on. It’s a good interview as it’s not the typical set of standard Venture Bros. questions which is something I always appreciate.
Hey, cool, EP Daily has an interview with Jackson and Mike Sinterniklaas (and Patrick Warburton)! Mike has changed his hair since I last saw him.
Less than a week later Adult Swim has put up video of the Venture Bros. SDCC panel held last Friday. The panel was series creators Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer along with Brock Samson himself, Patrick Warburton. Come for the discussion about Patrick’s son cosplaying as Shoreleave, stay to admire Jackson and Doc’s most excellent speedsuits:
YouTube curation site What’s Trending? has an interview with Jackson and Doc that they conducted yesterday live from San Diego Comic-Con. Doc reveals his secret bowel movement Twitter account and, as per tradition Jackson and Doc refuse to answer a spoiler question.
If you’re interested in other clips from the same interview, Doc gives advice to Amanda Bynes as Dr. Girlfriend and Jackson performs the monolog from Pacific Rim as the Monarch. Both are recommended.
For those of you who are going to SDCC and attending the Venture Bros. panel (with Jackson, Doc and Patrick Warburton) if you are also into the costumed play Jackson posted details about the Henchman 21 contest that will take place after the Venture Bros. panel, Friday at 12:15pm (it ends at 1pm). Basically, if you dress up as Henchman 21 then you have a chance to be in the photo for the last Shirt Club shirt when it goes up Sunday night at midnight. So dust off your yellow jerkin and orange cardboard wings (or whatever other Gary costume you might have) and get ready! Head on over to Jackson’s LiveJournal (or his tumblr, if you prefer) for the full scoop.
With the season five finale coming up and Comic-Con happening this weekend to go along with it, we’ve achieved a perfect storm of Venture Bros. goodness. However, if you can’t get out to Comic-Con, or if you can’t get a ticket for one of Jackson and Doc’s signings, here’s a remedy for that. Maybe. Win some signed stuff instead! Sure, you won’t get to meet Jackson and Doc, but you’ll get to pretend that you did. Or you can just say you won something, which is pretty impressive itself. I never win anything.
At any rate, win some stuff signed by Jackson and Doc (probably) in celebration of season five’s closing and Comic-Con’s inevitable bounty of panel videos! Do it!
