Dark Horse has been making announcements this week ahead of Emerald City Comic Con, which runs this week in Seattle from March 2nd to March 5th. Recently, they revealed that they’ll be publishing an art book for Over the Garden Wall, and following that with another art book announcement, we have Go Team Venture! : The Art and Making of The Venture Bros., also presenting the art of an animated series.
The book will contain original art and sketches by series creators Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer as used in the hit Adult Swim animated show. The book’s writer Ken Plume also sits down with Publick and Hammer to have an in-depth conversation about the creation of each episode.
The book will also contain information about pitching the series to Adult Swim, character designs for each season, storyboards, painted backgrounds, and more, and includes a foreword from the voice of Wonder Boy, Patton Oswalt.
The Venture Brothers is one of those shows, like Archer, 30 Rock, and Arrested Development, that stands up to repeated viewings. It practically demands them. And this book more than enriches your repeated visits.
Go Team Venture!: The Art and Making of The Venture Bros. hardcover arrives on August 23, 2017, and is now available for preorder at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, IndieBound, Things From Another World, DarkHorse.com, and more.
