The t-shirt deal of the day at TeeFury is a no brainer for me personally and any other fan of the Venture Brothers, Batman, or organized havoc in any of its forms. The shirt was designed by WinterArtwork and features everyone’s favorite doughy Henchman, Two Ton 21, with a logo in the style of the Batman logo.
The sale at TeeFury began today, Tuesday, July 12, 2011, at midnight EST, and will continue for 24 hours from then, and once it’s over, it will not be sold on the site anymore.

It’s time once again for another review of a Venture Brothers DVD set, this time with Season 4, Volume 2. I’ve gone on before about my love for this show, but I think this time I’m going to say exactly why I love this show so much. If you’re looking to see whether you should buy this DVD or not, yes, you should buy it. There are 8 great episodes on here that are well worth the money. If you’ve got a Blu-ray player, then definitely pick up the complete Season 4 Blu-ray, also on sale March 22, 2011. It’s very easy for me to recommend this show to anyone who likes comic books, action, old cartoons, new cartoons, and anything that makes you laugh.
I grew up watching Johnny Quest, and the whole show started as a parody of that show. The premise for Venture Bros. is essentially “What if Johnny Quest really existed, grew up, and turned out to be a failure in life.” It’s this central premise that drew me in at first, but it is the expansion of that premise that has kept me watching.
Today was a big day for fans of Adult Swim’s The Venture Brothers. Not only did it see the release of Venture Brothers: Season 4 on Blu-ray and the second half of the season on DVD, but we also found out that the show has officially been picked up for two more seasons.
The announcement was made on series co-creator Jackson Publick‘s blog. By my reckoning, this means we are all set for Seasons 5 and 6, and that is some good news to hear.
A fifth season of Venture Bros. will indeed happen, confirmed show creator Jackson Publick on his blog.
Another season of the Adult Swim hit show seemed likely and was hinted in the end credits of last season’s finale.
Unfortunately, there aren’t many details at this point, but then again this is a show where spoilers never really mean much compared to the humor it brings.
“P.S. One last Christmas gift: I promised “news” the last time I was here. And though I’m not at liberty to disclose the full details just yet, I am happy to at least be able to tell you that we were not lying in the end credits of our season finale: The Venture Bros. will indeed return. More on that later… Happy Holidays!”
I already covered the news coming out of the Adult Swim side of this panel here, but the bulk of this panel was taken up with news and questions regarding the Venture Brothers. There were a lot of great cosplayers in the crowd, including at least a dozen Dr. Girlfriends, so you could tell that a lot of people were fired up for it.
The biggest thing that the crowd saw was the preview for the new season, which premiers in October. The biggest thing in the preview was the look we got at how Hank and Dean are growing up, especially now that all their clones were destroyed at the end of Season 3. Dr. Venture will be getting a new bodyguard, although it wasn’t shown who that would be. As to be expected there were a lot of funny moments to look forward to.
Some information that has already been announced, but which I will repeat here, is that Season Four will be broken up into two 8-episode sections, with the first 8 in October, and the rest airing next year. Creators Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer confirmed that there will be a lot of characters showing up who have been mentioned before, but never seen, including Monstroso and Captain Sunshine. Viewers will also get to see who the members of the Council of 13 actually are.
