Nerd family, I have seen the promised land and it is the new book Go Team Venture: The Art and Making of the Venture Bros from Dark Horse. This hardcover book goes episode by episode for the pop culture cartoon buffet that is the Venture Bros. With interviews from Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer themselves, the book gives insight into the inside jokes, costume changes, and bizarre characters that become main characters in the Cartoon Network television show.
I deeply and wholeheartedly am in love with this book and found myself falling down the rabbit hole and reading every word, every photo description tag, and going through all the original art. True Venture fans, you are not prepared. Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer are well known for their tangents and inside jokes, and this book is no different. Think that maybe a particular scene in Venture Bros was a reference to something else? They’ll tell you where it came from. Feel like an episode was not their best? Chances are they agree with you and you’ll get to read about how much they’ve beaten themselves up over it since the episode aired.
With season 7 of The Venture Bros back on the air, it is time to spend some time with this absolute treasure of a book.
Go Team Venture: The Art and Making of the Venture Bros is now available.
