Adult Swim’s cult hit The Venture Bros. was back at San Diego Comic-Con this year. Friday’s panel featured show masterminds Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer along with James Urbaniak, the voice of Dr. Rusty Venture, dressed like it was 1991 and ready to premiere a new music video from band-within-the-show Shallow Gravy. That night, a party Quality Social in San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter featured a set from Flying Lotus and a Venture Bros. costume contest. The next day, Publick and Hammer worked Adult Swim’s ice cream truck.
This was our third year covering The Venture Bros. at SDCC and, during that time, we’ve seen this show that’s filled with superscience, supervillains and pop culture references become more popular. We’ve also learned a few things. With Hammer and Urbaniak slated to appear at Dragon*Con in Atlanta on Labor Day Weekend, we thought we might share a few of these convention do’s and don’ts for fans of the series.
