THE VENTURE BROS. SPECIAL - Space. The final frontier, where no one can hear you scream, revenge is only served cold, and the drinks are comped in the casino.

The half-hour animated special premieres on Adult Swim later this year.No word on if the special is an hour or half hour, but either way, Venture Bros. on the way in 2014! Thanks to Papa Thorn and Adam for sending me the news.

- PSNation has a nearly 10 minute video of a round table discussion Jackson and Doc had with various members of the press. Promises of season six, along with some good character discussions. Well worth watching!
- Kastor's Korner has a nice summary of a talk with Jackson and Doc along with 12 minutes of audio from the interview. Lots of insightful and interesting stuff in there, worth listening if you have the time!
- Short interview by Open The Fridge. Doc and Jackson provide some musical insight and, I guess if you ever wanted to see a guy wearing a Flash t-shirt and a sports coat interview Jackson and Doc then this is for you!
