venture_featured

I’ve been given a harrowing assignment by the Guild of Calamitous Intent. More truthfully, I was assigned by ComicsAlliance, and technically I volunteered. But calamity is likely to result, intentional or not, because my assignment is to recap the new season of The Venture Bros, one of the most densely packed half-hour shows in television history. So please stick with me, as I attempt to succinctly recount the events of the Season 6 premiere, “Hostile Makeover.”

Go Team Venture! : The Best Venture Bros Fan Art

featured

Let’s go ahead and get two things out of the way immediately. First, while the fan art I’ve collected for you here is all great, it goes without saying (but I’m going to say it anyway) that this is only a small portion of all the incredible Venture Bros. fan art that’s floating around out there in the wild of the internet. So if I left some of your favorites out, it just means I didn’t come across it or had to leave it out for one reason or another.

Second, if you’re familiar at all with the Venture Bros. then you probably have a very good idea why some characters and a lot of the fan art that’s out there for this show couldn’t be featured. You know who and what I’m talking about. (Sorry, Molotov.) Honestly, even some of the tamer stuff I could include is already pushing it. Even though it honors many of the tropes and trappings of some our favorite kid-friendly cartoons and characters, the Venture Bros. has always been a show for the grown-ups that grew up on those kid-friendly cartoons. Or, you know, teenagers and young adults who are kinda familiar with them thanks to Cartoon Network.
