After a 5 year hiatus, Astrobase Go has brought back Shirt Club to celebrate the much anticipated Venture Bros. Season 5. Destined to be the greatest moment in animation history (until the premiere of Season 6), Season 5 starts off with a bang, then a shirt comes flying out!

Little has changed with Shirt Club, and that which has changed is for the better!
Each shirt is STILL only available for one week, and then immediately discontinued.
Each shirt is STILL made to order, and the Astrobase will only print what is ordered.
Each shirt is STILL designed (from concept to final) by Doc Hammer and/or Jackson Publick.
Each shirt STILL dons a design specific to the episode it is sold in conjunction with.

What has improved?
Each shirt is NOW packed and shipped by paid professionals, freeing up interns to learn animation and the fine art of running errands for those who are comfortably on payroll.
Each shirt is NOW less expensive than they were for the first Shirt Club. I know! That's nuts! Does the Astrobase love you more now than they did 5 years ago? Yes they do!
Each shirt NOW comes with $1.00 in official HankCo. Hank Bucks! What are Hank Bucks? It's fake money with Hank's face on it, and it may someday be redeemable for merchandise, prizes, or whatever!

You know the score. Opportunity has knocked twice. You snooze, you lose. Venture fans, this is your proudest moment! You know that Official Venture T-shirts are as rare and beautiful as albinos, and ones created by the actual Venture brothers are even more rare, and like five times more beautiful… What are you going to do? Answer: SHIRT CLUB!

HERE IS HOW THE VENTURE BROS. SHIRT of the week CLUB WORKS:

Each week we premiere a brand new episode of The Venture Bros. television program, we will premiere a brand new t-shirt design to go with it RIGHT HERE. The shirt will be on sale for one week only--until the next episode and the next shirt premiere.

We'll only print as many shirts of each design as we receive orders for (okay, we'll probably make a couple for ourselves, too) and once the ad for a shirt is removed, that shirt will never be available again.

Venture Bros. Shirt Club shirts will all be printed on only the finest American Apparel shirts available, and each is priced at $20 ($22 for 2XL + up).

This season, we have 8 brand new episodes premiering. Which means we'll be premiering 9 new t-shirts. Wait, what? Exactly! In honor of our hour-long, double-length season premiere (and our general indecisiveness), we're releasing 2 shirts for that episode.

2 WAYS TO ENJOY SHIRT CLUB:

1. A LA CARTE
Each week, a new shirt will be offered for sale at the low low price of $20 ($22 for 2XL + up). Simply check this page every week, order the shirt(s) you like, and enjoy!

…or, for the frugal completists, True Venturoos and Honorary AstroBase Cadet Candidates alike…

2. SUBSCRIBE NOW TO THE FULL SEASON OF SHIRT CLUB!
For the low, low price of $165 ($180 for 2XL sized subscribers) you will automatically receive ALL 9 Venture Bros. Shirt Club shirts, week by week, as they're produced--assuring you will never ever miss a Shirt Club shirt!

Not only will you save time and money over the cost of ordering each shirt individually, but you'll also receive the "NOW IN GLORIOUS EXTRA-COLOR" BONUS T-SHIRT, ABSOLUTELY FREE. This navy blue beauty features the titular Venture Brothers, our dubiously quotable tag line, and is available to SHIRT CLUB SUBSCRIBERS ONLY, making it the most limited and exclusive shirt. Did we mention it's FREE with every subscription?

SO WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? When we say "Subscribe Now," we mean it! Because subscriptions to The Venture Bros. Shirt Club will ONLY BE AVAILABLE FROM NOW UNTIL 11:59PM (EST) on JUNE 7th. That's when the first week's shirts disappear--and so does your chance to subscribe to the full season of The Venture Bros. Shirt Club, save all that money, and be the proud, elite owner of the Venture Bros. "Glorious Extra Color" T-Shirt!


THE FINE PRINT

SHIPPING
All Venture Bros. Shirt Club shirts will be shipped via First Class U.S. Mail. Domestic shipping is included in the price of every shirt. For international orders, a $9.00 (USD) surcharge will be added to the price. Please allow 2-4 weeks for delivery.

THE BRAND YOU TRUST, THE FIT YOU DESIRE
All Venture Bros. Shirt Club shirts are printed on stylishly fitted, American Apparel brand t-shirts, which are made right here in the US of A. American Apparel shirts are sized very accurately for a "fitted look," so we've included the American Apparel size charts so you can order with confidence. Because…

REFUNDS/EXCHANGES
Shirt Club shirts are non-refundable and we do not accept exchanges (we're seriously too busy making a TV show to deal with all that paperwork).

PROBLEM?
In the unlikely event of a screw-up on our end, however--say, we send you the wrong size or something--we will of course exchange the offending item for the proper one, at our expense. Please contact us at VBShirtClub@titmouse.net to alert us to the problem, and someone will get back to you a.s.a.p. This email address is only for Shirt Club members and staff to conduct official Shirt Club business, however. Please do not send fan mail, hate mail, questions about Dean's hair, Hatred's tits, or requests to "bring back Triana's hot friend" to this address.

CANCELLATION
The Venture Bros. Shirt (of the week) Club doesn't want you if you don't want us. So if you unwisely choose to opt out of your subscription, we will grudgingly refund your money minus the FULL REGULAR PRICE ($20/$22 for 2XL/3XL) of any shirts that have been produced up to that point--and you will NOT receive your super-limited edition subscribers' exclusive "Glorious Extra Color" t-shirt. Because the bonus shirts are shipping last this season. Because bonus shirts are for closers. The loyal, the hearty, the "in-it-for-the-long-haul" super-fans. When you wear one, this is how people will see you.

YES!!!

Curious though. In the copy, it says the bonus shirt makes it 10 shirts total. Does that imply we're only going to have a 9 episode season?

Friend, I hate to break this to you, but there are only 8 episodes this season. The order was for 10 half-hours. One of them was the Halloween special, which already aired back in October. And two of them got combined into our epic, hour-long premiere episode. So 8 new episodes, starting June 2nd at midnight (EST).

Verymuch looking forward to them!

I didn't know LJ was still in use

Thank you for creating one of the best shows on TV!

I can't say no to a shirt with five-colors!

Yay, Shirt Club! Maybe I'll actually get one or two this time around.

Yee Haw! Blam, Blam, Blam!

(until the premiere of Season 6)

Season 6 is already on the table??? O rly?

I *LOVED* last shirt club. People always asked me where I got them! Then I lost a bunch of weight, realized I didn't need so many shirts anymore, and said goodbye to most of them....

(I'm turning them all into a quilt)

>..> I still don't need anymore T-shirts, but I'm excited about this and will probably do it again anyway!

Bam! Ordered! Bringing me to 24 Venture Bros t shirts in total. Now I am only six to seven VB shirts away from never having to do laundry for an entire month.

Although per your reply above, does this mean there is no shirt for the Halloween episode? I was not sure if that episode would be rolled back into the fold when this season airs (as it was produced during these episodes.)

Edited at 2013-05-27 06:35 pm (UTC)

Nope... no shirt for the Halloween episode. The first run of this season will be Halloween-free. Once it goes into repeats, I think they'll slide "The Brimstone Assembly" into the strip as the second episode.

Speaking of T shirts, the Billy Quizboy shirt totally was the best shirt in batch one.

You are so totally wrong, but I like your spirit.

Boom! Yummy! and ordered! Love you guys and sooooo stoked for June 2nd!!! How do the shirts tend to run? I am um Hatred like in my size and went with XXL, do they tend to run small? Would a 3xl have been a better call?

There's a size chart on the ordering page, but yeah... American Apparel shirts tend toward a "fitted" look. Which is to say, "true to size" and not baggy.

Hey Jackson, thanks for the info, I am going to try to see if they will swap it for me and if not, will just order a second set in XXXL (can't hurt having two, money is going to a great cause!) O and are you and Doc going to be at NYCC? I need to get the rest of my "The Nozzle" storyboards signed by you guys! We Love You!!

Because bonus shirts are for closers.

SHAKING AND CRYING! I was gonna wait for each daily shirt but YOLO, no good lunches for the next few weeks but so worth it! :D

Super Shirt Club!

I got in for the whole season and I'm looking forward to having many new shirts to show off.

I had to comment for the sole purpose of saying that I love the Glengarry Glen Ross reference there. =)

Now to scratch all my pennies together...

Eat the pennies.

If I subscribe for the whole lot, can I pick and choose sizes with each shirt? Or must they all be the same size?
I ask because I'd like to have some for my wife and some for me.

Can we get a bongus shirt for the trivia thread members!?!?!?!

I know I won't be missing Shirt Club this time, in fact I might just spring for a friend's birthday present.

Last year he gave me Sharky's Machine on DVD and a pack of Nickle Nips.

Premiere Event in Melbourne Florida.

The Venture Home News Girl on the Street reporter reviews Cinemaworld Season V Premiere Screening

Greetings Venturoos, Your Girl on The Street Reporter, Katie "Scoop" Timoney here! I was very fortunate to be in attendance of The Venture Bros. Season 5 Premiere: "What Color Is Your Clean Suit?" At Cinema World in Melbourne Florida. A Special thanks goes out to the Theatre and to John McDonald for making the whole thing possible, because boy, was it a lot of fun!
I arrived about two hours early and went to the front to pick up my vouchers. I cannot tell you how excited I was when I saw the poster advertising it, I mean, in three hours, I'd be seeing New Venture! After giddily receiving my seat and snack voucher, I entered the theatre. To my surprise there was a Monarch Henchman taking tickets. I looked around and noticed that the entire staff was dressed as Monarch Henchman. It was a nice touch.
seeing as I was super early I ran into John, who I chatted with breifly and got to look at the set up, which included a life sized H.E.L.P.eR., action figures, and several items made by Cinemastery studio. So far there were only three people there for the screening and they were seated outside the theatre. I chatted with them and found out that they happened to be Venture Home News Readers, and had recently won some of our prizes. That was pleasant. I went around and got my concessions which were all covered under my voucher, and tried to take pictures.
Eventually the theatre doors opened and the small line that had formed entered. I continued to go in and out to take photos and chat with people. I was happy to get to see several friends from Dragon*Con, including, John, Lady Lomax, and Susan Blix. As well as a good assortment of cosplay. There was of course The Monarch and Dr. Mrs, a Dr. Venture, SPHINX Brock, Brick Frog, Nikki Fictel, Dr. Girlfriend, Crossplay versions of Shoreleave, Sgt. Hatred, and Pyjamed Hank , Hank and Dean, Henchmen, and Joanie Mars dressed as a Queen Amidala version of Dr. Mrs The Monarch. I was quite impressed
Another nice touch was the Venture related trivia before the screening started. There were questions such as: "Before they became an organization for Supervillany, what was the purpose of the Guild of Calamitous Intent?" Answer: To Protect the Orb.

Finally after everyone had arrived, the raffle began. Prizes included Production art, Brock action figures donated by fellow fans, and gift certificates for Famous Faces and Funnies, a local comic book store in Melbourne. Prizes were delivered in typical raffle fashion by Hench person 46, to the lucky winners. After all the prizes had been given out to the lucky winners, the screening began.

We started by watching the season 4 finale "Operation P.R.O.M." if you are able to watch it prior to the season 5 premiere, I highly recommend it, because the beginning of the premiere is the morning after "P.R.O.M." Not to mention, it's just a brilliantly written and hilarious episode in its own right. I hadn't watched it in a while and found myself laughing as though it was the first time I'd seen it. Let it be of note that this was the first time I'd heard the explanations of what a "Rusty Venture" was uncensored. That was... colorful...
After "Operation P.R.O.M." ended we went directly into "What Color is your clean suit?" I won't give any spoilers, but I will say this: some of the Questions brought up after the Halloween episode will be answered, we will be introduced to several new characters, and see the return of old faces, and as always there will be a wide array of pop culture references and call backs to earlier episodes. I will also say, It was amazing.In addition to the movie every one who attended was given a free Venture Bros. poster from Adult swim. It was a great night!

This is Scoop Timoney signing off, enjoy the official Premiere of "What Color Is Your Clean Suit" Tomorrow at midnight on Adult Swim, and don' t forget: GO TEAM VENTURE!
