Comic book publisher Dark Horse Comics revealed plans to release three new art books earlier this week, based on the animated series, Over the Garden Wall, The Venture Bros., and Rick and Morty.
The Art of Over the Garden Wall, is a comprehensive look at the production and development art behind the miniseries, which centers around two half-brothers that travel across a strange forest in order to get home. Along the way, they encounter many odd and wonderful things.
The colorful hardbound 184-page art book is expected to be available on Sept. 13, 2017, and will contain hundreds of pieces of concept art, production art, and sketches, interviews with cast and crew, commentary from creators Patrick McHale and Nick Cross, as well as art from the 2013 short film, Tome of the Unknown: Harvest Melody, which served as the series’ pilot.
Go Team Venture!: The Art and Making of The Venture Bros., will gives readers a deeper look into the series, which follows Dr. Thaddeus “Rusty” Venture and his sons Hank and Dean, on a number of strange adventures, facing off with a wide array of villains, in a series that debuted in 2003, and is now in its sixth season.
The 184-page hardcover art book, will contain in-depth conversations with executive producers Publick and Hammer, about the creation of every episode, from the pilot through season six and beyond, original sketches and never before seen artwork, as well as a foreword from Patton Oswalt, the voice of Wonder Boy. Dark Horse Comics has set the release date for the book, as Aug. 23, 2017.
The Art of Rick and Morty takes readers further into the crazy world created by Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland. The series follows Rick Sanchez, a genius scientist (also a psychopath), as he drags his daughter Beth, son-in-law Jerry, granddaughter Summer, and especially his grandson Morty, across the universe, into a series of dangerous misadventures. A third season of the series is currently in production.
Slated for release from Dark Horse Comics on Sept. 12, 2017, The Art of Rick and Morty will be a 224-page, full-color, hardcover art book, written by show insider James Siciliano, with commentary from show creators and a collection of process, concept, and production art.
