Dark Horse Publishing The Art Of The Venture Bros.
For me, this is a perfect gift for Easter morning. Unfortunately, we don't actually get it until later this year -- in time for Halloween.
From the earliest character sketches to what I'm sure are pretty mind-blowing concept paintings, this is a book I'm dying to have, as The Venture Brothers is one of my absolute favorite shows.
Both Jackson and Doc are great artists and clever commentators on their own work, so that alone makes it worthwhile for fans. But you get extra observation from Patton Oswalt?
Now if only I had a coffee table...

To top it off, comedian Patton Oswalt pens a very special foreword!
