The Venture Brothers Season 4 Opener Post-game

Premiered last night at midnight. I grabbed my copy from iTunes (for some strange reason, there are no torrents), but you can watch it the legal way on adultswim.com. That is an order. Things of note based upon my first viewing:

## Spoilers follow

* No Monarch in the season opener. Feels weird.
* I have a feeling the [CGC][cgc]-grader-as-timestamp was someone’s [4am miracle][miracle].
* Possibly the longest [post-credits sequence][post] in the show’s history?
* I’m expecting for a fan remix that puts the story in chronological order. I guess you’d need a torrent for that, though, and the show is MIA on the main trackers.
* Here’s the [real cover to Marvel Comics #1][cover], faithfully reproduced in the episode. [ComicsPriceGuide.com says][says] this issue is worth $360,000 for a CGC-graded 9.6 copy.

Overall, though, bravo. This is Jackson and Doc’s growth spurt as storytellers, and we’re all being made witness to it. I can’t wait for more.
