At New York Comic Con I interviewed Superjail creators Christy Karacas and Stephen Warbrick, and here is a video of that interview:

Thanks to all those who submitted questions for me to ask them; obviously I was not able to ask them all of the many questions you fans posted. Several of the questions were answered in the earlier press conference, which I’ve posted below.

Adult Swim has uploaded a video of some of the highlights of the Superjail panel at NYCC, including Titmouse animator James Sugrue performing his live dub of the episode Gay Wedding.

Cosplay is common at conventions; here a fan shows off his Warden outfit

Superjail was at New York Comic Con this year, and they had some good news to share. The big one, in case you missed the earlier post, is confirmation of Superjail season three! They are currently working on writing the first episodes of the new season and plan to air them next year. Also announced is that season two will be getting a DVD release in 2012. Commentary has been recorded for the episodes, and the DVD will also contain special features such as animatics.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem likely that Superjail will be on Blu-Ray yet. The creators of the show are in favor of the idea, but ultimately the decision isn’t up to them. They had similar answers to questions of things like Superjail toys, video games, or crossovers with other Adult Swim cartoons: it would be cool, but unlikely to happen anytime soon.

Information about Superjail was dispensed in the form of two panels with question and answer sessions. The first was a press conference, for news outlets and websites such as this one; the second was a general panel where the creators of the show answered questions to a room full of fans. I’ve transcribed a couple excepts from these panels that you can read below.

Venture Bros. fansite The Mantis-Eye Experiment has posted an interview with Jackson Publick about Superjail. Jackson Publick is best known for being the co-creator of The Venture Bros. but he also works as a writer on Superjail and voices several of the inmates.

Mantis-Eye:
What were your contributions to the first season?

Jackson Publick:
I only worked on the writing of the last three episodes–”Cold Blooded” and parts 1 & 2 of “The Time Police.” We brainstormed and broke the stories together, and then I did some punch-ups with them. But I did a handful of voices throughout the season.

Mantis-Eye:
Has that role been the same for this upcoming season?

Jackson Publick:
Pretty much the same. I’m officially the Story Editor and like a Consulting Producer or something. I’m like the go-between for the creators and the network. I run the writers’ room, break the stories and outlines with the guys, give notes on their script drafts, and do some punch-up writing on the final drafts. Here and there I’ll give a note on the animatics or storyboards. I also direct the recording sessions, and I’ll be reprising my Ash, Nicky and Gay Inmate roles, plus a few new guys.
