Things To Do In L.A. Saturday If You Like Batman: The Animated Series

If you are looking for something fun and free to do this weekend and are a fan of Batman: The Animated Series, you should head over to the Comic Bug in Manhattan Beach. The store will be celebrating Batman Day and the 25th anniversary of both Batman: The Animated Series and of Harley Quinn with a special event.

Starting at 1 PM, they're going to screen the pilot episode of Batman: The Animated Series, an episode called, On Leather Wings. The episode included Batman (Kevin Conroy), Commissioner Gordon (Robert Hastings), Harvey Dent (Richard Moll), Alfred Pennyworth (Clive Revill), Harvey Bullock (Robert Costanzo), Man-Bat (Marc Singer), and Dr. March (Rene Auberjonois). It was the launching point for what is arguably the most beloved incarnation of the Dark Knight on television or film. Though it was the pilot, On Leather Wings didn't air until later in the first season, with The Cat and the Claw Part I being the first episode to air.

After that, Lodyn Jackson (History of Batman) will be hosting a Q&A Panel with creators Kevin Altieri (storyboard artist and director, Batman: The Animated Series) and Bradley Rader (storyboard designer, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, illustrator, Batman Adventures and Catwoman). Altieri directed the pilot and Rader storyboarded it.

There will also be a free Batman Day comic given away.

The Comic Bug is at 1807 1/2 Manhattan Beach Blvd, Manhattan Beach, CA. 90266 or you can check them out on the web here.
