Did you watch Batman: The Brave and The Bold? We sure did. Do you miss Batman: The Brave and The Bold? We sure do.
Ready your Hammers of Justice! To celebrate the Season 1 Blu-ray release of the animated series that left behind the dark tone established for the Caped Crusader in the 90s and brought back the camp of both the 60s television series and comics of the Silver Age, The Paley Center for Media will be hosting a screening and panel during New York Comic Con on October 11th.
Open the Fridge will be in attendance and we could not be more excited. As much as we loved the style of Bruce Timm and Paul Dini during the run of Batman: The Animated Series, Batman Beyond, and Justice League, Batman: The Brave and The Bold gave fans a strong dose of over-the-top humor, featured some of the most obscure heroes and villains in the DC Universe (brought to life by the best voice over talent in the business), and also acknowledged decades of Batman history, both from the screen and the page.
Want to join us? Fans attending NYCC have the opportunity to join as tickets are available free of charge and on a first come, first serve basis to enjoy an episodic screening and discussion with Batman himself, Diedrich Bader.
To snag your own ticket, all you have to do is send an email to [email protected] with:
- Your name
- Your email address
- A statement that you heard about the tickets from us at Open the Fridge!
Be sure to make your move soon, though. Only a few tickets remain!
We also have it on good authority that another panelist will be joining Mr. Bader, and if our suspicious are correct, the panel has the potential to be quite OUTRAGEOUS!
