Everyone at Comic-Con gets a swag bag, and it’s stupid big.  It’s one of the most visible and ubiquitous objects at the Con, and Warner Bros. has wisely taken ownership of it for years.  The bags are always plastered with advertising for the studio’s TV series and upcoming movies, and this year is no different.  The studio has announced that this year’s bags will feature the shows Arrow, The Big Bang Theory, The Following, Revolution, Supernatural, the Vampire Diaries, Teen Titans Go!, and the classic Batman TV series.  On the movie side, attendees can wear advertising for GodzillaThe LEGO Movie, and 300: Rise of an Empire.  As an added bonus, the bags come with detachable capes.  I’m hoping for the Teen Titans Go! bag, but I’m sure I’ll get stuck with a Vampire Diaries one.  I’m sure my wife is counting the days until she has to throw this years enormous bag away.

The 2013 San Diego Comic-Con runs from July 18 – 21st.  Which is your favorite bag?

      I can’t wait for all the wheeling and dealing this year. I’m really digging the Arrow and Batman Capes.

    • I will stab a child or fight an old lady for the classic Batman one.
