Comic-Con 2015: The Official Bags/Backpacks of 2015

Let’s face it: if you’ve made it Comic-Con, you’re going to end up with a lot of swag. Everybody needs something to carry it in. And for the sixth year in a row, thanks to sponsorship from Warner Brothers television, everybody does have something to carry their swag in.

It’s a bag. It’s a backpack. It’s an extra place to gather up your stuff when you pack up your car at the end of the convention. And it just so happens to advertise Warner Brothers’ product which… well, I’m impressed that at least one person in my family watches the shows advertised this year.

Attendees of SDCC each get a bag when they pick up their badge, and fans have even started repurposing them for fashion. Every year, you see at least one dress made from a popular bag of years gone by.

There are 13 options — and only one isn’t a show from Warner Brothers Television. It’s for Comic-Con itself, in an interesting and probably necessary branding move.

With other conventions growing in popularity (though that hasn’t hurt Comic-Con any), it’s a good idea for Comic-Con International to establish that it, too, offers more than one show. So if you don’t make it in to SDCC, there’s still WonderCon (temporarily in Los Angeles for 2016) and Alternative Press Expo, aka APE, in San Jose.

Batman Unlimited, a line of direct-to-video animation launched in May and 100% appropriate (and overdue) for children:

BATMAN

I guess this means Morena Baccarin is a regular!

GOTHAM - HEROES

And of course, the villains:

GOTHAM - VILLAINS

One Million Moms will boycott this bag:

LUCIFER

Prediction: This will be the most sought after bag of 2015.

SUPERGIRL

Although the piercing gazes of the Winchester Brothers may either make a close second in popularity or just hypnotize a lot of passers by…

SUPERNATURAL

One of my favorite shows…

TEEN TITANS GO

Anybody? It sounded like an intriguing and perfect CW premise; I’ve just never watched it.

THE 100

Go ahead. Flash the crowd.

THE FLASH

Oddly enough, The Originals is the spin-off show. Isn’t it ironic?

THE ORIGINALS

I do wish they could rethink the logo, but… Ian Somerhalder has some stare, doesn’t he?

THE VAMPIRE DIARIES

This is interesting. I keep forgetting about this online animated series that’s coming — set in the same reality as Arrow and The Flash. I do have my fingers crossed that an actor will be cast as Vixen to appear live in those series.
