The tale of the Comic-Con bags

The gigantic Warner Bros. bags at Comic-Con are legendary.

Comic-Con is known for its cool freebies — especially if you attend the big panels — and chief among them is the big canvas bag that Warner Bros. gives out to hold all of your other loot in. These things are seriously huge, more than 2 feet by 2 feet, and with a big strap so you can sling it over your shoulder, and a compartment on one end that serves as a perfect poster tube. Take it from an experienced con-er, you get a WB bag, and you’re good to go for the whole week.

This year, obtaining a WB bag got a whole lot easier.

Typically there’s a horde of people surrounding the big Warner Bros. booth — so chaotic that it’s all but impossible to navigate around — all trying to get their hands on these bags. This year, WB has done something utterly brilliant: they’re allowing Comic-Con to use the WB bags as their official bags that everyone gets when they pick up their attendee badge. No more clamoring for a bag of your own; you get one automatically before the Con even starts.

This year, eleven exclusive designs have been made for the WB’s official Comic-Con bags, all of which will be handed out as part of the 125,000 bags to be given at random to Con goers when they check in. The 2010 designs represent such WB titles as Fringe, Chuck, The Big Bang Theory, Clash of the Titans, DC Comics’ Brightest Day, and more. For a full gallery, click here.

Plus, we have a bonus gallery for you. Each year, fans take their appreciation of these bags to epic heights, using the canvas they’re made of to sew together their own original fashions. These outfits can get extremely creative, as you can see in this gallery.
