San Diego Comic-Con is just around the corner and the designs for the swag bags are here! Each of the 18 different editions of the 2016 Comic-Con bag features three panels of artwork, designed by Warner Bros. Worldwide Television Marketing. On one side of the bag is a Velcro-fastened cover flap featuring iconic show-related imagery that opens to reveal a second unique show-related design; the all-new Comic-Con 2016 official design appears on the opposite side.
Supernatural, and there will also be a combo bag with The Originals and The Vampire Diaries! Other bags highlight content from Warner Bros. Animation, like Justice League Action and Teen Titans Go!, as well as Blue Ribbon Content’s digital series Vixen. The all-new DC Super Hero Girls universe is also showcased! But you're thinking -- wait, that's only 16 designs. That's because two bags will also feature upcoming films Suicide Squad and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Suicide Squad is released August 5, while Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them debuts November 18. A Harry Potter swag bag? Yes, please!
More than 135,000 bags have been produced altogether, and will be provided to Comic-Con attendees throughout the convention.
But 2016's bags have more swag than ever because the cool convention carriers come with a hidden secret — an interactive, augmented reality experience courtesy of the visual discovery app Blippar. This year, it’s not what’s in the bag, but what’s on the bag — and just a few simple steps will allow fans to unlock the surprise content, using the Blippar app on iOS and Android devices.
Check out this video that will walk you through the new features:
And the best part? Ian Somerhalder wants to teach you all about the the Blippar experience so you're ready for Comic-Con:
