Axel-In-Charge: Extending "Secret Wars," Excitement for a "Totally Awesome Hulk"
After four years of first-come, first-served free-for-alls for giant totes at the Warner Bros. booth, the entertainment company has teamed with Comic-Con International to give bags to attendees as they check in to the convention. More than 125,000 bags have been produced.
This year WB is releasing a whopping 11 separate designs promoting the following properties: The Big Bang Theory, Chuck, Fringe, Human Target, Nikita, The Vampire Diaries, Batman: The Brave and the Bold — The Videogame, The Looney Tunes Show, Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, Clash of the Titans (for its DVD release) and, get this, Brightest Day.
Yeah, I figured that last one would get your attention. There’s a catch, though: Attendees get just one bag, and they’re handed out randomly. So while you may be in line eyeing that David Finch image, there’s a chance you’ll walk away with Scooby-Doo! instead. If you’re lucky, or willing to fork over a little cash, maybe someone will trade with you.
The image at the right is, of course, the Brightest Day design (click to enlarge). After the break you can check out the art for The Brave and the Bold, as well as what appears on the other side of the bags.
