San Diego Comic-Con bags aren’t really good for everyday use beyond Comic-Con, but every single year I still manage to squeeze it into my suitcase so I can take it home and never use it again.  Perhaps it’s a little silly, but the designs tend to be pretty cool and when I score one for a show I like, I’m hanging on to it.  And this year will probably be no different; I’ve already got my eye on a few.

For the fifth year in a row, Warner Bros. Entertainment teamed up with Comic-Con to create 13 different bags to be distributed upon check-in.  This year, the line-up includes designs for Arrow, Constantine, The Flash, The Following, Gotham, iZOMBIE and The Originals.  Hit the jump to check out all 13 Comic-Con 2014 bags.
